"Who Tells Your Story?" From Pastor Rob
Magnified Bible Verse
The past few years, I have tried, through writing sermons and newsletter articles, to shape the Christian story for people who listen when I preach and read what I write. Through much of 2021, I looked at Biblical narratives in Haggai, Zechariah, and Deuteronomy that define the community of God as it is being established. In the former texts, the people of God were rebuilding after exile. In the latter, they were settling the Promised Land after wandering in the wilderness. I imagined us as a church rebuilding after being exiled in quarantine and wandering in the land of COVID. I envisioned people streaming back to church after COVID.
       I think we did some good work in Haggai, Zechariah, and Deuteronomy in 2021, and I am glad we examined those passages.  READ MORE
Fellowship Meal -This Sunday, February 5th
During worship this Sunday, February 5th, we will be celebrating Communion. It is a Hillside tradition that whenever we celebrate Communion (also known as the Lord’s Supper) together, we share a meal. Please plan on joining us by bringing a covered dish to share. Come to worship then stay for the Fellowship Meal that will immediately follow.

Set-up and kitchen clean-up assistance is needed. Contact the church office if you are willing to help.
