"Pay Attention" From Pastor Rob
        With the calendar flipping to August, something is definitely in the air. Yes, it is still summer. The dog days are ahead of us. Unbearable humidity and the accompanying exhaustion. Dry spells and boiling sun so hot you can cook an egg on the blacktop. However, …
High school football teams and marching bands have begun their preparations for the fall. University students are finishing up internships and preparing for the rigors of the next academic year. And at Hillside Church, more new visitors are checking us out each Sunday, and many are coming back for a second and third time.
I’ve given up trying to predict when change is in the air. What I urge you, my brothers and sisters in Christ at Hillside church to join me in doing is this: pay attention.

Solar Agreement Update
Hillside voted unanimously last Sunday to enter into a solar lease agreement with Eagle Solar & Light to install a solar electricity system at the church. This system will generate about 88% of our building electricity use on an annual basis. This installation reflects Hillside's commitment to care for God's creation. The use of solar electricity will greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants. Hillside will also save money on electricity bills. The actual installation date has yet to be determined.
