Current sermon series: God’s Playlist

Pastor Beth is taking us through the Psalms every week! Join us on Facebook and on the website every Sunday at 10:30 to hear more.

In the chaos of life around us, God has given us a way to connect our hearts with Him – the Psalms! These are God’s playlist: songs and prayers that we can offer to God no matter what we are going through. They show us how we can bring our complaints, our confessions, our thanks, and our worship in ways that will lift up God and lift our spirits at the same time. Come with us as we explore the uplifting power of Psalms in our uncertain world!

COVID-19 Information

In-person services have resumed! But as the pandemic continues, you will still be able to worship remotely with your Hillside family at 10:30am on Sunday. Log onto Facebook as we release the video of singing and the sermon, and comment along with others who are watching. (Note that from September 6, services will return to 10:30am.)

If you are not on Facebook, you can watch the singing
and the sermon beginning at 10:30am HERE.

After the service, at 11:45am, we will continue to host a Zoom call for anyone who would like to share fellowship and discuss thoughts on the message. You can join the call from your computer or phone by clicking here.

At Hillside we are offering help to anyone quarantined or in need of assistance due to the Coronavirus. If you are available to help or need help, please fill out the form below so we can contact you. This can include shopping, a ride, information, or just someone to speak with or pray with. We are here for each other and our communities! Thank you to all who are available to help.

“God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline” 2 Tim 1:7. Let us all look to God who is our help in our times of need.

Hillside Awaken Charity:Water Walk! September 22, 10-3

We have a special opportunity as a church to be part of a walk to raise money for those who need clean water around the world with our sister church, Awaken. On Sunday, September 22 at 10:00am, rather than meeting at Hillside for our worship service, we will join with Awaken outside the Westchester Turf & Tennis in Hawthorne. We will have a short time of worship and prayer there to offer our time to God, and then we will walk together to raise money for Charity: Water, an organization that works to provide clean, safe water to impoverished communities throughout the world. It will be a two mile, flat, stroller-friendly walk directly from the club.

We will return to Westchester Turf & Tennis to enjoy a lunch together and also games and fun activities for adults and children. It will be an incredible time of fellowship and celebration! 

All are invited to join this event! It will be a welcoming event to bring a friend or neighbor to and they will also enjoy knowing that their participation will help those in need around the world. Here are the details you need to know:

  • To be part of this event, you need to register here: On this page you can register your involvement for the day (required to participate, to provide proper numbers for the facility and lunch providers). You can also donate to charity: water or “join the team” by creating your own campaign under the church campaign to raise money. See attached FAQ sheet for more info. 
  • Please share this event link with your friends! They can come and walk with us, they can donate, and they can even join the team. This is a cause that everyone can put their hearts behind. Clean water is a gift from God!
  • Together we hope to raise $3000 to help those in need! 100% of the money raised will be used to build clean water projects
  • We have information on how to give by check if that is preferred. Please see the FAQ sheet attached for more information.

Any questions, please email us at We are looking forward to seeing you there!
