Punching Holes in the Darkness

Thank you for serving!Matthew 5:14–16 (NIV) “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

We are challenging you, Hillside Church, to be a light to our community by doing 500 hours of community service during this season of Lent! We have provided several projects for you to be a part of and you may also perform your own service to the local community. Check in often here to see the progress we are making!

Fill in this form to log your hours and you will see the thermometer rise! Let’s bring light into the darkness by loving our neighbor and reaching 500 hours together!

Look below the form for descriptions of our service projects and contact information. For general questions regarding our community service challenge, contact Pastor Matt or Pastor Beth at hillsidechurch448@gmail.com.
