We continue this week in our study of the Psalms by focusing on psalms and hymns of praise! See how remembering to praise God – not just for what He has done, but also for who He is – will change your mood and your outlook, and give you strength in the midst of trials and challenges.
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. Listen as we explore the uplifting power of Psalms in our uncertain world!
There is no doubt that we are in challenging times! Our challenges are all quite different – some are overwhelmed and busy, others are bored and stir-crazy at home; some are weary and fearful, others are sick and fighting for life. The question is, Where is God in all this? How do we find Him in the midst of our struggles? Is He here for us in these challenging times? Let’s find out together!
There is no day in the church calendar like Easter Sunday! And even though we are apart, we are joined together with a message that never changes: Jesus died, was buried, and was raised again on the third day. It is the crux of our faith and what gives us hope that we will also rise with Him! Be reminded this week how the Risen Jesus comes to you and me, just as we are, and calls us to follow Him.
In this week’s message we look at how the disciples were SO SURE that they would stick with Jesus, even when the going got rough… yet they didn’t! They didn’t know their own weaknesses or the deceitfulness of their own hearts. However, Jesus did, and loved them still. See how God loves you and me in the midst of all our broken promises, imperfections, and failings, and how that love can change us forever.
This is a full worship service broadcast from the sanctuary of Hillside Church. To keep people safe, there is no in-person service on Sunday morning during the Pandemic, but we can still worship in Spirit and in Truth together. We continue our series, “Yes Jesus, but…” as we look at the disciples’ reaction to Jesus saying He would be leaving them. See how Jesus has completely taken care of all their concerns and needs, and how He takes care of us as well.
What do we look forward to more: our next vacation or Jesus’ coming back? Jesus is coming back and this fact is one of the greatest hopes of our Christian life. Come and be reminded how our lives here are just an instant, a fading glory compared to the wonder of what is to come!
Before the sermon on Obedience, we held an interview via FaceTime with Tim Westergren, leader of the Spain C&MA mission field. He spoke with us about what kind of missions work is done in Spain and why it is so important for churches like ours to partner with a mission field like Spain. Pastor Beth followed this with a short introduction to our last Discipline of Freedom – Obedience! Learn how this discipline can bring freedom to your life!
