Keeping You Informed

Nursery Update

We are so excited to announce that we will be opening the nursery at a limited capacity at the 11 am service only. We will be only taking children who are 2 and under as of September 1st. This will be limited to 10 children, first come first serve so as to attempt to appropriately distance, however, we will have the 2’s classroom available with livestream if we reach 10 children and a parent wishes to stay with their nursery age child. If you have any questions please feel free to contact lperry@hillsidegr.org

Mission and Vision

Our church leadership has been in a season of very intentional listening. We’ve heard what you love about Hillside, we’ve heard complaints, and we heard invaluable feedback through our church-wide survey. Your feedback mixed with continued education and research has inspired our team to update our mission statement, vision statement, and guiding principles.

Take a moment to hear about our new mission and vision!
