Visitor FAQ

When is worship?

We worship together on Sunday at 10:00 am in our sanctuary, and also offer a live-stream link for viewing from the comfort of your home. Our traditional service lasts approximately 65 minutes. During these unusual Covid times, we offer water and juice outside on the front lawn following worship. Please introduce yourself — we work hard to remember to wear our name tags, so you will feel welcome at the Hills Church!

What happens at worship?

As you enter our sanctuary, an usher will greet you, give you an Order of Worship, and guide you to your seat.

Communion is offered the first Sunday of the month consisting of a small piece of bread and a small cup of grape juice. These will be passed out to you, and the ministers will prompt you when to eat and drink. Our communion table is open to everyone—baptized or not, confessed or not, sure or not, saint or sinner.

All of our services maintain the ancient Christian practice of receiving an offering to support the church’s ministries. We welcome your gifts and encourage everyone to live a life marked by generosity. If you are unable to give financially, please consider an offering of time or talent to our church, another organization, or a neighbor in need.

What’s available for children & youth?

  • Infants/Toddlers: Fully staffed paid infant and toddler room.
  • Toddler/Pre-K: Sunday School is offered during the 10 am worship service.
  • K through 5th grade: Remain in worship for 15 minutes, and then are dismissed to class. On the 1st Sunday of each month, grades 3-5 stay for communion.
  • Children 6th grade and up: Customarily stay for the full service.  On the 2nd and 4th Sunday our middle school has a special class at 10 am.
  • High School students: On Sunday nights, our high school youth meet in our Upper Room for fellowship and fun!
  • For your youngest with you: Should your infant or child become exceedingly restless, there are rocking chairs and a limited play area in the Board Room (located at the back left of the sanctuary, facing the chancel).

Help offered for challenged individuals?

Our church is handicapped accessible. When coming to the church, you should drive around back, following the handicap signs up the ramp to the north entrance to the church. If you come alone, an usher can take your car to the parking lot and bring it back at the end of the service. If you would like to park your car yourself, there is a handicap parking area in the large parking lot.  This parking area has easy access to a pedestrian ramp that leads to the west entrance. Go in the west entrance, and ask for directions to the elevator.  The elevator will take you to the second floor/sanctuary level of the church. If you are hearing or sight impaired, we will provide you with a hearing device, or a large print Order of Worship, which includes all hymns.
