Local Outreach

Let us not love with words, or speech but with ACTIONS and in TRUTH.
I John 3:18

Local Outreach

God gave us spiritual gifts to share with others. Serving in the community is a way to share these gifts.


Light building & repair
Use your building skills to bless our elderly and hurting. This ministry helps in several ways: in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, helping outreach organizations with needs, and as needs arise from our community.

Breaking Bread

Feeding the homeless
Once each month we visit MUST Hope House to prepare and serve delicious and nutritious meals for the men, women and children who reside there.   Also, throughout the year we prepare meals for church functions in Hillside’s kitchen  You may choose to cook or serve.


Blanket Ministry
HUGS  Blanket Ministry lovingly creates beautiful throw blankets to bless those in our community who are sick or hurting who might need a little HUG and a reminder that they are loved. If you love crocheting and fellowship, join this group.

Forever Fed

Mobile food pantry
Forever Fed receives food in several days throughout the week. The food is distributed via drive-through pantries. The need for grocery support has increased dramatically throughout the pandemic.

Prison Ministry

Sharing the Love of Christ is what prison ministry is all about. Through KAIROS prison ministry weekends, inmates experience the kind of love that can only come from God. KAIROS changes lives and restores hope in the hopeless. Servants of KAIROS are thoroughly before going into the prison.
