The Hills Church : Glorifying God through Transformed Lives

Sunday Morning FAQ

1. Do you have Sunday morning Bible Studies (Sunday School)?
YES! We have small group Bible study classes (we call them "Bible Fellowships") that meet at 9:15 am. There are classes for all ages. As you enter our middle parking lot you will see a smaller building on the left. There is a welcome center there where someone will be glad to help you find the classes for you and your family. Sunday Bible Fellowships end at 10:30 am.

2. What time does Sunday morning worship start?
10:45 AM. The worship service is for all ages, and we have a nursery and children's ministry for your children. The nursery is in the smaller building where the guest center is located.
If you'd like to see how one of our worship services goes, you can find archives of our live streams on our Facebook page.

3. Do you have something for my kids?
YES! We have age-appropriate children's ministry for children from bed babies to 5th grade. We have a security system we follow to keep your children safe when they are not with you. Children can be checked into and out of children's ministry in the smaller building where the guest center is located.

We currently utilize The Gospel Project curriculum in our children's ministry. We choose curriculum based on its biblical soundness and ability to lead children to Christ.

4. Wait. So you have children's ministry for both the Bible Fellowship and for the Worship Service time?
Yes! We have Bible Fellowships for kids at 9:15 AM as well as a childcare for babies/toddlers and Children's Worship (K-5th grade) at 10:45 AM. Some of our parents believe the best place for their children is in worship service with them. We encourage this! They bring their children to Bible Fellowships and then pick them up to take them to the Worship Service with them. We provide both options: bring your children to service or have them attend Children's Worship. We want you to do what is best for your children to lead them to and grow them in Christ.

5. Are there reserved seats?
Nope. No reserved seats here. The worship service is in the large building with the steeple on it. When you enter the sanctuary foyer, feel free to grab a hot drink to bring into the worship service with you. Then, come on into the sanctuary and feel free to sit wherever you would like.

6. What should I wear?
There is no expected dress code at our services, some dress more formally, while most wear more casual clothes. Generally speaking, most people wear business casual dress.

7. Will I have to raise my hand or talk or something?
You will not be singled out as a guest and made to raise your hand or stand up. We want you to just relax and enjoy the service with us. We do have a guest card in the pew or one you can fill out online that we would love for you to fill out with your contact information, prayer requests, and any questions you may have. We use the information to contact you to see if we can pray for you and follow-up on any questions you may have. You can hand the guest information card to any usher or just drop it off in the offering box/basket on your way out after service.

You'll also find more information about the order of service and current announcements in our bulletin we handout each Sunday morning.

8. What kind of music do you have during worship?
Our music is a blend of worship songs and hymns. We strive to sing songs that will move our hearts, minds, and affections to glorify God.

9. Do I have to give money?
No. We do not expect our guests to give an offering. Our members practice giving as a gospel habit to support all that we do as a church. If you would like to give an offering, you can do that by dropping your offering in an offering box/basket on the way out of the sanctuary after church or give online if you would like.

10. Do I have to come forward at any point in the service?
At the end of the sermon (a message one of our pastors shares from the Bible), we have a short time of commitment (we refer to it as the "invitation") where we all stand and then sing and pray as we think about the message. If you have a question or feel God is speaking to you, you can come forward and talk to anyone on the pastoral team at that time. If that seems too uncomfortable, you can always talk to someone from the pastoral team after the service. The person who delivers the sermon usually stands at the main door to greet people as they leave. You can ask him questions at that time or make an appointment to talk with one of pastoral team members later in the week.

11. What time does service end?
Our Worship Service ends by 12:00-12:15 pm.
