What to Expect
By now, you might be considering a personal visit, but you’re still a little unsure of what you can really expect once you arrive. We hope this information will help answer some of your questions.
What's here for my kids?
During all of our services, we have safe, clean nurseries available for children through 24 months old. If there is a need, our nursery workers have the ability to contact you through our vibrating pager system.
Our children’s classes take place during our 10:30 AM service on Sunday mornings. We have a preschool class for children through first grade, and children in second through fifth grade can attend our junior church. In either class, your child will learn fun and exciting Bible stories that will help him understand the greatness of God. Our classes are taught by qualified, friendly teachers who make church memorable for your children.
On Wednesdays at 7:00 PM, Nathan Auxer and his wife work with the teenagers of Hillview Baptist Church. Not only does Bro. Nathan bring a message from God’s Word that applies to the teenagers each week, but he and his wife love and mentor the students, striving to nurture a heart for God in each young person that comes.
What is a morning service like?
During our morning service, you can expect a warm welcome, inspiring congregational music, and a message from God’s Word. The music begins the service and is followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Daniel. The entire service is a little over one hour in length. Following the morning service, we offer cookies and coffee in order to encourage friendships.
How should I dress?
Hillview Baptist Church has no dress code for members or guests. We will be delighted to have you as our guest and are happy to receive you however you may be dressed. Our ministry leaders dress in more traditional “Sunday attire”; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Hillview Baptist Church!
What are the other services like?
On Wednesday evening at 7:00 PM, we have our "Bible Hour", where Pastor Daniel goes verse-by-verse through a passage in the Bible and makes it relevant for day-to-day living. It is conducted at Mt. Vernon Elementary like the Sunday morning service, but goes a little deeper into God's Word. This is a great opportunity to really plug in and understand what the Word is really saying!
On Sunday evenings, we have "Home Fellowships". This is an opportunity to study together in a small group setting. You can get to know others similar in age in a more personal level by meeting for group activities, sharing prayer requests, and hearing a message from God’s Word. Our Home Fellowships meet in various members’ homes on Sundays at 6 PM. If you're interested in getting plugged in, contact Pastor Daniel or Bro. Nathan and they will point you in the right direction.
Am I expected to participate in the offering?
No. We don’t invite you to Hillview Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a family of friends, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
