WHAT TO EXPECT
You are welcome here!
New guests at Hilltop
We are so excited to have you as our guest at Hilltop. Here are a few questions you may have as you come to Hilltop for the first time.
Are children welcome in worship?
Absolutely. We think it is important for children to be present at worship. At worship, children are shaped by things that we say and do together in that hour, helping them develop a lifelong faith. We do not expect children in worship to act like adults – since they aren’t. We often hear babies and children throughout the worship service and truly consider them joyful noises. If the noise of your child is bothering you, you are also welcome to step to the large entryway where a speaker is located and windows let you see inside the sanctuary. During the school year children in preschool through 6th grade are invited to Kids' Connection which takes place Wednesday evenings from 6:15-7:00 pm. A nursery is available for families to use year-round. We are working to provide a fully staffed nursery and if you know of any qualified individuals, please direct them to Job Openings.
How should I dress?
You will find that the people of Hilltop are comfortable dressing in many ways. Some dress in jeans/shorts and t-shirts while others dress up and everything in between. You are welcome to dress however you feel most comfortable.
What is the worship service like?
Everything we do in worship is to give Glory to God and to experience the breakthrough power of God’s love in our lives. SUMMER WORSHIP - There will be one worship service each week, on Sunday at 10:15 am, beginning May 28. This blended service incorporates elements of both traditional and contemporary worship—with a regular mix of choral music, instrumental jazz and worship band. FALL WORSHIP - Beginning September 10, there will be two worship services each Sunday, a traditional blended service at 9:00 am and a contemporary service at 10:30 am. The 9:00 am service will build on the rich traditions of the United Methodist liturgical and musical heritage, featuring both old and new hymns, piano, organ, choir, instrumental and other vocal music, all supporting a scripture-based message. The 10:30 am service worships with elements that are innovative, free, and fresh—with the music being a regular mix of older hymns and newer music all presented with an excellent, culturally relevant sound led by our Worship Leader along with a band of vocalists and musicians.
How do I connect beyond worship?
For many people worship is the “front door” of experiencing what God is doing at Hilltop, but we don’t just want you to stay there. First, be sure to fill out and turn in the Connect Card. That is the best way for you to officially connect with us for the first time. Beyond that, know that we want you to be our guest in everything that God is doing here. From Connect Groups to mission opportunities, there is something for everyone. Check out our GET CONNECTED page to discover more.
