Vacation Bible School
VBS will be June 10-14 here at Hillcrest from 6:00 to 7:30 PM.  The theme is Camp Faith.

Join us for Prayer Meeting
Our prayer meeting attendance has increased as we improve our presentation recently.  We are meeting in the sanctuary, using PowerPoint and having music.  Come and join us.
"A prayer meeting will always tell the true interest of the church members in spiritual and eternal things. The prayer meeting is as the pulse to the body; it denotes the true spiritual condition of the church. A lifeless, backslidden church has no relish for the prayer meetings."--Selections from Testimonies to the Managers and Workers in our Institutions (Ph 149) 32

New Facebook
A new facebook page is in place.  We will be streaming to the new page from now on.  Select the FaceBook button on the left, or use the following link to find it:

Live Stream Church Service  
Using a Roku or Apple TV, select Add Channel, Search Channel, and look for "Hillcrest SDA Church".  You can add it to your channel list to see us in more comfort when you are at home.  It is a free channel.

If you cannot be here with us, the next best thing is to watch on Live Stream.  Just select "Live Stream" from the menu above at 10:45 on Sabbath and you will be with us.  Soon after the service is ended, the content of the live stream is automatically posted so you can see it if you missed it.  Soon after the service has completed, the entire service is available by selecting "Recent Videos Unedited". These videos are in temporary storage.  Edited permanant storage is found by selecting "Recorded Sermons" from the menu, then select "Video" from the second menu.  You will see a scrollable menu showing the events available.  Audio is available by selecting "Recorded Sermons" from the menu, then select "Audio".

We will be livestreaming this 
Sabbath, as follows:

- We will be broadcasting the Worship Service at 10:45am.

- Sabbath Afternoon Study at 5:00 PM.

Past sermons are available using the "Recorded Sermons" tab.

If you want to bring your tithes and offerings while you are away, use the link on the left menu of this website to access "Online Giving".  This takes you to a secure site where you can fill in your envelope and bring your offering.

I want to strongly encourage you to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, not on the news media, not on your worries. Only Jesus can save, and He promises to provide for all our needs, so we have nothing to fear! Especially during the Sabbath hours, take a break from social media and the internet (other than to watch our livestream). Spend time with loved ones. Invite a few people over to your home. Get outdoors and spend time in the fresh air. In times like these we must set our minds on things above, and not the 24/7 frenzy of the media.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore, we will not fear.

God bless 

We are delighted that you are visiting us on the World Wide Web. It would be a blessing to have you join us at church this Sabbath.  We have Sabbath School for all ages that begins each Saturday at 9:30 a.m.. Our church service begins at 10:45 a.m.  Sabbath Afternoon Study is at 5 p.m. Come and worship with us as we remember our Savior and learn of God. All are welcomed in God's house!
