Walk Through Bethlehem Pushed Back Again
We are sorry to announce that due to the continuing Covid restrictions, we have cancelled this year's Walk Through Bethlehem event.  We hope to be back running again next year.  We will post a virtual walk in the coming weeks.

We will be livestreaming two times this
Sabbath, as follows:

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

- We will be broadcasting Sabbath Afternoon Study at 5:00pm. 

Select "Hillcrest Live Stream" in the menu at the left.

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.. Come and worship with us as we remember our Savior and learn of God. All are welcomed in God's house!

Live Stream Church Service

If you cannot be here with us, the next best thing is to watch on Live Stream.  Just select "Hillcrest 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.  Select "Recorded Sermons" from the menu, then select "Video" from the second menu.  You will see a scrollable menu showing the events available.
