adult ministries

Adult Discipleship at Hillside is about creating environments that can help each person

discover three key truths that transformed His first followers into world changers.

  1. Discover God's story- along the way Jesus kept revealing truths about Himself and the Father to the disciples.
  2. Discover Your story- the disciples went through many learning experiences that showed them the truth about themselves that ultimately transformed them.
  3. Discover the Merger- after three years with Jesus, the disciples discovered how their lives fit into God's purposes for the world; it was electric!

    Ladies Class: Discerning the Voice of God

    Facilitator: Beth Center

    Location: M-14

    Become acquainted with the voice that has spoken from a fire and a cloud, with visible signs and an invisible spirit, through a burning bush and burning hearts. Hear from some of the most well known Christians in history about how God speaks to them, and discover for yourself how you can discern the voice of God.

    Topic Study: Christian History Made Easy

    Facilitator: Tim Peterson

    Location: M-16

    This is a 12 session DVD-based study of the most important events in Christian history from the time of the apostles to today. Through dramatic stories, this series brings to life the fascinating people and events that shaped our world. We will cover the early church, monasticism, medieval conflicts, the Protestant Reformation, the Great Awakening, 19th century missions, modernity, and postmodernism. We will examine spiritual lessons we can learn by looking at the past and see how God is still working in His church today.

    Topic Study: Study in Matthew

    Facilitators: Dave Neidig & Mike Stebner

    Location: Commons

    The Gospel of Matthew uniquely describes "the Kingdom of heaven" with five major discourses by Jesus. This verse-by-verse Bible class provides an understanding of the new covenant God created for Jewish and Gentile believers alike. Many current concerns of our time are addressed through Jesus' teaching and call to discipleship in this Gospel.

  • Men's ministry

    Our men's ministry is designed to see men connect with other men so spiritual growth can take place. So often we lose touch with friends once we are adults and so we run alone. Men who run alone, besides just being lonely, are forced to face all the challenges of life without a wingman. You can find a wingman by getting involved in some of the below opportunities this year!

    • Women's Sunday School Class
      Do you feel that the ability to hear God's voice is for other people and not you? Join the Women's Sunday School class as we work our way through Priscilla Shirer's video series, Discerning the Voice of God. Priscilla leads us through a study, showing us that the God who loved you enough to die for you, loves you enough to talk to you. We will hear about some of the most well-know Christians in history and how God spoke to them, and you can discover for yourself how you can discern the voice of God.

  • Open space

    Most of us are pretty good at making time to tell God what we think we need, but it can be harder to find time to slow down and listen for His still, small voice. Open Space is a time we reserve once a month to do just that. A brief time of worship and teaching set the stage and provide guidance for some one-on-one time between you and the Lord. All are welcome regardless of experience

  • Life Groups

    Jesus took his 12 closest followers on a three year journey as they lived life together. It was in that environments of shared life and teaching that reshaped their lives and prepared them for God's purposes. Our Life Groups (LGs) are designed to create the same kind of Biblical community that changes lives!

    LGs consist of 8 to 15 people who meet 2-4 times a month to live in authentic relationships where they encounter truth together, pray together, laugh and cry together, share responsibility, serve together and invite new people to join in. We have many LGs that meet throughout the week in different homes so you will find one that fits your schedule and your location.

  • Prayer

    Jesus modeled a life in communion with the Father. Jesus said "I only do what I see the father doing." It is in prayer that he saw what the father wanted to do so he could follow the will of his father in everything. Prayer is so much more than just the worded prayers we're familiar with, it's union and communion with God and we're growing in various prayer practices.

    • Sunday Prayer (8:15 am in M-13)
      Sunday Prayer is where we cry out to God for His Presence to be manifested in our services.
    • Open Space (1st Wednesday of the month at 7:00 pm)
      Open Space is a Worship & Prayer gathering focused on learning how to hear the voice of God and growing in confidence that it is God speaking. 
    • Prayer Team
      After each service, our Prayer Team is available to pray with those who want someone to come along side and lift them to the Father.
