Groups Within Children and Families
The children’s ministry of Hillside exists to participate with the coming of God’s Kingdom and to embrace the prominent place children have within it. We seek to do this by partnering with parents in the development of the spiritual formation of children and providing them with experiences of worship and study. Areas of ministry include Sunday morning classes, worship experiences, Club 56, Vacation Bible School, retreat programming, camping ministry, and holiday programs.
Family Fellowship is a ministry of Hillside Covenant dedicated to providing families with young children a fun, relaxed, and comfortable environment to socialize. Our events are scheduled for the evening of the first Friday of the month. Occasionally we will also offer events beyond our monthly gatherings. Our goal is to offer events that are kid and parent friendly. Babysitting is offered at most events to allow parents to socialize without interruption while other events are intended to be for the entire family.
