Care for Hillside If you would be willing to volunteer from time to time for small projects around the church (things like painting, cleaning, minor repairs, simple building projects), then contact Michele in the church office at email@example.com.
Kitchen Crew If you enjoy serving in the kitchen from time to time, contact Michele Miller and look into joining one of our teams that volunteer to prepare meals for various occasions.Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Care Partners Trained volunteers are paired one-on-one with individuals who are going through a particularly difficult season, whether it is due to job loss, divorce, the death of a loved one, or some other stressful time. They meet together weekly for support and prayer. For information on getting a Care Partner or to explore volunteering in this ministry, contact Pastor Jane DeYoung at email@example.com.
Meals Ministry: Throughout the year many in our church family experience difficult times. One of the best ways to let them know they are not alone is to bring them a meal. If you would love to be part of this ministry by providing a meal occasionally, please contact Mary Matas at firstname.lastname@example.org or (925) 222-0028.
Loving childcare providers needed!: Hillside seeks caring individuals to work with infants through 5 year old children for our Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) program. MOPS meetings are the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Thursdays of every month, 8:45-11:45 a.m. Pay rate: $12/hr. Job starts immediately. Contact Louise Owenby Gilman: email@example.com or(925) 937-3066.
Serve Our Kids Downstairs: We need your help in Children’s Ministries on Sundays! Are you available once a month? Would you enjoy holding an adorable infant in the nursery? Or perhaps you’d enjoy acting out Bible stories for our little ones? If so, please look for the large sign-up charts in the narthex and downstairs and jot your name down! We love our children and we want them to receive the best care we can offer! Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Projectionists Needed: We’re looking for people to help once a month in this behind-the-scenes ministry area. Training available. Contact Michele in the church office if you’re interested.
Buddies Needed: Please consider helping once a month to make Sunday School more accessible for some of our students. Adult and youth (high school/middle school) welcome. Training available. Contact Lee Ann Williams: 899-5042 or email@example.com
Greeters: When someone comes to our home we greet them at the door with a smile and a handshake, we want them to know they are welcome and we are glad they have come. Our greeters on Sunday mornings feel the same way about welcoming our family and friends to Hillside. If someone is new they are there to answer questions and guide people to finding their way around. We’re looking for people to staff the front & side doors at the 9:30 & 11:00 services. They’ll arrive 15 min. before the service and stay at the doors for 5 min. into the service. We are also looking for a team leader to help coordinate this important ministry. Would you like to be a welcoming presence on Sundays? Contact Steve Westfall (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Contra Costa Interfaith Coalition: Generous people at Hillside made 5 children and their families experience the love of Christ this Christmas. The children each received either a jacket or new pajamas and a toy. The families received a food card. Thank you to those who participated. CCIC continues to receive many items donated by Hillside families to help people who are transitioning from homelessness into housing and jobs. We accept baby and toddler clothes, small furniture, twin and queen-size only bedding, bakeware, and small kitchen items.
