Make church happen
Worship is the work of people. And whether you are most comfortable reading scripture, praying, offering a warm hello or even (especially!) making coffee, there’s important work for you here. Consider volunteering once a month to help bring the Sunday service to vibrant life – we promise it will be a gift for you, for others and an opportunity to deepen your faith. Contact Kathy Pfister to learn more.
THE HILL WORSHIP BAND
The musicians at The Hill create a fresh expression of sacred, traditional music for Sunday worship services by arranging hymns and anthems for guitar, bass, piano and percussion. Contact Sam Hensley if you’d like to learn more or join in!
THE HILL PICK-UP CHOIR
Our Pick-up Choir performs every other Sunday. Singers receive the music in advance and practice morning-of to keep things simple. This is a small time commitment that delivers great joy – there’s a reason so many of our regular attendees have become Pick-Up Choir members! Contact Sam Hensley if you’d like to learn more or join in!
