LifePath describes one’s life-long journey of following Jesus. To be a disciple is to be a follower. LifePath uses the teaching model to orient people to live obediently to God’s word. And in the process, we experience God’s presence. And we learn what it is to share life with Him.
“Fresh Start” is an 8 session study in God’s Word to initiate your relationship with the Lord and understand this new way of living.
Pick up a booklet at the information booth.
“First Steps” is an 5 week orientation to this journey called “discipleship.” In First Steps you will discover how much Jesus really loves you
and how He wants to share life with you – today and everyday for eternity. It takes a look at the power of receiving God’s complete
forgiveness and the freedom the results from a life that is lived in God’s grace. You’ll learn how to overcome the shame that paralyzes
one’s life. And you’ll discover a new identity that is found not in your performance or achievements, but one that is yours now
that you are “in” Christ. Check the church calendar for the next session.
We’re excited to have you consider Hills Church as the place you want to belong. Our Connections Class is the place to go to hear our story, what God is doing in and thru Hills, as well as an opportunity to get to know you and your story. After this class we believe you’ll understand how God has placed you here see how you fit at Hills. Please allow for 3 hours. If you would like to be contacted about the next Connections Class, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WOMEN’S MINISTRY | R.E.A.L. WOMEN
Lucy and Ethel, Laverne and Shirley, Rachel and Monica are a few of popular television friendship icons. Many women desire to have relationships that these women portray. Most women have friends, but they do not have “real”ationships; other women with whom one can truly be “real” with and still feel accepted by them. The women’s ministry here at Hills encourages women to become exactly who God created them to be through real-ationships. R.E.A.L. stands for:
- Respectful – Show respect to everyone | 1 Peter 2:17
- Encouraging – Encourage one anther and build each other up. | 1 Thessalonians 5:11
- Accountable – As iron sharpens iron so (woman) sharpens another. | Proverbs 27:17
- Loving – Love deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. | 1 Peter 4:8
These are the building blocks to authentic Christ-centered friendships. The greatest bond in a real-ationship is Jesus. Jesus desires to have a relationship with us and ultimately our goal is to be a reflection of him. As we share our lives with others, our relationship with Jesus grows deeper. R.E.A.L. Women have quarterly gatherings along with weekly Life Groups. Check the church calendar for the current activities.
Hills’ Men’s Ministry is committed to helping men live authentic, God honoring lives. Through retreats, quarterly gatherings, and Life Groups, men are challenged, encouraged, and resourced to follow Jesus with faith and obedience. Check the church calendar for the current activities.
Hills Church is committed to reaching to touch the world with the good news of God’s love through Jesus Christ. Here’s some of the ways we participate in expanding God’s Kingdom, globally, nationally, and locally.

They started the initiative “Serve The City – Galway,” partnering with local homeless shelters, refugee centers, orphanages, serving in areas within the community that previously have not been open to Christians.

Tree of Life ‘84 | Esteli, Nicaragua
After being abandoned to die as an infant, Mauricio was rescued from death and began living in the confidence that he is alive for a purpose. He has returned to Nicaragua, even to the very property where he was born, to build a home that would rescue, nurture, disciple, and train teen moms during their pregnancies and provide after care for them and their children. In this way, these overlooked and abandoned people find hope and discover their identity in Christ.
