What To Expect
What To Expect
We have an old saying here: “It’s like coming home.”
Hillsdale is an adorable church surrounding by one of the most beautiful settings in all of Indiana on the Kokomo Reservoir. The atmosphere is laid-back and everyone is welcome.
The music at Hillsdale is organic and authentic. Our piano-led music is a great mixture of your favorite hymns and worship songs. We are known as a congregation who sings loud and proud. If you have never been to a church where everyone is singing with gusto, it’s something you need to experience!
The goal of our sermons is to teach people how to love (as taught by Jesus) in order to make the world a better place. All teachings focus heavily on the teachings of Jesus being the ultimate way to be fully alive: because a life of love is the only way to truly live!
We have a great mix of millennials, boomers and the great generation. We have a huge range of talented people who attend Hillsdale including designers, photographers, nurses, farmers, administrators, business owners, bus drivers and plenty of children and retirees.
Wherever you are on your journey, you will feel welcome here!
What to Wear
The preacher-dude literally wears a t-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes. Others come looking a bit more classy.
Our motto: come as you are.
Activities for Children
- We encourage children to stay in the service for the singing, prayers and scripture reading.
- We have children’s time. It’s a short, kid-friendly lesson during the service. Kid’s get to choose from the candy basket after children’s time!
- Ages 0-4 are invited to the nursery after children’s time
- Ages 4+ are invited to Jr. Church to make a craft that relates to the teaching for the week.
- We strongly encourage middle school age and up to remain in the service 🙂
How We’re Different
Some churches have political agendas
Some churches do not welcome certain types of people
Some churches are full of fake people pretending to be saints
Some churches are all about money
Some churches are not okay with tough questions
Some churches are worried about numbers
Our goal is very simple: to learn love like Jesus loved in order to make the world a better place to live.
