10:30 a.m. Weekly Worship:
We gather for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. in the H.G. Hill Chapel. Because we value ritual and liturgical-based worship; services include components from the Presbyterian Book of Common Worship and the Directory for Worship: gathering in God’s name, hearing of Christ’s love, listening for the Word of God, responding to the Word, and going forth to serve. We follow the seasons of the church year — from Advent and Christmas through Lent, Easter, and Pentecost to All Saints’ Day and Christ the King Sunday. Scripture and preaching are central to our weekly worship of God, as is music. Children of all ages are welcomed and included in a Conversation with the Children during worship each week. Two sacraments are a part of our life together: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptisms of infants and adults occur during morning worship. The Lord’s Supper is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month.
WE WELCOME CHILDREN: Children worship with their parents, and there is a Conversation with the Children early in the service. Following this time on the second Sunday of the month, children may attend an interactive experience in Children’s Church where they learn, serve, and grow together. Nursery is available weekly for children under three years of age. Children’s bulletin and other activities are available in the narthex.
WE LOVE MUSIC: Music is an integral part of the worship life of Hillwood Presbyterian Church. Our adult Chancel Choir offers the gift of music throughout the year. A Bell Choir occasionally leads in worship as do a variety of guest musicians.
