At Hillcrest we believe prayer plays a vital part in our walk with Christ. The prayer focused ministries at Hillcrest offer the opportunity to encourage one another with intercessory prayer within our faith family.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is really good news, but only for those who realize the depth of the bad news. In part 2 of our new fall series from the book of Romans, Pastor Mark shares “The News We Don’t Want to Hear” from Romans 1:18-32.
The book of Romans is a timeless masterpiece which has shaped the course of history and provided a firm foundation for our faith. Today we kick-off our fall, 9-week sermon series, “The Glory of the Gospel,” delving into pages that have inspired revolutions, transformed lives, and continue to explain the wonders of salvation in Jesus. Prepare to be challenged by this first message from Pastor Mark, “I Am Not Ashamed” from Romans 1.
As we continue this morning to focus on God’s vision for Hillcrest, we consider an emphasis found throughout the Bible: God’s heart for the poor. What does Jesus mean when He says that He brings “good news to the poor,” and how do His words give direction to our church’s ministry and mission in the time and place God has placed us? Have your Bibles open to Luke 4:14-30 for Pastor Steve’s message “Good News to the Poor.”
