Why The Spirit

Most of us have at least a basic understanding of who God the Father is and who Jesus is, but what about the Holy Spirit? In part 9 of our Jesus Is… series, Pastor Jon takes us to John 16 where Jesus introduces his disciples, and us, to the Holy Spirit. Take a moment to prepare to discover something new about the Spirit’s place and importance in our lives.


Jesus’ birth brought light to a dark world over 2000 years ago, and His light continues to illuminate darkness today. This morning Pastor Jon guides us in discovering what Jesus’ light revealed and how we can reflect His light to others. Have your Bibles open to John 1:14-18 for today’s message “BAM!” part 4 in our Christmas Illuminate series.

You Didn’t Earn It

We’re all used to a paycheck reflecting the work we provide for our employer or clients, but God’s economy runs completely contrary to the familiar work-reward system. Today Pastor Jon brings us good news about God’s economy from Romans 4 in his message “You Didn’t Earn It,” Part 4 in our series from Paul’s letter to the Romans.

Back on Track

Coming back from loss, embarrassment, or disappointment can be an uphill climb, but God hasn’t left us alone and wants to create something beautiful from our messy lives. As we turn to Joshua 8 with Pastor Jon today, we’ll learn how we can get “Back on Track” and move forward again in Part 6 of our Strong and Courageous summer series.

Keeping Us from the Father

While many recognize and honor their father on Father’s Day, many others struggle with the baggage left for them by absent fathers. Today Pastor Jon turns to Romans 8 in the message, “Keeping Us from the Father.” As we conclude the Family Baggage series, be encouraged and challenged from God’s Word.

Gifted and Called

What’s Your Purpose at Hillcrest? Every part of our physical body has a purpose, and every person at Hillcrest has a purpose. Do you know where you fit in? In today’s message, Pastor Jon challenges us to think about that question in the first of two messages in our short series The High Call of Serving. Turn in your Bible to Romans 12:3-16 and get ready to uncover how you are“Gifted and Called.”


Welcome to Hillcrest! Our Characters of Christmas series comes to a close today as we encounter Simeon, a godly, old man who was overjoyed after hearing the new of the Jesus’ birth! Jon Meyer, Pastor of Family Ministry (Children) shares today’s message from Luke 2.

Mary & Joseph

If you’ve grown up attending services at Christmas, you’ve may think there’s nothing new to glean from the story of Mary and Joseph and their journey to Bethlehem. Today Pastor Jon takes a fresh look at this engaged couple who were dealing with a “crisis pregnancy” for the ages! As we do, we’ll gain encouragement for our life’s journey and how Jesus can be at the center of it all. Have your Bibles open to Luke 1 for Part 2…

Free and Ready

When God sent the tenth and final plague to Egypt, only one thing mattered and that one thing foreshadowed is what still matters today. This morning we welcome Jon Meyer back to the pulpit to open God’s word to Exodus 12 for week 8 of our Exodus series “Free and Ready.” We also welcome Jon as the newest member of our pastoral staff serving us part-time as Associate Pastor of Family Ministry for Children.

When Storms Come

When the weather forecasters tell us that a big storm is heading our way, we know how to prepare; but the storms of life often come without warning and can leave us feeling beaten down and discouraged. Today Jon Meyer takes us to Acts 27 in Week 14 of our Forward series where we’ll learn from Paul’s life how to stay anchored “When Storms Come.” We will observe communion following the message.

Encouraged to Move Forward

Are you feeling discouraged, rejected, stuck, lonely, rejected? Find encouragement from the apostle Paul as Jon Meyer takes us to Acts 16 with his message “Encouraged to Move Forward,” Part 6 in our Forward series. Communion will be observed during the service today, so please have your elements prepared to join in this special time of remembrance and worship.

He Knows How You Feel

Welcome! We’re extending our Christmas celebration into one more Sunday. We’ll enjoy more music of the season, and Jon Meyer wraps up Welcome to Our World with Part 5, “He Knows How You Feel” from Hebrews 2:14-18.
