The 8:30 service at Hillsdale United Methodist Church welcomes all who wish to participate in a more informal worship experience. Held in the Peterson Room, the hour long program includes lay leadership, caring and sharing, prayer, scripture, music, a sermon and an opportunity to discuss the sermon. The interactive nature of the worship service helps build close friendships and allows for a rich variety of worship experiences. Come and join us in this more informal setting as we worship and explore our faith together.
This is traditional worship service held in the Sanctuary. The service includes lively congregational singing, scripture readings, prayers and sermon. At times, we have have Hand Bell Choir and scripture dramatization by Sunday School Children.
So, if you are Tongan, this service is in your language. The format is the traditional, formal Tongan service replete with the terrific Tongan Choir and Preachers from the Tongan community. If you are not Tongan -- we do offer a translation capability through our audio/headphones. So if you would like to experience a very formal, but sincerely spiritual service, followed by a terrific feast.... you are warmly invited!
