It is with such great joy that we greet you in the strong and mighty name of our lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We want you to know that you belong here.  At Hill First, we are on the GROW in every aspect of our communal lives together. We are an all-affirming ministry who honors all of God’s creation and welcome everyone, in person and online, to lend their gifts to our church as we grow.


We believe that you don’t have to be a member to serve in any capacity of our ministry. We fully believe that if you come and see, you will want to stay and serve! We are looking forward to growing with you as you grow with God. We can’t wait for you to Experience Hill First!
