from the beginning

We, the community of Hillview United Methodist Church, acknowledge that the fullest, truest expression of what we believe about God is revealed in how we behave towards ourselves and others. 

We are learning how to better support one another in the work we feel called to do in Christ’s name – locally and globally. Such efforts include striving for peace and justice; protecting, sustaining and repairing the earth; bringing help and hope to those people who struggle; and other loving work.

To live the teachings of Jesus as we share God’s unconditional love.
