Family Ministries

You are invited to come and meet our growing community.

Baseball practice. Laundry. Swim lessons. Lost Keys. Leaky faucet. Empty milk carton in the fridge. Busy doesn’t even begin to describe our lives! We know that it can be so hard to do it all – but here’s a secret – you don’t have to! Community. Connection. At Hillview UMC, we want to help you face the struggles of modern-day life in a loving and Christ-like manner. We believe a family connected to others and in community together will thrive no matter what challenges they face.

Invitation and Outreach

Many families are still struggling with isolation as they try to juggle all the needs of kids, work, and life. We offer opportunities to connect with a community of support. These aren’t always “church-y” activities – just a way to reach out and develop connections with other families dealing with the same life stuff.
