Calendar Changes
Hillcrest Kids in conjunction with the Hillcrest leadership has decided to alter the schedule for Wednesday night programming for the rest of this year. Our desire is to offer families the opportunity to reduce their risk of exposure to COVID-19 before traveling anywhere for the holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

There will be no Hillcrest Kids programming (Sow, Grow or GO) (or Adult Bible Study) on Wednesday, November 18th, and November 25th. These ministries will resume on December 2nd, meet again on December 9th, and then take the rest of December off.

Inside Out will meet at the Seward Bowl this Wednesday, November 18th from 6:30-8 PM for their Annual Turkey Bowl. They will NOT meet on November 25th. They will resume December 2nd, meet again December 9th, and then take the rest of December off as well. 

Thank you for your understanding,
Brant Taylor
Pastor of Administration 

Inside Out
Wednesday | November 18 | 6:30 PM
This week we will be taking a break from our normal Inside Out programming. We will be meeting AT Seward Bowl for bowling from 6:30-8:30 PM. So, what do you need to know?


  1. All parents will be responsible for dropping off and picking up the same students from Seward Bowl at the end of the night as at the beginning.
  2. Students will need to bring $2.00 to bowl.  
  3. Students are required to wear a mask while inside Seward Bowl.
  4. We will have students use hand sanitizer upon entering Seward Bowl and when they leave to go home.
  5. Five people to each lane (we will have the whole place, so that should not be an issue)

Let Pastor Zach 763-325-7508 know if you have any questions!
