Welcome 


At Hillsdale our purpose is to preach and teach the Word of God, to provide a place for worship, fellowship, and support, as we connect our hearts with God, to grow to become more like Christ and be equipped to serve and share His love to our world.

It is our prayer that you find our fellowship warm and friendly and the messages meaningful and practical so that you will discover all that God has made you to be, that you might worship and serve Him. We know you will find our family fellowship caring and supportive and that here you can build lasting relationships.

A Message From Your Pastor

A new preaching series called, "Exploding the Myths that Make Us Miserable." will be our focus over the next couple of months.

There are many harmful myths that we've been taught by the world and those myths have robbed us of happiness and emotional well-being.  As we go through this series over the next two months, we will be examining some of these cultural myths and false beliefs that are prevalent today and we'll "explode" them with the power of God's truth.

I hope you'll join us in person (or online) this Sunday @ 10:45 am as we begin this new series with an introductory message I'm calling, "Why Truth Matters."

 
I am praying for each of you to begin again assembling together for worship, instruction, and teaching in the Word of God for encouragement and growth in faith for your spiritual walk with God. I can't emphasize enough the importance of our assembly together as a family of God.
 
"So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind." Philippians 2:1

"not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." Hebrews 10:25

In His Service,
Pastor Jim

Jesus, Teach Us To Pray

by Debbie Fredrickson
Ministry of Encouragement and Faith

 

PART 6: Jesus, Teach Us to Pray
 
WORSHIP IN SPIRIT & TRUTH
(Jesus Speaking) "The hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him." John 4:23 ESV
 
Jesus' ministry on earth was motivated by God's desire to bring one's faith back from formalistic rituals, rules, and posturings to a faith that is from within, from a heart of love for God; because of who He is and gratitude for all He's done. Jesus knew His ministry's end would come and the hour the Holy Spirit's work will flourish in the hearts of all believers.
 
The work of the Holy Spirit is a powerful thing.
 
It is by the regeneration of the Spirit that we are united with Christ and in God as true believers and called the Children of God. (Jesus Speaking) "But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:12-13 ESV As True believers our lives produce good fruit through the Holy Spirit and that includes worshiping in spirit and in truth.
 
"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people." Ephesians 6:18 ESV
 
PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT
As we pray and meditate on God, the Holy Spirit enlightens our heart and mind to all who God is, His splendor and awesome power. He helps us to rejoice and give thanks to God and to see all that God wants for us in Jesus. He also prays for us when our hearts are so heavy we can not speak.
 
"And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will." Romans 8:26-27 ESV
 
The disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. They experienced in awe, the mystery which resulted from Jesus' communion with God. They desired such communion. Our heart's desire should also be the same; to experience the awesome power of the Holy Spirit interceding with us to produce the will of God for His Kingdom Purpose.

"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 ESV
 
PURPOSEFUL PRAYING
Purposeful praying begins with the Word of God. As we meditate on God's Word and experience His truth and get to know Him better and better we learn to pray according to His will. It is God's desire that we pray in the Spirit who leads us to understand what His will is. As we pray with all kinds of prayers and requests, on all occasions we also remember to pray for all the Lord's people. Jesus prays that we are to one even as He and the Father are one, and by this, the world may believe... And by our LOVE we will be known as HIS.
 
Our most gracious, merciful, and loving Heavenly Father. Thank you for being our great and mighty God. Our Lord and Savior, who rescued us from the disobedience that separated us from you and your divine will for our lives. I pray that you would stir up our hearts to love you more and be in you more as we allow you to mold and shape our heart and will to desire to please you for your good purpose. Thank you for the security of your love and faithfulness to guard us against those things that draw us away from your presence. Help us to constantly be aware of your presence, motivation, and leading to do those good things you planned for us long ago. Continue to build us up in unity as the people of God, having the same mind and purpose to build one another up in love and maturity in all the fullness of the standards of God. Praying for one another and being and doing all that You have commanded in Your Word - Amen
