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.

I give you thanks, O LORD, with all my heart; I will sing your praises before the gods.

    I bow before your holy Temple as I worship.

        I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness;

your promises are backed by all the honor of your name. Psalm 138:1-3 (NLT)


What an awesome and marvelous God we have. His name is ruled with honor, for His name is the name above all names. His faithfulness in beyond measure as is His great love for us - the King of our heart.

Who is this mighty God of ours? How shall we respond to our Creator, the Lord of Glory?

MY GOD, AN EVERLASTING GOD Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. Psalm 90:2 (ESV)
          I give you thanks, O LORD.

HOW UNSEARCHABLE IS MY GOD Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are your judgments and how inscrutable your ways! Romans 11:33  (ESV)
          I give you thanks, O LORD.

MY GREAT GOD, BEYOND MEASURE Great are you Lord, and abundant in power;your understanding is beyond measure. Psalm 147:5 (ESV)
           I give you thanks, O LORD.

MY CREATOR, WHO NEVER GROWS WEARY Have you not known? Have you not heard? My LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives me power when faint, and when I have no might he increases my strength. Isaiah 40: 28-29 (ESV)
          I give you thanks, O LORD.

MY GOD, RICH IN MERCY BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT LOVE FOR ME God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved me, Ephesians 2: 4 (ESV)
          I give you thanks, O LORD.

MY HOLY, GOD “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of your glory!” Isaiah 6: 3 (ESV)
          I give you thanks, O LORD.

Church Office Visitor COVID-19 Procedures 
To meet the Sacramento County Health Department requirements, we have started new procedures for visitors to the church office.  Visitors will:

  • Sign in and out on the Visitor Log near the door to document their visit and provide contact information. 
  • Self-certify that they do not have a fever nor COVID-19 symptoms.  
  • Wear a mask during their entire visit.
  • Sanitize their hands upon entry.
  • Maintain social distancing (6 feet) between staff and other visitors not part of their household.
  • Staff will wear a mask when the office has visitors. 

PLEASE!  Do not visit if you are not feeling well!  


Hello, Hillsdale Family! I pray that you all are doing well and staying healthy in these (seemingly endless) days of COVID-19.  As we approach Thanksgiving 2020, it may be a bit harder this year to find a reason to give thanks.  But none of these distressing reasons have taken God by surprise or confound Him.  They may be unprecedented to us, but not to Him.  He even knows why these things are happening.

It seems that God is using 2020 as a year of growth.  He is strengthening our character.  He is strengthening our faith.  He is strengthening our commitment.  And, most of all, He is strengthening our patience.  I am convinced that God has an incredibly good reason for all the things that He has allowed to happen in 2020, because I have experienced his good reasons many times in the past.

So, let us be thankful this Thanksgiving that God is still in control.  Regardless of these earthly trials, God still “controls the course of world events; He removes kings and set up other kings.” (Daniel 2:21)  Let us never lose sight of the sovereignty of our God whose “greatness no one can fathom”.  (Psalms 145:3)

I hope you join us for the Lord’s Supper this Sunday.   Have a joyful and blessed Thanksgiving! 

Pastor Jim
