Hello, Hillsdale family.  I pray that you're all doing well and protecting your health during this COVID-19 pandemic.  I'm still missing all of you terribly.  I can hardly wait until we are able to meet again in person.  God willing that will be soon.

Prayer  Let me encourage you to gather with your family to pray for a great healing across our land.  Pray for a healing of relationships, families, churches, and racial, cultural, and political division.  Pray for a national healing from the coronavirus that is profound and visible.  Pray that God will heal us in such ways that only He could receive the glory, that even political, media, and healthcare leaders would recognize that it was the hand of God that healed our land.

You can do so by joining our Family Prayer & Devotion Gathering online each Wednesday at 6:30 pm. We enjoy sharing with each other, praying and participating in a short devotional time. It's only one hour but it is worth much more to the ministry of this church and the work of His Kingdom.

Worship  Don't forget Sundays at 10:45 am on Zoom. We would love to see all your lovely faces. Weekly sermons are uploaded to our website at www.hillsdalechurch.com, either as a video or an audio recording on Mondays.  Keep reaching out to one another by phone during this time.  Please let me know of any situations that I should know about. 

I love you all.
Pastor Jim

How to Pray for Yourselves, Our Nation and the World

Psalm 103:1-5 Pray for the Sick &
Protection or our Healthcare Workers    
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Philippians 4:6-7;19 Pray for the Vulnerable & Unemployed     Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus... And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
Psalm 3:5-8 Pray for Wisdom for our Government & Leaders  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.

Colossians 1:9-11 Pray for Students & Families  We have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy...

Colossians 1:25-29 Pray for our Church Leaders
God has given me the responsibility of serving his church by proclaiming his entire message to you.This message was kept secret for centuries and generations past, but now it has been revealed to God’s people. For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.  So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect in their relationship to Christ.That’s why I work and struggle so hard, depending on Christ’s mighty power that works within me.

Give With Gratitude

A life of generosity is the out pouring of our love and gratefulness to God that rests on His faithfulness to His promises, to fulfill His divine plan and purpose for our lives and His Kingdom Purpose.

You can become a contributor towards God's Kingdom Purpose by making contributions to the ongoing work of the church through your tithes and offerings.

2) you may make a drop-off visit during our regular business hours.

Secret Sisters, R.E.A.L. WOMEN

Shh Lips Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | ShutterstockSssshhhhh!  It’s a secret!  Ladies, are you participating in the R.E.A.L. Women’s Ministry Secret Sisters?  If you are, you should have already received information on your Secret Sister.  It is very important right now, during this time of isolation, to let your sister know that they are not alone and that you are praying for them.  You can mail them a card – use the church address as the return address if you don’t want to give away your identity.  If you have a gift for your secret sister, the church office can “forward” it to her.  Just call to make sure someone is in the office before you come by to drop it off.  Call Sheila Ashburn at 916-205-2370, if you have questions about the R.E.A.L. Women’s Ministry.


The R.E.A.L. Women’s Ministry supports the women of Hillsdale Blvd. Baptist Church with fellowship, caring, and acceptance.  R.E.A.L. stands for “Relationships, Encouragement, Accountability, and Laughter”.

The Magnet of a Thankful Heart

During a time of devastation and distress, the prophet Jeremiah wrote these words: This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope.  The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness (Lamentations 3:21-23). This is a indeed a challenging time for all of us.  But like Jeremiah, we have reason for hope.  Are you seeing God’s goodness and faithful to you?  ...Read More

What Makes a Great Team (Part 1) by Rick Warren
Every church needs a strong volunteer team. You can’t afford to hire enough staff to do all God wants you to do in your
community. More importantly, one of the purposes of your church “is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church” (Ephesians 4:12 NLT). Part of equipping your volunteers to serve the church is developing them into an effective team...
