On the Path of Jesus
This summer we will be showing pictures, telling stories, and diving into the world that Jesus walked through.
Join us as we look at what it means to follow Jesus on the path that he walked.
What if God made you with a purpose and plan? What if we knew what it meant to be made in God's image? What if we saw our local community as our mission field? Come explore the possibilities of a life on mission in Bellingham at our information evening for Foundations, a year long, life changing program to see God's heart for you and your community.
For more information email CFL@HCBellingham.com or check out our webpage at HCBellingham.com/CFL

Baptisms & Recommitment
On August 28th Hillcrest Church will be baptizing believers and anointing for recommitment.
If you have not been baptized, we encourage you to take this next step to public and physical identification with Jesus. If you have been baptized and want to recommit yourself to that journey, we are ready to help seal that decision with you.
Please contact email@example.com.
A way to have fun, get exercise, and create relationships.

Late this fall Hillcrest will be going through a sermon series titled “Water, Bread, Blood, and Fire.” The big idea of this series is that we want to look at these four key images and the way they thread through the biblical story.
We’re inviting everybody in the church to create and submit pieces of original artwork that reflect any one (or all four) of the themes of water, bread, blood, and fire.
Artwork is due October 24th, 2022. Click here for all the information you need to get started.

Whatcom World Relief - Back to School Drive
Refugee and immigrant kids face the unique challenges of adjusting to a new school system and educational expectations while also trying to reestablish a sense of community and rootedness in a new culture.
At World Relief Western Washington, our desire is to see children and families flourish and reach their fullest potential, despite the early obstacles they face upon immigrating.
Please partner with us to make going back to school a fun thing for these children! One of the most exciting parts of going back to school is back to school shopping. Getting to pick out all new school supplies, backpacks, lunch boxes, water bottles and new clothes!
If you would like to donated some of the items listed below for the World Relief “Back-to-School Shop,” where families can come with their children and pick out their own things please drop off your donations at the Hillcrest Office (write on the items that they are for World Relief) by Friday, August 5.
