We have a variety of gifted musicians along with our worship leader who lead us in musical worship each Sunday. Special music including solos and ensembles are used to enhance our worship services throughout the year. We encourage others to share their artistic gifts with the worship leader in order to integrate various talents in our worship ministry. We believe that the creative arts reflect the creative nature of God and should be valued in communal gatherings.
Our audio-video ministry consists of volunteers who serve to operate the sound board and the computer/lyrics and videos for our Sunday worship services. Those with artistic talents are called to share their gifts by creating banners and sanctuary decorations. Our ushers assist with seating, distributing bulletins, and collecting tithes and offerings. These are important ministries which contribute greatly to our worship, and anyone interested in these areas are encouraged to serve.
In partnership with Love, INC, we provide and deliver kitchen items to families who are in need. We are always taking donations to refill our inventory. If you would like to donate to this worthy cause, we are usually in need of microwaves, pots and pans, casserole dishes, silverware, serving bowls, and bake ware. Your donations can be dropped at the church during office hours or you can leave your items at the north door.

Feed My Starving Children
Hillcrest is still excited about the outcome of the sixth annual event of Feed My Starving Children/Make a Difference DKC. We were honored to be part of packing over 1 million meals! The 4,000 volunteers from throughout DeKalb County, who came together and worked in two-hour shifts, packed 1,029,240 meals -- amazing! This fun and worthwhile event will happen again in November 2016, at The Suter Company, 1015 West Bethany Road, Sycamore.
Want to join us? We'd love to have you participate!
You can volunteer your time or donate your gifts so others can be packing hope.
