Get Plugged In

It is our desire to see Hills View grow smaller as we grow larger by continually getting newcomers plugged in with small groups of believers in what we call "Life Groups," It is in these life groups that lasting friendships are developed - this is where you will truly experience the "community" aspect of Hills View E-Free Church.

A place where everybody knows your name!

At Hills View we want to provide the opportunity for people to get to know one another in close, personal relationships. That's why Hills View has several life groups. We want you to feel welcome by connecting people to others in meaningful, life-giving relationships. The only requirement for being in a life group is the desire to make new friends. The Hills View family is a friendly place and we encourage everyone to find a place to feel connected and to belong. The relationships you will build will be instrumental in your spiritual growth and progress as you ask questions, build friendships, receive prayer, and have fun. Big things happen in small groups.

Ultimately, the heart of the Life Group ministry is expressed in 1 Thessalonians 2:8:

“…we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.”


What happens at these meetings?
Basically, we do everything in our life group meetings that we do in our celebration services but in a more intimate, informal setting where we are free to be ourselves.

The primary emphasis of each meeting is to build relationships so that we can connect to people in caring Christian relationships. It is a place where we can share our need and struggles. It is also a place where trust is built as we get to know each other and develop relationships.
