Here at Hillcrest, missions is not just something we talk about, it’s something we do. Jesus has asked each of us to “go” and live out the Good News of the Kingdom, the Good News that God loves all people, the Good News that there is a better life with Him than apart from him, the Good News that there is help in times of trouble. We do not believe that we are only to give financially to some mission or missionary and check off our list that we have done our part in missions. We realize we are all to “go”. We go by serving with, praying for and getting to know the people our missionaries and mission organizations serve. We encourage all Hillcresters to get involved and missions are one way to make a huge difference.
Hillcrest supports these Mission Organizations financially throughout the year. One month of the year, we focus on one of these missions by educating our congregation about the organization, volunteering our time to help, and/or collecting additional donations.
The Reveal (A Brief History)
On September 30th, 2007, Hillcrest revealed several initiatives designed for Hillcresters to communicate the practical love of Jesus to the Sioux Falls Community. As each new year begins, the Reveal continues, as we celebrate the goals we have met and continue to strive for those not yet realized. Funds for The Reveal are separate from Hillcrest’s budget. The monies came from Hillcrest’s sale of land in 2008 and were committed to being given away to local and global missions.
