Hillside Missionary Church - 10/11/20 Service

Whether you’re a guest or a long-time attendee we’re glad you’re here with us. Hillside is a friendly and caring group of Christians who are here to help people be CONNECTED with Jesus, CHANGED by Jesus, and COMMITTED to the mission of Jesus. GUESTS: Thanks for joining us today! We truly believe that you’re not here by accident and that God has some amazing plans for your life. If you feel comfortable doing so, feel free to text pastor Josh at 574.903.7578 and let him know you are participating with us. We’d love to get you connected with us and let you know more about who we are! SERMON SERIES: Our sermon series is going through the book of 1 Timothy and is entitled, “Fixated.” Today’s message, from chapter 6, answers the question, “How do I Keep Going on When I’m So Tired?” CONNECT: We’d love for you to connect with us online! During this time of social distancing we have added an online version of every week’s service. You can find them on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and on our website, hmcworship.com. In addition to that, we encourage you to continue to reach out to your church family through letters, texts, phone calls, and on social media.

Friday 8:00 AM

In this passage of God’s Word, Paul encourages Timothy to keep on doing what God has called him to do. When we’re in the same situation as Timothy and don’t think we can accomplish what God has called us to do, we can also be encouraged by Paul’s words to Timothy and learn how to keep on keeping on by:

1. Realize how God sees you
1 Tim. 6:11a, 2 Tim. 3:16-17, Gal. 3:26, Eph. 2:10

2. Remember your calling
1 Tim. 6:11b-12, Phil. 3:14, 1 Cor. 1:28-29, 2 Tim. 1:9

3. Guard your faith
1 Tim. 6:13-21, 4:7, John, 2:15-17, 1 John 18:37-38
Reflection Questions

1. After taking a look at Paul’s final encouragement to Timothy in this letter, what stands out to you the most?

2. Do you feel like in this season of your life, it is difficult to continue to grow in your faith? Why or why not?

3. Do you ever have a difficult time remembering how God sees you? What causes that?

4. Do you ever have a difficult time remembering what God has called you to do? What causes that?

5. What practical step(s) can you take to continue to grow in your faith and to protect your faith? Who will keep you accountable to accomplishing that?

We have complied an “online-friendly,” updated version of our directory. In order to protect people’s information, we are not posting it online, though.

In-Person Service Update

We are now meeting in our gym instead of our sanctuary to provide enough space for social distancing. In accordance with the guidance from our local officials, when you are not seated 6 or more feet away from those outside your household, we ask that those 8 years old and older wear a mask. While you are seated at least 6 feet away from those outside your household, you are welcome to remove your mask. No offering plates will be passed; instead we ask you to give online or via the giving box near the gym entrance. Tables are set up in the back row of the gym, so that families with young children can enjoy our kids’ bulletins and activities that correspond with today’s message. We also kindly ask you to use the restroom before you come, to ensure that our restrooms are as clean as possible for those who need to use them. Thank you for your continual faithfulness and flexibility during these times.
