Mission Hills Church
A Weary World Rejoices | Waiting Well
It’s been a long year and we’re all tired of a lot of things. Weary, even. But, sometimes, it can help to remember that most of what we’re facing has been faced by people in the past, too. In fact, in the historical accounts of Jesus’ birth, we find joy breaking into a world much like ours, weary from political unrest, social injustice and even disease. Join us as we find fresh insight, hope and joy this Christmas!

Mission Hills is a church family—a family who wants to extend to you the same love, hope, and joy that we have received. We know that we cannot be all things to all people. But we do want to be one thing to all people. We want to be the place where anyone, of any age, of any level of spiritual maturity, of any economic class, of any ethnicity, of any church background—or no church background—can meet God in a way that transforms their life…forever!

If you are a first time guest, we would love to meet you! Stop by the Welcome Center for a free gift.
One of the greatest obstacles to our ability to rejoice is our inability to wait well.
// "I have told you these things so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. (Jn. 15:11).
// "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." (Jn. 16:33)
Joy isn’t pleasure because of pleasant circumstances, joy is peace even in unpleasant ones because we're waiting on God's promises.
