Mission Hills Church
The Promise of Peace | Getting From Good News to Great Joy
Jesus’ arrival in the manger came wrapped in a proclamation of peace. But during the hectic holiday season, experiencing that peace can seem just beyond our grasp — like the crooked star on top of the Christmas tree that we can’t quite reach to straighten out. This Christmas season we invite you to discover all the joy and hope that God makes possible as he extends to us his promise of peace.

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!
