The Bible talks about Jesus as “a light shining in the darkness” (John 1:5). 

Light helps us to see things more clearly.

Sometimes there is darkness in our lives … illness, grief, a loss of hope ...

and the light of Jesus can help us to see through and beyond that darkness.

So … come and see!

Construction update

On Tuesday, April 3, Hillsdale First UMC began the construction process for our project to install an elevator which will make the facility more accessible to all.

Worship services will still continue each Sunday at 9:30 & 11:00 am in the sanctuary throughout the construction process.

The church office is closed during this part of construction. However, you can reach us by email or call the church office phone at 517-437-3681, leave a voicemail, and we can retrieve the message remotely and get back to you.

Some of the other areas of the church are also affected and inaccessible during construction. For more information about our construction project and photos of the progress, click here.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during the construction process, as we work to to improve our facility to better serve all people in the name of Christ.
