Fusion (Large Group)

 Our 6th-8th grade students meet for large group two Sundays a month from 5:30-7:30 PM (see calendar below).  At large group we enjoy a time of intentional fellowship as we eat a meal together, play high-energy games, worship God, engage in biblical teaching, and discuss with one another in small groups our observations, questions and prayers.


Our middle school students frequently participate in service projects that serve our congregation, such as babysitting night and costume carnival. We serve the community as a whole through the BIG EVENT and we serve special need campers for a week in the summer.


 Our middle school students get to participate in special events that encourage friendships, families and community. Some events include: corn maze, game nights, sledding, swimming, area wide kick offs, family events (archery tag, golf, and more). We also have an end of the year Craig’s Cruisers or Rebounderz party. We also attend a weekend long winter retreat in the month of January.

Profession of Faith

Profession of faith mentoring and or discipleship is available for middle school students beginning in the months of September and January. Any student interested in making profession of faith will seek out an adult member from the Hillside community who will commit to mentoring them for 9 weeks. Both the mentor and student meet weekly and journey through the basics of the Reformed faith.

Any student is interested in discipleship will work with Kirk to find a mentor. They will agree upon how often and when they would like to meet.

For any and all questions concerning Profession of Faith please contact Kirk Kingsley at

What would you ask that person?
What do you think they'd probably reply?
How would that make you feel?
Why would you choose that person?

Insight into the Question:

These questions not only give you insight into your kid's heroes or crushes, they provide a peek into his feelings about this person.


If you could only text one person for the next year-someone you already text-who would you choose?
Why that person?
Who would you really miss texting during the year?

Each week I am going to post a conversation starter for you as parents.

Conversation Springboard: If you could eliminate one evil in the world, what would you destroy, and why?

Potential follow up questions:
Describe this new world
How would this change your typical day?
In reality, since we don't have the power to eliminate evil, what is something people could do that would help battle this evil?
What part could you play in this?

Insight into the question:
This question gets young people thinking about real-world problems and possible solutions.


What are some common evils you see every day?
What are some common good things you see people do?
Who is someone you know or observe who inspires others to do good?
How could you inspire others?
