We wanted to bring you a brief update from our Elders on where we are with the events that have disrupted our lives this spring. There have been a lot of plans made, including phasing plans by the Governor and the Mayor, to give us some guidance on what our near-term future may be. Timing of those phases is still open, and we’re unsure when they will begin, so for the time being we will remain flexible and hopeful.
Our Elders will spend the month of May assessing all the information that we currently have and that we receive from our government officials and from others to try to determine how and when we may be able to transition back to using our building for in-person worship and other activities.
We ask that you continue to pray for Hillsboro, our Elders, and our ministry teams and for the work that’s still ongoing. We ask you to pray for our members who may be struggling through these unprecedented times. And we ask you to keep providing encouragement and assistance to our church family, your individual family, and your neighbors.
For the month of May, we will continue to operate as we have been these past weeks, providing live stream worship services and updates via email and social media. Thank you for your continued patience as we look toward the weeks ahead.

As we monitor the regulations determined by the spread of COVID-19, our Elders and ministry teams will continue to provide meaningful opportunities to connect through online gatherings and social media. For the foreseeable future, we plan to worship together online, as a church family, each Sunday at 10:00 am. We are very thankful for the community of Hillsboro, and we believe that God is able to use this unpredictable season of life as a way to strengthen the body of believers.
We understand that these moments can create a feeling of isolation, but we hope that you are able to reach out to others as you feel the desire for community. We encourage everyone to find time in your day to call, text, or simply write a letter to someone. We also encourage Bible classes, Life Groups and other age groups to digitally connect and catch up on life together. Until the CDC and local health officials have lifted the regulations on meeting together, our regular meeting times and building usage will remain closed until further notice. Thank you for your support of these decisions, and please continue to pray for our communities, our city, and the world to keep God first through this moment of time.
