Hillside plans youth, children’s programs

Hillside Assembly of God Church in Gillett will begin a new year of youth and children’s programs on Wednesday evenings beginning Sept. 5, kicking off with an open house at 6 p.m. Prizes, hot dogs and ice cream will be provided.

Royal Rangers is a boys’ program for ages 3-14. Boys learn practical lessons from the Bible with a variety of themes, including camping, sports, lifesaving and first aid. This program has transitioned into a new expanded program with more themes and opportunities to grow.

Mpact Girls Club is for girls of the same age group and teaches practical lessons from the Bible with various themes that girls can relate to including making the right choices, fitness, attitude, peer pressure, family, accountability and self esteem. There are also fun activities with each lesson. Both groups can earn rewards and have opportunities for extra curricular activities.

The Hillside youth group Ignite Student Ministries also meets on Wednesday nights and includes an opportunity to make new friends, hear practical messages from the Bible, sing Contemporary Christian music with the youth band and just have fun with other teens. Again this year is a group just for middle schoolers featuring interactive discussion and high energy activities.

For adults, there is a Bible study for adults called “Understanding Difficult Passages In The Bible.” Men and women will be a combined class.

These Wednesday activities meet from 6:45-8 p.m. starting on Sept. 12. Visitors are welcome. Transportation from Pulcifer and Cecil can be arranged by calling the church office at 920-855-2962. The church is located at 5890 Highway 22, Gillett. For information or to register, go to www.HillsideAssembly.com.
