At Hillside, we offer a chance for you to “join” our church without giving up your membership at your home church. This is a tradition within Baptist churches, and it serves those who plan on returning to their home church within a short time but still want to claim themselves as a part of this church family. For this reason, WatchCare membership is perfect for college students.
Upon joining by WatchCare we will assign you a family that will be your adopted family while you are in college. Your WatchCare family will pray for you, offer you a home away from home, and share meals with you regularly.
Please note that joining by WatchCare does not enable you to vote regarding church matters or serve on any of the leadership teams (Elder or Deacon). We believe that if God calls you to be an active part of a church family you should also accept the call to serve within that church family as a full member (for more on this, see the Become a Member page).
If you are interested in learning more about the WatchCare program, please contact our church office.
