Welcome to Hillcrest Church! We were founded in 1950 in order to answer the call for a “progressive” church in the Pleasant Hill area. More than sixty years later we continue to answer that call.
Through Hillcrest’s many ministries and programs, the people of Hillcrest commit both individually and collectively to develop and nurture spiritual growth. We strive to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, to fulfill God’s vision for humankind and all of creation, and to share this vision with the wider community (from Hillcrest’s Mission Statement). You will learn something about who we are and about our worship, education, fellowship, and social service activities through this site. Feel free to contact us with your questions and comments. And come to worship and to participate. You will be blessed, and add a blessing to us.
Hillcrest is proud of its place in the Pleasant Hill and Contra Costa County communities and proud of its relationship with area churches, civic organizations, interfaith groups, and social service organizations. We are proud of our relationship with our national church body, the United Church of Christ (UCC), and it’s regional body, The Northern California Nevada Conference–UCC. We are proud of our social service ministries and the work they do, proud of our unique Eldering Minstries, proud of our Montessori-based “Godly Play” curriculum for kids, proud of our ministers, staff, and volunteers, and proud of our many ministries, programs, and worship opportunities. But mostly we are humbled—by the opportunity to answer God’s call for our lives and for mission and ministry within our community.
Together we serve. Together we grow. Together we impact our own lives, and those of the greater community and world.
Whoever you are, wherever you on life’s journey, you are welcome here…
