Update on COVID-19(Coronavirus)

Updated: Jun 15

Up to date as of 6/15/2020 1:37AM

Out of an abundance of caution in response to the COVID-19 virus, also known as coronavirus, Hillcrest will be Meeting in our North parking lot as well as running a virtual service until further notice. For the safety of our members and our guests, we feel it is prudent not to meet in the church building for the time being. So join us Sundays for our outdoor services or catch Hillcrest streaming its services at 10:00am on Sundays on both Facebook and YouTube. We firmly believe that this will allow us to continue to minister to one another while working with guidelines to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Directions on how to watch Hillcrest's services online:

To access the virtual service via Facebook (only recommended for users with an existing Facebook account - see YouTube directions if needed):

1. Go to www.facebook.com/hillcrestchurchma using your Facebook account.

2. Look for the pinned post at the top of the page.

3. Click on the video stream and watch!

Helpful hints for streaming:

Be sure your video is unmuted (click the rightmost icon), and that is expanded to fit your whole screen, if desired (second from right icon). Lower the video quality (fourth from right) if you are having issues withe video playing smoothly.

To access the virtual service via YouTube, go to https://youtu.be/d6Hu7fdjgUc or find us by searching "Hillcrest Church MA" on your device and selecting the video that is "LIVE"

Be sure to comment and participate using the chat!

Helpful hints for streaming:

Be sure your video is unmuted (third icon from left), that is expanded your whole screen (rightmost icon), or adjust the video quality (set this lower if the video isn't playing smoothly, fourth icon from the right).

Above all, we know that the Lord watches over us. Moving our services to a virtual environment is a major adjustment, but we encourage you to sit up at your computer, TV, or phone, bring your Bible and worship together with us even if we aren't physically together. This is unprecedented for us, but not for Him.

See you all in the morning! Use that comment box to tell your brothers and sisters in Christ that you're happy to see them and to pray, praise, and worship with us.
