The Hillsdale United Methodist Church is a faith community,

and do God's will, by following Jesus Christ.
These are the new songs added to our Sunday morning worship

Special Collection - Sunday Worship, July 27th
Lisa, a former member of Hillsdale UMC, is also a 38 year old woman living with an oligodendroglioma. She was first diagnosed when she was pregnant with her son 7 years ago. She has had three successful surgeries to remove the tumor. She is so thankful that she was able to lead a normal life, work full time as a classroom teacher, run, and raise money for charities through local 5K's and half marathons. Recently, however, she had a relapse and the tumor has moved into her brain stem. It affects her balance and her ability to move fluidly. Her doctor put her on a new treatment plan because the tumor is inoperable due to the location.
Please, keep Lisa in your prayers. Lisa is unable to work or drive. Her friends have started an online fundraiser to help Lisa with living and childcare expenses while she focuses on her recovery.
Hillsdale UMC will be taking a special collection during worship service on Sunday, July 27th, to make a single church-wide donation to www.gofundme.com/for-lisa
If you wish to donate through this special collection, please note “Help Lisa Duran” on your envelope, check, or e-giving. Or visit www.gofundme.com/for-lisa if you'd like to donate directly. Contact Lisa Schoelles for more information. Thank you for your prayers and generosity.
If you read "The Open Door" online - take the pledge to go paperless, and click here to send the church office to be removed from the postal mail list. This will help our church save time and money, and it's environmentally friendly - a Methodist Social Principle we all hold dear. Thanks!
