Hillside Park Baptist has implemented numerous opportunities for our youth.
A newly renovated and updated nursery is available during services for infants to two year olds. Nursery volunteers are there to care for your children.
Every Sunday, children's church is provided during the worship service for ages three to five. Students are dismissed from the sanctuary for this class.
Wednesday nights a 7:00 pm, we offer exciting youth classes for ages three through senior high. The truths of the Bible are taught at age appropriate levels using KJV curriculum and resources.
Once a month, we have Wacky/Witnessing Wednesday. During this time our whole group comes together for a special night beginning with a devotion. Wacky Wednesdays have included: playing in a snowball tournament, enjoying a hot chocolate bar, Christmas caroling at nursing homes, and observing the FaithForce strongman group. Witnessing Wednesdays have consisted of: making Valentine's for our church attendees, constructing Valentine's to pass out inviting people to church, partnering with local schools to provide character education programs, creating "egg-vitations" at Easter to encourage our youth to invite others to church, collecting items to fill Easter baskets for the homeless shelter and Baptist Children's Home residents also being active participants in prayer walks. Many fun events and outreach ministries are scheduled to engage and encourage our youth to reach the world for Christ.
Bible Game Night occurs one Wednesday a month. Following a devotion in class, students play Bible games that challenge them to learn more about God's word.
Unique excursions beyond Sundays and Wednesdays have been: snow tubing, visiting Lazy 5 Ranch, riding on the church float/handing out Bibles during the Thomasville Christmas Parade and attending day church/week church camps.

|The Toy Store Ministry is one our largest ministries at Hillside Park Baptist Church. It is meant to be a blessing to all the families we are able to help, however the biggest blessing is to everyone involved in the ministry. Applicant families are generally from Davidson county but some of the families have come from Forsyth and Guilford counties. The ministry doesn't begin and end during the Christmas season but has become a year around activity. The gathering and purchasing of toys continues all throughout the year and applications are sent out to families in need of this ministry around the first of November. Each applicant is called to set an appointment to come in to the church to receive their blessing. We share God's Word and pray with each family prior to giving them the toys for their children. Some of these families don't know Jesus as their savior and are given their first opportunity receive His salvation which is by far the most priceless gift they could receive.|

AN OUTREACH MINISTRY OF "HILLSIDE PARK BAPTIST CHURCH"
Coping with Cancer through Christ is a support group made up of survivors of all different types of cancer. Our Pastor has survived cancer three times as well. But, this ministry is not exclusive to those within our church. It is our desire to reach out into our community and help those who are affected by cancer, through support with prayer and fellowship. We want them to know that they are not alone in their battle with cancer. We meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:00 in our church fellowship hall. Light refreshments are provided at each meeting.
Our outreach ministry consists of baskets with beanies in them that some of the ladies within the church have made. We currently have baskets at the Lexington Cancer Center and at the Derrick L Davis Hematology and Oncology Clinic in Lexington. We also setup a ministry table at Relay for Life in Lexington in the month of May to pass out bible tracks, ribbons and other handsome items. This past July was our first time setting up our ministry table for the week at the Southeast Thresher's Reunion in Denton, NC. It is such a blessing to be able to reach out to others and have them share their experiences with us.
If you or someone you know could benefit from the interaction of this group, we would love to have you join us.

At Hillside Park Baptist Church we seek to edify the Lord and welcome the Holy Spirit into our Worship Services with Traditional Hymns and Southern Gospel Music. We have a wide range of talent represented at our church through our music program. We have several piano players, guitar players, a drummer and several solo, duet, trio and quartet singers. We have a choir that consist of approximately 50 members. We have choir practice on the first and fourth Sunday of each month. On the fifth Sunday of the month we have a time of special music that spotlights the musical and singing talents within the church.
We have a Sound Room that consist of five dedicated members that work hand in hand with the music program. They ensure that every note and word sung and spoken can be clearly heard and understood with crisp dictation and enriching tones. We have two screens that are controlled from the Sound Room that the Sound Technician can broadcast announcements, the title and Scripture location of the sermon. Each service is live broadcast through our website so our services can be viewed worldwide.
If God has blessed you with a song in your heart and a desire to praise Him through singing or you are interested in learning how to become a Sound Technician, we welcome you to come and sing and worship with our music program.
Through AWANA, kid’s lives are transformed, families become stronger and churches build community relationships through active involvement, thus CHANGING THE WORLD! Statistics show that 92% of AWANA alumni still attend church weekly or more, and are 3.6 times more likely to read their Bible several times a week.

What is Awana?
Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him.
How does Awana fulfill this mission? Through God’s guidance and power, Awana strives to:
How Did The Awana Program Begin?
In 1941, the children's program at the North Side Gospel Center in Chicago laid the foundation for the principles of Awana. Lance Latham, North Side's senior pastor, collaborated with the church's youth director, Art Rorheim, to develop weekly clubs that would appeal to churched and nonchurched kids. As a pioneer in children’s ministry, Art created new and innovative ways to reach kids with the gospel and lead them to know, love and serve Jesus Christ.
Other churches learned about the success of the program and inquired about its availability. In 1950, Latham and Rorheim founded Awana as a parachurch organization.
By 1960, 900 churches had started Awana programs. By 1972, Awana began its first international club in Bolivia. Today, children and youth in 104 countries participate in Awana programs and millions of adults are alumni. Awana serves churches from 100 different denominations.
Across the globe, Awana gives kids from every background and cultural setting a place to belong, build confidence and grow in faith. Awana continually expands to make disciples by pursuing new locations and partnerships. God is using the ministry of Awana in prisons, refugee camps, slums and other hard to reach places around the world.
The global reach of Awana has grown at a rapid pace with the goal of reaching 10 million kids with the gospel by 2020. Art Rorheim serves as the CoFounder/President Emeritus .

God has blessed us with a ministry that branches off of the Toy Store Ministry called "Christmas in the Park". This ministry is held the Saturday following the Toy Store. We invite all the children receiving the toys from the Toy Store back to enjoy a day filled with fun and fellowship where each child is shown God's unconditional love. We congregate to learn the "true" meaning of Christmas. The children also pick a gifts for their parents and do crafts and recreation.
Thank God for the opportunity He has given us with this ministry. We will continue to give Him all the glory for all His blessings.
This year we have the middle school program called “Teen Life”. In my opinion it’s a great curriculum for a developing teen. “Teen Life” really helps teenagers start applying the Bible to their life. Some of the themes include: Issues of Life, Christian Character Traits, Christian Leadership Principles, Bible Characters, and Bible Doctrines just to name a few. So bring your teenager, and allow them to get Biblical tools that work, on a sometimes complicated life.
Is held on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Meet at the church at 6:30
