For the artist, one's craft is a language of expression and worship. Through art, be it song, dance, or design, we can invite others to deep places of experience with God. Author Mike Duran said, “We write, paint, carve and mold; we sit hunched over parchments and tape recorders, laptops and canvas, searching for the right word, the right sound, the right image, yearning to rise above our earthly origins.” We long to create as we bear the image of our Creator.

The Music

At Hillside, we strive to select music that speaks to people in a relevant, meaningful way.  It is our goal to help worshipers to worship "in spirit and in truth" (John 4:24).  That's the only stylistic guideline that Jesus ever gave us.  While Hillside incorporates a variety of music styles, our style would definitely be described as "contemporary."  Those who are accustomed to "traditional" church music would find Hillside's music a dramatic change.  Music styles at Hillside range from alternative to ballad to rock.  One thing is for sure, the entire team loves worshipping God through a wide variety of styles!

The Worship Team

The Worship Team is a dedicated group of instrumentalists who lead in worship each Sunday. Rehearsal is before and after church on Sunday mornings. Regular instruments used are 3 keyboards, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, drums and percussion. String players, woodwind players and other percussionists/instrumentalists are used as available. Contact 925-757-1969 to schedule an audition for consideration for the worship band rotation or for other instruments.

The technical ministry encompasses audio reinforcement, PowerPoint operation, recording, and video. Many opportunities are available for involvement. Contact  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  for specifics about getting involved.
