At HillTop we believe we are not called to be an audience, but an army of soldiers serving Him! CareCenter Ministries is the missions organization through which HillTop Church serves the community. Through a variety of Christ-centered programs, we seek to reach the least, the lost and the lonely through programs that strengthen the hand of the poor.
HillTop Church and CareCenter Ministries is a harmonious union. Both of us play equal notes, yet the medley is so interwoven that we are unfinished without the other. These are the instruments of change that make up CareCenter Ministries, and the vessel for mission opportunities for HillTop Church.
