At this time of sheltering at home, many Christian organizations are offering free resources to help us continue to grow in our faith and knowledge of Jesus.

Ligonier Ministries
Ligonier Ministries has opened up their collection of  teaching series . They’ve also added 20+ teaching series to  Amazon Prime  and unlocked the  group study  feature at Ligonier Connect so you can take courses with others.

Pipeline Leadership Training
This 2-year training is actually always free for SBC churches. However, this is as good a time as any to grow in your leadership as well as your knowledge of Jesus. You can join at this link:  Pipeline.

Audible has opened up  Audible Stories  for free. There are lots of classic and contemporary works there.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
We are praying for you in this difficult time.
Bible Studies
We will continue to offer you the opportunity to gather online in a Sunday Morning Bible study. Each group will begin at 9 AM. Follow the links below on Sunday morning to join with other people to connect around God's Word.
Church at Home
Who’s joining us online for church at home this Sunday? We’ll see you in your living room at 10:30 AM.

View the message here on Sunday.

Immediately following the service, we want to invite everyone to a life check-in on zoom. This will be a time to see other people's faces and to pray together. Drop-in anytime between 11:45 AM and 12:45 PM.
K-12 School
On Wednesday, April 1, we began offering childcare for kindergarten through grade 5 children of essential workers. We received compliments from parents who work in the health field who was pleased with the “extra” precautions we are taking to keep our students and staff healthy! If childcare during the day is something that can help you, contact us for information.

We will be observing Easter Break on April 13-17. Let's all unplug from technology and breathe! Teachers will not be responding to emails or texts and students will not have homework. Enjoy this time off.

Need a little pick me up? You don't want to miss this! Check out this video of one of North Hills' kindergarten students singing one of our elementary chapel songs.
Virtual Field Trips
We know it's difficult to be stuck at home. Check out some of these websites that offer virtual field trips to be able to explore the world around you. A few examples of "trips" are the Library of Congress, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Dairy farms, Monterey Aquarium, and much more!
