Dear Hillsdale Family and Heart of a Shepherd Readers,

You are invited to join us this Sunday, 10:00 AM for Hillsdale’s celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ (notice the time change for this Sunday’s worship service).

Of course, we would love to have you join us for congregational worship; however, for those who cannot, or live far from Tampa, you are invited to join us online via Hillsdale’s Facebook Page, or for better reception at

This Sunday’s service will begin at 10:00 AM, and will feature our congregation singing the traditional carols of Christmas, along with vocal solos, ensembles, instrumental music, and Hillsdale’s church choir. I know you will find the music of the season inspiring.

I am looking forward to preaching a message of HOPE titled, “Hope Fulfilled: The Virgin Birth of the King of Kings,” a study of various passages of Scripture that were fulfilled when Christ was born.

Don’t forget, this Sunday’s morning worship is at 10:00 AM, and we will also be broadcasting our traditional Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, on Thursday, December 24, 6:00 PM.

Though only an hour in length, the service is memorable as we enjoy the simplicity of carols, special music, and the beauty of an auditorium aglow with candlelight and fellowship.

(Please note that we will be observing COVID-19 Guidelines and ask that you sit as family units, and allow for social distancing.)

With the heart of a shepherd,

Pastor Travis D. Smith
