serve locally

Hilmar Covenant has always invested much of its time and resources in this community. These are many of the ways in which we do so.

  • hilmar christian children's center

    The Hilmar Christian Children's Center is licensed for children from ages two years up to fourteen. We are designed to meet the needs of working parents, as well as the parents who wish their children to have some preschool experiences before attending kindergarten.

  • spanish ministry

    Hilmar is home to a sizeable Spanish-speaking community, many of whom do not yet understand English. A number of years ago, together with Iglesia del Pacto (our Covenant Spanish speaking congregation in Turlock), Hilmar Covenant began to reach out to these residents to discover ways we can meet their needs. Today, we have a number of opportunities to build relationships with the Latino community in Hilmar:

    • English classes for Spanish-speakers (including child care) Classes will begin in 2020
    • "Fit 'n Free" aerobics classes: 8:15 am M-W-F (children welcome)
    • Tuesday night open gym @ 8:30 pm, led by the men from Iglesia del Pacto

    ยกBienvenidos a nuestra iglesia!

  • vacation bible school

    This week is a great time to serve our local community! Last year we had over 100 kids coming to learn about Jesus! Each day the kids learned about God's amazing love for them through different Bible truths presented to them through games, a Bible story, songs, real life stories about kids and cool science gizmos.
