Plan a visit

What to expect

Arrive early to check in kids (see schedule for details). Stop by the Welcome Center to ask questions and get pointed in the right direction. Our volunteers are happy to assist you.

Where do I park?

Our parking team will direct you to the closest available spot. We reserve parking spots for our first time guests, so if you're new to The Hills, be sure to turn your flashers on when you enter the parking lot.

How long is the service?

The service will last about 70 minutes and include music, a message from one of our teaching ministers and a special candlelighting moment.

What do you do for kids?

We believe that Christmas is a time to share with the whole family so we invite kids to join their parents in the worship center for our candlelight services. See the candlelight service schedule for details on which services will offer childcare for kids 2 months - 2 years.

*If you have kids with special needs who need care and will be attending a service at the Southlake campus, please let us know at so we can plan for them.

What should I wear?

You’ll see people in anything from jeans to more formal attire so wear whatever you feel comfortable in and you’ll fit right in.
