Tim Hlil Family

Tim, Heidi, Annalise and Dexter Hill

We have been members of the Sunnyside SDA church since 2006. Our daughter, Annalise, and son, Dexter, were born into the Sunnyside family. There were four main things that attracted us to Sunnyside. First, the “high church” style of routine worship services. Second, the high standard of music presented in worship services which includes the welcome participation of all ages of musicians. Third, the location close to Adventist Medical Center where Dr. Tim works. And fourth, Senior Pastor Dave Allen (who is now at the Oregon Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.)

Now that we have been members for a few years, we also have come to appreciate the very fine children’s ministries division full of diversity. This provides our kids a rich children’s worship experience.

We participate in leading the Kindergarten Sabbath School class, performing music for church, and presenting the children’s story for church. We are delighted to call Sunnyside our church home
