Local Compassion

Hillcrest has several local ministry partnerships in Oregon and the greater Madison area. Some are financial while others offer opportunities for you to serve.  Click below if you would like more information on how to get involved.


Oregon Brooklyn Food Pantry

Oregon is blessed to have a new food pantry, built to better meet the needs of those in our community who struggle to put food on the table for their families. The brand new building at the corner of Janesville Rd. and Alpine Pkwy. (on the campus of People's United Methodist Church) is staffed by area churches and organizations; Hillcrest helps stock the shelves through Food Drives and serves periodically with food sorting and distribution.

In need of assistance?

Oregon Manor

Hillcrest pastors and volunteers plan a worship service for the residents once a month (in rotation with other community churches).

Oregon Clergy Partnership

Oregon area churches have partnered to more effectively provide financial assistance to individuals and families in need in our local community.

Neighbors In Need of Assistance (NINA) Fund

The NINA Emergency Fund assists families in the Oregon-Brooklyn School district who have children under 18 with funding for rent and utilities in emergency situations. The fund collects donations from individuals and organizations in the Oregon-Brooklyn community and disburses over $25,000 in assistance each year. This program is administered by Joe Sullivan, Oregon’s social worker through the statewide “Joining Forces for Families” program, which is a service of the Dane County Department of Human Services.

Cutting Edge Ministries

Cutting Edge Outreach Ministries exists to inspire and equip a generation to impact their world with the gospel of Jesus Christ through events, evangelism, and missions. Hillcrest partners with Cutting Edge by offering youth mission trips both locally and in cities across the United States.
