Hillside Community Church began services and formally organized in 1988. Vic Peters is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through outreach by the British Columbia (BC) Conference of Mennonite Brethren (MB) Churches, and replaced South Otter Mennonite Brethrenwhich dissolved in November 1987 because of problems in that congregation.
Eventually, attendance reached 150. However, the congregation slowly declined and held its last service in June 2010. Proceeds from the sale of the sanctuary were used for church planting ventures by the BC Conference of MB Churches, with 10% of the proceeds given to Pines Bible Camp in Grand Forks, BC, a ministry that the congregation supported over a number of years.
