Spring Hills is a community of believers that worship on our campuses in Granville and Utica, Ohio. Our vision is to build generations for Jesus Christ who love, live, and lead like Jesus.
We are a grace-filled church that offers help and healing for people from all walks of life. We began with just a handful of people and we are now a multi-generational church that averages over 1000 attendees during our weekend services.
We have four different weekend services and three different worship teams. Each service has its own unique feel but our teaching is the same for all of our services. We also offer many different ministries to serve you and volunteer opportunities where you can serve others.
We want you to feel at home and relaxed, and we strive to be a place where you don’t get lost in the shuffle. As you check out this website and discover more about who we are and what we do, it is our hope and prayer that you will come visit us in person. When you arrive our host teams are available to answer any questions or simply help you know where to go. You can find more information below about our weekend services and information to help you plan your visit.

We believe the best place to find community and grow spiritually is in a life group. Life Groups are small groups where people do life together and grow spiritually. Life Groups include small groups that meet in homes, study groups, service groups, and accountability groups. Our hope is that each person at Spring Hills moves beyond casual relationships to authentic community by joining a Life Group. Go here to find out how you can join a life group.
