The Youth Group at Forest Hill Church discusses, encounters and experiences faith through bible studies, retreats, mission trips, and fellowship. We are involved in all areas of Forest Hill Church: service to our own church family, mission and local outreach, as well as taking part in Sunday morning worship.
Mid-High Youth Fellowship
Our 6th-8th graders focus on building relationships through volunteer projects, prayer, fellowship and exploring our role in Christ’s community.
In addition to sometimes partnering up with the Senior High youth group, we have several Mid-High-Only events such as:
- Bible Studies
- Friday night Lock-Ins
- Weekend trips in and around Cleveland Heights
- Movie Nights
During the summer, the Mid-Highs take a 4-5 day trip together where they explore what it means to be part of a faith community.
Senior-High Youth Fellowship
Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30am – Senior High Youth (9th – 12th grade) meet for a time of discussion, study, and fellowship.
Fun Outings – We also gather twice a month to watch a movie together, meet for coffee or ice cream, go to a sporting event, see a play or other fun ideas.
Overnights & Retreats – Both at Forest Hill Church and outside of the Cleveland area
Mission Projects - Get together with Mid-High youth for volunteering projects in the community.
Forest Hill is one of the leadership churches for Converge, a monthly worship service for middle and high school students. Converge meets on the 2nd Sunday every month at 7pm at First Baptist in Shaker Heights. Learn more about Converge here and visit our facebook page to stay up to date on the latest Converge worship.
Summer Mission Trips
Each summer, the Senior High youth travel together for a week of mission. Past trips have included Leon, Nicaragua; the Presbyterian Triennium in Indiana; Cherokee, North Carolina; Juarez, Mexico; and Washington DC.
8th graders & up are encouraged to attend our confirmation class. Confirmation is offered on Sunday mornings from November to March during the education hour before worship..
