Installation of our new Co-Pastor:
Rev. Dr. Veronica Goines!
The Installation of Rev. Dr. Veronica R. Goines as Co-Pastor of Forest Hill Church on May 5 was a joyful celebration not only of Rev. Goines’ ministry among us but of three years of discernment, and an historic new beginning to the unfolding of God’s “new thing” in and through Forest Hill Church.

Each Sunday a different lay person leads the Call to Worship and reads the scripture lessons. If you’ve wondered whether you can be a Lay Reader, contact Linda Martin to let her know of your interest. Whether you’ve been a Lay Reader and wish to continue or want to try it for the first time, she can answer your questions and go over the readings with you until you feel comfortable reading in front of the congregation.
