Forest Hill Church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, is one of the most progressive churches in our denomination. It’s a great place to experience spiritual growth and work for change within a supportive inclusive community.
We believe that God is Love, that each and every person is a beloved child of God, and that following Jesus Christ is the best way for us to share that Love with others and ourselves.

With a building constructed on many different levels, we were challenged to make the entire building accessible to all, no matter their limitations. It took planning and the generous contributions of the congregation but the building is technically fully accessible. Is it perfect? No, but we’re working on the next phase. If you’re challenged in any way, please let us know how we can help.
Community groups and individuals are often in need of space for programs and events. Call our office administrator, Lynda Bernays, at 216.321.2660, for more info.
