Sunday Worship

August 4, 2022 Antoinette Richardson

Outdoor Worship – on Sundays, August 14, 21 and 28, join us on the church’s front steps for morning worship. Masks are NOT required!! We will have tents for shade. Sit on the grass, bring a folding chair and bottled water, or dance the whole service long! There will be some chairs waiting for you as well. Let’s show the world what Forest Hill Church is up to!

Guest Preachers – On Sunday, September 4 – Jean Reinhold, poet, artist, teacher and preacher, will give the sermon. Jean’s sermons are always artful and agitating…

Our Kickoff Sunday is September 11. Masks will no longer be mandatory. We recommend that you continue to wear them for your and others’ protection however they will not be required. Of course, depending on the scientific data, things could change.

Bring a friend to church! Let’s fill up the sanctuary again!

The “Hope” classes in the Follow Me curriculum combine Bible study and group discussion. Working together with specific scripture passages, we as group members will help each other grow into a deeper understanding of Hope as a Biblical practice. We will identify where in our own lives we have already experienced hope. Then we will envision how we can practice seeing, hearing, offering and receiving, and proclaiming hope more deeply to one another.

Marking a Year of COVID-19

March 10, 2021 Amy Wheatley

This week marks one year of COVID-19 in our community. Here’s a prayer that may help your family reflect on the past year. Share some of the feelings you’ve experienced and name some sources of strength and grace you’ve discovered. How have you felt God’s presence in your lives?


Wonder Worker,
In this year when everything changed,
when we felt worried and weary,
when we wailed and we wondered, you
gave us a promise…..
Nothing can separate us from your love.
And nothing will be wasted.
With you at work, light, live,
love, and liberation, always
win. Amen.
(Illustrated Ministry, LLC. 2021)
