Ministry of Adult Spiritual Growth (formerly, Ministry of Adult Education and Spiritual Formation)

June 10, 2021

This Ministry is a group of people, including both elected Elders who serve on Session and other volunteers, who oversee adult Christian education and spiritual formation for Forest Hill Church. We design and promote opportunities for adults to learn the Christian story, both ancient and present, to develop the skills they need to live out their faith as members of a covenant community, and to reflect on that story in order to live self-aware in its truth.

In May of 2021, we adopted a new Statement of our Mission, Vision, Values, and Responsibilities. It was approved by the Session of Forest Hill Church on May 26, 2021.

We will post a summary and a link to the full Statement here soon. Watch this space!

Schedule for the Summer of 2021

Sunday Morning Bible Study each Sunday before Worship Service, from June 6 through August 28, from 9:30-10:30 AM: Each Sunday, a facilitator (Pastor John Lentz and several church members who are active in the Ministry of Spiritual Growth will facilitate the discussions) will show a short video designed to inspire discussion about Jesus and his teachings. Then they will encourage the group to discuss the questions raised by the video. There are no right answers to these questions! If you are interested, please sign up here: https://fhc.breezechms.com/form/98da6c4545382647.

Bible and Bagels: Wednesday mornings @7:30 with Pastor Lentz, Participants meet early in the morning for coffee and bagels and a lively discussion of the upcoming lectionary passage. Drop-ins are welcome. There’s nothing to read ahead of time. *Before the pandemic, we met in person and provided bagels for everyone. We hope to do that again soon. Meanwhile, we meet on Zoom and bring whatever breakfast we have at home. If you are interested, please sign up here: https://fhc.breezechms.com/form/98da6c454538264754.

Faith Leader and Small Plates: These popular programs are designed to help participants discern God’s calling for their lives. Learn more here.

Other Offerings: Watch the weekly bulletins and monthly newsletters for upcoming classes. New groups form regularly and meet together for as long as desired. If you are interested in starting a new group, we are happy to assist.


Pilgrimages, both domestic and international, are an exciting way to grow in faith.
