A Small Group Pilot Program is beginning with 3 small groups meeting at 3 different times during the week. Each provides an opportunity to grow in faith with fellow Forest Hill Church friends. Current offerings are listed below. To sign up for a group, email the group leader listed for the small group that interests you. Requested commitment: five meetings.

Group 2 Lectio Divina, All ages
Leader: Liz Wollaeger
Location: Forest Hill Church Chapel
When: Thursdays, 7:00-7:45pm, April 25-May 23
For five weeks we will study scripture texts that follow the events after the Resurrection. One of the most ancient Christian spiritual practices, Lectio Divina helps you find the bible as a contemplative pathway to the presence of God. This kind of prayerful meditation with scripture helps in deeper understanding of God’s word. We will follow the four steps of this classic spiritual practice. Lectio-listening; Meditio-reflecting; Orati-responding; Comtemplatio-resting.
Group 3 Family and Faith Small Group
