Christmas Eve Services

December 16, 2022 Antoinette Richardson

Dear Friends, 

The Staff of Forest Hill Church and I wish you a very Merry Christmas! We are blessed to be part of this great congregation. Your commitment to worship, to learning, to hospitality and to both the inner work of prayer and the outer work of justice give testimony to your faith, hope and love. 

May you find a peace that passes all our understanding; a joy that lifts your spirit, a love that carries you through difficult moments. Remember that Christ was born.  He knows the fullness of life, the moments of bliss and the moments of pain. May we all be mindful of others this season.   

I hope you will be able to join us at one of the Christmas Eve services at 5:00 and 11:00.  The early service will be for all ages, with a special focus on the children. The late service will be our community service featuring Eligie!  If 11:00 is too late for you, make sure to tell your friends about it.  

We will be worshiping on Christmas Day at 11:00.  Come casually. We will sing hymns, read scripture, say our prayers and then head home!  

God bless you this Christmas season!  Christ is born!  ~John

Celebrating Community at Pentecost

July 1, 2021 Amy Wheatley

Thirty parents, children and youth gathered outdoors at the church on Sunday, May 23 to celebrate Pentecost. Youth group teens helped dramatize the Pentecost story for the younger children. We heard how God’s spirit came to Jesus’ followers like a mighty wind and enabled them to tell people from different lands about God’s love. We learned that all were welcome in this new community of people who lived together, ate together, prayed together, and shared all that they had with one another. We concluded our celebration with cupcakes, bubbles and play with friends!
