First Day of Spring Family Fling!

April 8, 2021 Amy Wheatley

Twenty seven parents, children and youth gathered in our outdoor courtyard on the first day of spring, Sunday, March 21st. Families were joined by members of the Family, Youth and Children (FYC) ministry, and the pastors, musicians and A/V team stopped by to say “hi” on their way to worship. Adults re-connected in conversation, teens played spirited games of cornhole and the younger children ran, climbed and laughed together on the playground. We all enjoyed the warm sunny weather and a few dozen sprinkle donuts! Here are some photos of the fun!

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)

The Bible ~ 1 Thessalonians 2: 13; 2 Timothy 3: 16-17

July 1, 2018 Peg Weissbrod

The sermon begins at the 23 minute mark.

One evening last week Lisa Vahey told this story at the meeting of those who volunteer their time to be with Leonor, Adan and Louis Mario as they live with us in Sanctuary. She shared with us that often she takes Adan (who is four) to the Stone Oven on Lee for a cookie. So Adan and Lisa enter Stone Oven and apparently there are two tables filled with Forest Hill members and Adan goes right up and says hello, starts working the crowd as only he can. He knows people that Lisa doesn’t. And as she completed this story she became choked up and said: “Adan feels at home in this world, he feels welcomed!” Read the rest of this entry »

Separation Anxiety ~ Acts 1:1-12

May 8, 2016 Peg Weissbrod

Today’s a great text. The disciples are headed back to Jerusalem. And when you think about it, when you get into this scene, the disciples have to be shaking their heads in disbelief about what just happened: Jesus who had died, who had come back to life, who had been with them for a time, is now gone…and this time, for good. He’s been “beamed up to the Mothership,” so to speak. Read the rest of this entry »
