Making space for an encounter with the transformative love of Jesus.

 

SERMONS FULL SERVICE ARCHIVES

Worship In-Person or Online!

We are gathering both in-person and online for worship as we begin our new worship series, The God We Can Know, where we will focus on the “I AM” statements of Jesus that show us the personal, life-fulfilling images of who God is, both in us and in the world around us. Join us at 10AM each Sunday, both on this page and in-person in our Sanctuary, for worship. See our Indoor Worship Guidelines before worshipping with us in our Sanctuary. 

 

Current Worship Series:

Sunday Worship

We gather to worship God through song, friendship, prayer, and word – believing that we depend on the faith of Jesus and one another to live as a follower of Jesus.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

Children aren’t just the future of the church – they are the church now! We believe that when people of all ages worship together, we get a little glimpse of God’s kingdom on earth. We welcome all children to worship in the sanctuary with their parents, and also invite them to spend some time hearing God’s word shared at a level best suited for their age.

WHAT DOES SUNDAY MORNING LOOK LIKE FOR CHILDREN AT FOREST HILLS UMC

During the 9:00am Sunday School hour, children are invited to join a class on Bible Basics, which is just what it sounds like! Children will adventure through the stories in the Bible, learning basic Bible skills and reflecting on how the story relates to their own lives. The children love to read the story, do crafts, and play games during this hour. You will find the Children’s Classroom in the lower level of the Fellowship Hall/staff offices building (same room for Wonder Worship).

 

We love for children to be a part of our worshipping community at 10:00am. Most children sit with their parents for the beginning of worship in the sanctuary, come forward to hear a short Children’s Message during the service, and then head to Wonder Worship together, where they will experience imaginative Bible storytelling and work on a creative response to that day’s story. Following the service, parents pick up their children in the Wonder Worship classroom.

 

Our nursery is also available during worship for children under 3. You will find the nursery in the lower level of the Fellowship Hall/staff offices building, across from the Children’s Classroom (Wonder Worship room).

 

If this is your first time and you’d like some direction, just arrive a little early (9:50 is fine!) and ask one of the greeters to help show you around.

Music Ministry at Forest Hills UMC

God has gifted this group with some amazing musical talent and passion! Our congregational choir, handbell choir, strummers group, and other soloists from our congregation regularly lead us in powerful worship. Every now and then, we are also blessed to have community musicians join us! Highlights have included the Grateful Bluegrass Band, string ensembles, and guest organists. Through all music ministry, we hope you will experience both the awesome power and the intimate love of God.

 

Are you a singer? A bell ringer? Would you like to become one? Email our Director of Music and Worship, Biff Fink; he is a fantastic teacher and leader, and would love to connect with you and find where your musical passions and talents best match the church’s needs.

LEADING IN WORSHIP

 

Worship is an act of the gathered people – that includes you! Sign up here to lead the congregation in prayer and scripture reading, to serve communion, or to bring the light of Christ into the sanctuary as an acolyte. We will prepare you for all you need to know and will even help you pronounce those tricky Old Testament names.
