Who We Are
With just four lead pastors in its first 35 years, Forest Hills Presbyterian Church has enjoyed the stability necessary to create strong ministries for member and community needs.
For the youngest, an attractive and safe nursery is available during worship and most other activities. Parents of threes, fours and fives can take advantage of the fully NAEYC-accredited Pre-School as well as the church’s PreK-5 ministries, led by a full time Children’s Ministry Director. Special events for this age include movie nights, the Easter Egg Hunt, Vacation Bible School and Trunk-or-Treat.
Middle and High School Youth are each served—and are taught to serve—in their own youth ministries, led by our full time Director of Youth Ministries and congregational volunteers. Regular retreats and mission trips deepen the students’ understanding of and commitment to a life of faith in Jesus Christ.
Adults engage Scripture, each other and the world in Adult Education, Bible Studies, fellowship and caring ministries. Global Mission outreach includes Gordon and Dorothy Gartrell (Brazil), Simon Thiongo (Kenya) and the support of nearly 60 children through Compassion International. Local outreach includes Kid’s Hope, USA, a mentoring program with a nearby elementary school; Kid’s Food Basket, a daily meal program; the Guiding Light Rescue Mission; and several holiday-specific programs.
Music ministries for all ages include choirs, ensembles, bells, a praise band and liturgical dance, all led by our full time Director of Music and Worship Arts.
All of these ministries are housed in a facility that is both beautiful and functional, and are supported by a committed core of members and friends.
