Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
I Timothy 4:12
The purpose of the Youth Ministry is to develop the whole person – spiritually, mentally, and physically – through Christ centered youth programs, evangelistic and leadership training, social interaction and community involvement. The Youth Ministry actively works with the church leadership, membership, youth, and parents to grow mature, young Christian leaders – who will ultimately be prepared to step into the role of Christian leadership in the church and community.
Sunday Morning Children’s Worship (Every Fourth Sunday) – Children of all ages are welcome to worship in the main sanctuary with their families and friends. Each fourth Sunday, parents are invited to check their school age children (up to 6th grade) into our Children’s Worship service, where children sing, pray, and participate in age appropriate Bible lessons and bible-based activities.
The Mother/Daughter Lock-in is a spirit-filled weekend where mothers and daughters build relationships, learn together, and do fun activities. Attendees gain great value and lasting memories that help along life’s way.

Young People as Threads Through our Tapestry
The youth of Forest Hill are constantly encouraged to participate in every aspect of our being. Consequently, young people help welcome our visitors, assist with technology and public relations, serve guests during food events, conduct parts of worship, and more. So in addition to specific programs set up for them, young people at our congregation play active roles in all we do.
