First Time Visitors

If you are a first time visitor to Forest Hill Church, welcome! We’re so excited you have chosen to worship with us or attend one of our events.

Kids@FHC is the children’s ministry at Forest Hill Church for children birth - 5th grade.

During the adult weekend services, kids participate in their own interactive program. For kids 3 and up, this time is broken down into two parts- LifeGroup (small group) time and large group Bible story time.

LifeGroups are small groups of children who meet weekly with the same leader. This allows children to interact and learn from consistent individuals who are excited about sharing God’s word and passionate about helping them apply that truth to their daily lives. We encourage you to pick a service time and stick with it so your child can get the most from being in his or her LifeGroup.

LifeGroup time is supplemented by the large group storytelling time. These environments bring Bible stories to life in dramatic and engaging ways while allowing kids the opportunity to experience and explore truths about God, Jesus, the Bible, and why it all matters.

In addition to weekend programs, Kids@FHC is passionate about equipping parents to be the spiritual leaders of their homes. Because of this, we offer a variety of parenting tools and resources to help moms and dads who want to raise kids with real, Christ-centered faith.

Some of these resources include:

  • The Continue the Conversation card and weekly activities – helping parents bring home and apply what their child learned at church
  • Recommended books and websites on Christian parenting in our Resources area of the website
  • Family-focused, interactive events for families with children ages 3 yrs old – 5th grade
  • Online video series based on Bible stories and recent lessons to watch with your family at home
  • Family service project opportunities and ideas – helping parents make serving a part of their family’s lifestyle
