Kids

Kids are a vital part of our congregation! Instead of relegating them to a separate space, we want to include and involve them in our Sunday worship services. By being a part of the life of our church, kids learn what worship is all about! Kids are allowed to be comfortable and familiar with worship. They are also surrounded by the example of supportive adults.
 
Our services are created with everyone in mind. We want both kids and adults to be able to engage with what happens in the service. Demonstrations, videos and skits help everyone walk away with a memorable experience. There are activity bags available and a table in the back of the worship center if families should choose to use them.
 

Wednesday Night Programming

Forest Hills serves a FREE community dinner every Wednesday night from September through May. The meal is served from 5:30 – 6:15 p.m, followed by ECHO, our discipleship for kids and adults alike! Hope to see you there!

Echo

Grow groups are the heartbeat of the church! This is where disciples are made! Kids need to learn how to follow Jesus just like adults do! Because we believe kids are a vital part of our church, our small groups are geared for the whole family. Each Echo session will have a portion of time that includes interaction and prayer with kids. We also want to ensure that adults can share together and kids can have some free time with each other as well. Throughout the year, we will alternate between Echo and age divided Grow groups. Please see the Adult section of our website for more information on adult grow groups.
 

Pre-K/Nursery

We love babies! Nursery is available Sunday mornings. Whether they are cooing or crying, napping or gnawing, our nursery is up for the challenge. Nursery staff are CPR and First Aid trained and certified. On Wednesdays, we have ECHO Jr. this is a focused time for bible learning for those 4 years and under.
