Graduation Sunday is all about celebrating our graduates! We speak blessings over them, but we also tell the truth that life is full of setbacks and failures. But we also proclaim that when we live for Jesus, we are sustained by His grace that transforms our failures into beauty. This Sunday we’ll hear the good news of how in Jesus, we are new creations!

    Holy Heartburn
    Those who follow Jesus have the Holy Spirit in our hearts, burning as an all-consuming fire. The Holy Spirit fills our hearts with total love for God and for others, and changes us from the inside out. This Sunday we’ll hear part of the story of John and Charles Wesley, and we’ll discover that we, like they, can have our hearts strangely warmed.

    The Church on Fire
    This Sunday we celebrate Pentecost Sunday. Pentecost is the birthday of the Church! We
    light the birthday candles and proclaim that God’s holy fire is given to live within each one
    of us. This changes everything! The Holy Spirit changes us from the inside out. He changes
    how we live each day. He changes the Church. He changes our world. This Sunday come
    asking for the Holy Fire to live–and burn!–within you!

    Answered Prayer
    Series: Strange FIre
    There are many gods we can pray to, but our key question is which one will answer us? This
    Sunday we go with Elijah to the top of Mt. Carmel where God as an all-consuming fire
    comes down in answer to prayer. Seeing this, we correct our worship and switch our
    allegiance wholly to this God who is real and who answers our prayers. Only the true God
    can be our true help.

    Fire of Protection
    Series: Strange FIre
    Our God is an all-consuming fire of protection. Just as good mothers protect their children,
    so God protects and fights for us. When we put our trust in God, we will be carried through
    all the attacks of our enemies, even if that means being carried safely into eternal life.

    Anchored Disciples
    What an exciting Sunday - it’s Confirmation Sunday! Our three Confirmation students will all share their faith testimonies and publicly commit to follow Jesus. We will discover how those who choose to follow Jesus must anchor their lives on Him as their sure and solid rock. We will worship outdoors! Bring a hat and lawn chair, or there will also be spaces for drive-in worship.

    Final Fire
    Series: Strange FIre
    God’s fire burns throughout the Bible, and we see it dramatically at the End Times in Revelation. But what is the purpose of God’s burning fire at the Last Day? It’s not for punishment! Rather, it’s for purity. We invite God’s fire to purify us, and then it lights a fire under us to go live today by sharing the joy of Jesus with others.

    Consuming Fire
    Series: Strange FIre
    We often think of God as a smiling grandparent who accepts us however we are. This is true, for God does accept us just as we are. Yet God loves us too much to leave us the way we are. God’s holiness perfects us, refining us into the full intention for who God created us to be. God is an all-consuming fire!

    Strange Fire
    Series: Strange FIre
    Easter started a strange fire that continues to burn. God is again revealed as an all-consuming fire. On Easter the two disciples on the Road to Emmaus felt their hearts burning. Two weeks later, Jesus shows up at the side of the Sea of Galilee and kindles a fire. At that fire, He reinstates Peter (and them all) and re-commissions them to their calling. Living as Easter people means following our God of all-consuming fire and living as people of the Strange Fire!

    Empty Tomb
    Series: Empty
    We celebrate with fear and excitement as the women did that first Easter morning! The tomb is empty and in turn, we can fully live. Thanks be to God! What should our response be to such good news? To empty ourselves of all else so that Jesus Himself can fill us full with the Holy Spirit!

    Empty Savior
    Series: Empty
    We explore the passion of our Savior as He makes His way to the cross. It is a grueling process made all the more unbearable as Jesus empties Himself so that He is able to carry out the will of the Father. We enter into this journey so we can know what such a sacrifice means for us and for the entire world.

    Empty Hands
    Series: Empty
    What can we offer God? Less than we might think. The truth is, anything we bring before him belonged to him in the first place. We come before God empty-handed and that is just the way he intended it to be.

    This Sunday we honor the women in our lives and those in the Forest Hills family. There will be a special guest speaker from Amborella House, Terri Hopman will be talking about what they do and how we can be a light in the darkness.

    Empty Tanks
    Series: Empty
    Living life is a draining experience. So often we are running on fumes.  Where can we find sustenance in a fast food world?  Join us this week as we take a fresh look at God's provision laid out for us on the Communion table.

    Empty Words
    Series: Empty
    Talk is cheap. Anyone can utter a promise, but it is the subsequent action that matters. It is easy to point out hypocrisy and lies in others, but what comes out of our own mouths? Are our words empty of meaning or do they bless, encourage, speak truth, and provide insight? It is time for us to watch our mouths.

    Empty: Life
    Series: Empty
    Empty is an adjective that describes something without contents. Empty is a verb for removing the contents from something. This Sunday we focus our Lenten journey on emptying our lives of meaningless content so that we can become empty before God. When we are empty before God, then God can fill us with meaning, joy, and victory. So, let’s seek an empty life!

    Momentum: Peace and Persecution
    We come to the end of our Eight Beatitudes series, culminating in God’s desire that we be peacemakers. This is hard work, but we reflect God’s very character when we do. It’s ironic, however, that when we make peace, we experience persecution. Yet our blessing carries us. The series is ending, but it is for us an ongoing pattern of discipleship. Let’s keep the momentum!
  • Feb 5, 2021Momentum: Merciful and Pure Heart

    Momentum: Merciful and Pure Heart
    We come to the advanced “rings” of The Beatitudes: showing mercy and having a pure heart. God doesn’t want us just to be saved. He wants us to become like He is. That means being merciful and pure in heart. This may seem impossible for us, but God gives us the Holy Spirt to work this maturity in us. This Sunday come ready to enrol in advanced discipleship training!

    Momentum (The Beatitudes): Righteousness
    Are you hungry? Jesus says that hungry people are blessed. Not hungry for just anything, however: hungry and thirsty for righteousness (living God’s way). Developing a hunger for holiness comes through training over time our taste away from selfishness and towards God’s plan. This Sunday we’ll hear how Jesus, as our Bread of Life, trains our hunger!

    Momentum: Meek
    Beatitude #3: Meekness. It’s seen as weakness by our culture. Yet Jesus calls it our strength. This Sunday we will fill up on meekness, as we embrace that its surrender and submission  requires a strength and power beyond ourselves. Yet we are blessed, for we have the Holy Spirit to grow this godly meekness deep in our hearts, and give us a rich inheritance.
