WHAT IS

FAMILY MINISTRY?

Family Ministry is our ministry for kids, students, and their parents. Our mission is to glorify God by making disciples who know Christ, grow in Christ, and go for Christ. To do this, we want to equip parents and empower leaders to influence the life and faith of the next generation.

We place a high value on safety, fun, friendship, intentionality, and relevance in all our Family Ministry environments. We believe that when you combine the influence of the church with the love of the family, we can make a greater impact on the life and faith of kids and students than we could separately.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who is Family Ministry for?

Forest Hill Church is a place where you can belong before you believe. We welcome everyone and do our best to create environments where everyone can belong.

What are LifeGroups?

We believe growth happens best in circles, not in rows. LifeGroups are a small group environment where your child/student will be with peers of their age and gender, along with consistent leaders for discussion and activities around different Bible topics.

Can I stay with my child/student?

Safety is one of our five values in Family Ministry. Because of this, the only adults that are allowed to attend are Family Ministry volunteers with approved background checks. If you are interested in volunteering in Family Ministry, simply let us know.

Can my child/student bring their friends?

Of course! We want church to be a place that your child/student loves to bring their friends.

Does my child/student need to bring money?

None of our services cost money to attend. Advance environments offer snacks and drinks for sale, but these are optional.
