Sliding Into Summer Tour

There’s something special about summertime. Whether you’re at the pool, watching a movie, or taking in a baseball game, there’s something about this season of the year that’s unlike any other. Personally, I think that certain something is freedom. Our work schedules aren’t so hectic, the kids are out of school, and we’re able to get away more often to do things that we like to do.

Freedom gives us the chance to step away from our responsibilities at school, work, and elsewhere. As you revel in all these summertime freedoms, remember that these freedoms don’t replace our responsibility as Christians to be the presence of Christ wherever we may be.

As part of our Summer Tour emphasis, we want to remind each Christian that our call to be salt and light isn’t something we can walk away from while on vacation. Wherever we are, and whatever we’re doing, never forget to let others see Jesus in your words and actions.

As a reminder of this call, be sure to pick up your FREE Summer Tour wristband here at church (baskets of wristbands are available in the Gathering Place, Fellowship Hall, and Sanctuary). You’ll find a hashtag on these wristbands (#FHBCSummerTour) that you can use on your social media posts over the summer to let your church family know what you’re up to!

Also, even though things slow down here at Forest Hills over the summer months, we’re still seeking, serving, and sharing Christ together. There are special opportunities over the summer for spiritual growth, prayer, community service, and so much more. To find out more about these opportunities, make sure you visit and stay informed through our emails and social media posts.

So remember, wherever you go and whatever you do, let others see Jesus in you!
