Forest Hills is having a food Round Up for the Baptist Children’s Homes!  

"Feeding North Carolina's largest family is no small task." During the month of April, Forest Hills will join other churches in collecting food and supplies for children from circumstances where they could not count on having food to eat regularly.

“When it comes to feeding the boys and girls being cared for by Baptist Children’s Homes, it boils down to simple math:  the more children served means more food is needed. As many as 700,000 meals and snacks are prepared throughout the year at Baptist Children’s Homes. That number will rise again in 2016."


Please help by bringing these items to church now through 5/1 and leaving them in boxes outside the library in The Gathering Place or Fellowship Hall:
