Discipleship at Forest Hills

A church is more than bricks and Bibles. It’s a community of people. And as we know, no two people are alike. Even so, we find unity through this sort of community. A community where people who are completely different in age, occupation, politics, and worldview can all sit together and have honest conversations. A community where God’s Word is shared, discussed, and lived out. A community where we support each other through good times and bad.

Here at Forest Hills, we believe that growth best happens in community. Through the relationships we build with God and one another, our lives are forever changed in the best kind of way! No matter your interests, or your schedule, we provide a number of opportunities throughout the week for you to grow in community with others. On Sundays, we provide Sunday School classes prior to worship and throughout the week, we provide Life Groups which meet at different times during the week. To learn more these discipleship opportunities, keep reading below!

What is a life group?

A life-group is a group of people who commit to meet with one another weekly to share in one another’s lives, to dive deeper into the scriptures, and to work out our faith together. A life group isn’t a Bible study (though we’ll be reading the Bible and really wrestling with a biblical passage each week), and a life group isn’t a Sunday School class by a different name. A life group is simply a chance to truly share life together, to be real with one another, and take our faith to the next level.

What will a life group do each week?

Each week we’ll take some time to hang out and get to know each other, and to hear what’s going on in each other’s lives. We’ll have some time to pray together and pray for one another. Then we’ll dive deeper into the sermon passage from the contemporary worship service. You aren't required to do any study or homework beforehand, and you don't have to attend contemporary worship in order to participate. All you need to do is to be willing to engage with the group around our weekly questions. Sample questions might include:

  1. What did you find hopeful about the text?

  2. What did you find troubling or confusing about the text?

  3. What is the text teaching us about Jesus?

  4. What is the text teaching us about ourselves?

  5. Where is the Gospel in the text and how does it change you?
