Statement of Purpose
Forest Heights United Methodist Church has a purpose to continue the faithful ministry ordained by God to its members, the community and the world. The congregation stands on a firm foundation of worship, service and the sharing of the Gospel. For sixty plus years, this congregation has met challenges and joys with great faithfulness. The current “legacy” congregants, together with those who are forging different approaches of faithful ministry, commit to forming disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world in this place and time.
Strengthening congregational care, worship, mission and spiritual growth of our congregation, is one of the two fold vision statements of this church.
First, to encourage, nurture and challenge the legacy congregation as they go forward in their journey of faith and service to God and neighbor.
Second, to engage new, diverse and younger members (“leadership seeds”) and our friends to worship, serve, study, fellowship and participate in outreaching ministry with us as a part of their journey of faith.
We, the “legacy” and the “leadership seeds” of Forest Heights United Methodist Church, recognizing that beginnings and endings are a part of our faith journey, commit, with God’s help, to be vital and faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.
