Proposed Vision/Mission Statement for Forest Hill United Church
At Forest Hill United Church, we acknowledge that our church is built on ancestral, traditional and unceded Wolostoqey land. Forest Hill is a safe place for people to gather, regardless of race, creed, age, cultural background, family status, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Our mission is to live by the teaching and example of Jesus Christ in a visible and vital community in Christian worship, fellowship and service. All are welcome here!

Our church has begun the discernment process toward becoming an Affirming Congregation that accepts all people regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. On Sunday, February 7, 2016, our worship service was themed around accepting and welcoming all. Rev. Priscilla Geisterfer, PhD was our guest speaker. Here is the text of her reflection.
