Announcements for June 16, 2024

  • Pastoral Care and Pastoral Visit: When you need pastoral care, contact Rev. Eunkyu JI or the church office. Visits to the minister's office are welcome anytime. E-mail: rev.ekji@gmail.com
    Tue. and Thur. at Forest Hill, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. or by appointment
    Wed. and Fri. at Gibson, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. or by appointment

  • Our Picnic Supper: Thank you everybody for your help.

  • Our Picnic Service: will take place on Sunday, June 16th at 11:30 am on the church lawn (or inside if necessary due to weather).  Please bring your lawn chair or blanket, sunscreen and bug spray.  Please bring finger foods (with a list of ingredients attached) to share for a potluck lunch.  Lemonade and ice cream will be provided.  Contact Karen or Diane for more information.

  • Scott's Nursery Spring Fundraiser: This Sunday at church is the last opportunity to buy one or two coupons for a tray of annuals ($37 for eight six-packs of any annuals) as well as one or two coupons for a 10" hanging basket ($28 each).  All coupons purchased through our fundraiser must be redeemed by Sunday.  (Scott's closes at 5 that day so you can go after the picnic.)  You can still purchase e-gift cards (in denominations of $25, $50, $75, $100 or $200) until 11:59 pm on Sunday.  To purchase an e-gift card, either to go https://www.scottsnurseryonline.com/products/egift-card-forest-hill-united-churchor use your smart phone to scan the QR code found on the poster at the church.  The e-gift cad will be e-mailed to you and you can use it towards the purchase of any item from Scott's Nursery either on-line or in store or gift it to someone else (including the church) by forwarding the e-gift card.  The e-gift cards never expire, can be gradually used (with any balance remaining given to you on a physical card if you use it in person) and Forest Hill will receive 20% of the amount of e-gift cards purchased (e.g. if you purchase a $100 e-gift card, the church will receive $20).

  • Plantsitters still needed:  There are several 4" succulents that need plantsitting until a fall church fundraiser.  They just need a sunny spot and occasional watering (more if they start to turn red or brown). You can pick up one or more plants at church or contact Karen to make other arrangements.

  • Eclipse Glasses: If you have solar eclipse glasses that you no longer want, please put them in the box by the food bank box by August 30th.  They will be donated to Astronomers without Borders who will vet them to ensure that they can be safely reused and then give them to a location having a future solar eclipse.

  • Fellowship of the Least Coin: The UCW ladies invite members of the congregation to save their nickels for this organization which fosters prayer and help for peace and reconciliation in the world.  It is particularly focused on women who have suffered injustices around the world.  It is connected to the Women's Interchurch Council and thus encompasses many churches around the world.  We send the monies raised by this to WICC each year in the fall. A jar marked Fellowship of the Least Coin will be available on Sundays on the hymn cabinet.

  • Projectionists and readers: are needed for the remaining Sundays in June and the whole month of August.  Please sign up on the list at the back of the church.

  • Service Times until June 30th: Gibson Sunday worship services will begin at 10:00 a.m. and social time with tea/coffee and treats will follow each service. Forest Hill United Church services will begin at 11:30 a.m. for this time period and social time with tea/coffee will be before service beginning at 10:45 a.m. in the Parlour.

  • COVID-19 precautions: Please continue to wash or sanitize your hands when you enter the church.  Mask use is optional.  Please direct any questions or concerns to Karen, Margie or Mary.

  • GMUC ladies: would like to extend an invitation to FHUC ladies to join them Tuesday afternoons at 1:30 p.m. in the church hall for Women Together.
