Women’s Missionary Society (W.M.S.)
We have two Women’s Missionary Society groups at Forest Hills Baptist Church, The Jean Smith Women’s Missionary Society and the Carolyn Rempel Women’s Missionary Society. Both groups meet in the church lounge one Thursday afternoon a month for 10 months of the year. Jean Smith W.M.S. meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month while the Carolyn Rempel W.M.S. meets on the 3rd Thursday. The W.M.S. groups meet together to pray, study the Bible, to learn and participate in local and global mission opportunities.
Both W.M.S. groups are members of Atlantic Baptist Women: United Baptist Woman’s Missionary Union, whose objective is to engage the efforts of Christian women in evangelism, to assist in the support of CBM missionaries, to support other programs of the Canadian Baptist Ministries, to extend the cause of missions through prayer and any other means that seems desirable and necessary to this Union.
The Widows’ Bible Study meets each Wednesday morning, with coffee and muffins at 9:45am, then Bible Study and Prayer from 10:00 until 11:30am. This is a wonderful time of fellowship, learning, sharing needs, prayer support and encouragement. God uses these ladies to minister to each other; we share many laughs and tears. Many have become good friends through our times together. We close at the end of May and start up again in October. We would love for you to join us. All widows from the church or community would be most welcome.
GEMS 50+ (God’s Encouraging Ministry to Seniors)
The GEMS (God’s Encouraging Ministry to Seniors) meet one afternoon a month. We enjoy a variety of activities, dining out, trips to places of interest. Our activities are at the church and other locations in our area.
All seniors and almost seniors looking for fun, fellowship and friendships old and new, please join us, we would love to have you.
Men’s Bible Study
The Men’s Bible Study meets every Thursday morning at 10 a.m. in the church Library. Men of all ages come together to study scripture. They are currently studying the book of Psalms, verse by verse.
Sign Language Class
This class is held Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:15 p.m. and is for people who are interested in learning sign language and willing to advance in their skills so they can communicate with the deaf and interpret the Sunday morning service for our deaf community. It is a time to upgrade skills and practice not only learning signs but reading signs as well. Often the Sunday morning service is practiced and interpreted during this class. (Please note, class is not held during the summer).
Bible Study/Growth Groups
There are numerous Bible Study/Growth Groups taking place within our church fellowship. If you are interested in finding a Bible Study or Growth Group to be a part of, please contact the church office or one of our Pastors so we can help you find a group you’d enjoy.
Men’s Basketball is held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings.
