Church Jubilee Celebrations

The people of Forest Hill Congregation had a great celebration
Sunday 6 March, 2016, recognizing 150 years of worship, witness and service as a
community of God’s people.

Over 250 people gathered for worship  including many who came back to celebrate the occasion with us.
Revd Anne Honey inspired us with a thought provoking sermon focusing
of the parable of the Prodigal Son. It was great to see ministers
from past years join us for the celebration. We spent time recalling
memories as we reflected of a display of memorabilia and sharing

Over 200 people joined in a spit roast luncheon which was
followed with some special entertainment, including hymn singing, a
melodrama and a duet from two of our men—disguised as policemen.

The day was a great example of the members of our congregation
working closely together to make the event such a success.
Special thanks to:  Marge LaFontaine who headed the organizing committee and the members of that hardworking group.   Glenys Coates
who organized invitations and RSVPs, Beth and Geoff Walker who
oversaw the catering, Pat Hall and the members of the special choir
and Mary Fox for playing the organ and the many other people who
had special tasks to do.
A special thankyou to David Lewis who looked after the transference
of visual images to the Hall.
We all appreciated the very special contribtion Lorraine Kovlovsky
did with the banner and Alan Trethewey with the history booklet. If

The day was a great community effort, thank you all for what you did.
May God keep us moving forward as pilgrim people.
Grace and peace
