Special Temple Worship 21 January
Forest Hills will return to regularly scheduled services at Forest Hills beginning December 17, 2017!
Thank you to everyone for the countless hours of work, prayers, and dedication to our Community.
Also, a very warm Thank You to the Louisville Congregation for your hospitality with the Forest Hills congregation while the building was being renovated!
See the Announcement below:
In the spirit of a new start, Grady and I put up a Charlie Brown Christmas tree in the fellowship hall. It’s pretty bare, needs a lot of work to make it look nice, just like the situation we are in with the building.
You Can Help Us Reach Our Year-End Worldwide Mission Tithes Goal
We greet you in the name of Jesus Christ and give thanks for your willingness to make Christ’s mission your mission.
As the USA Team of Apostles, we continue to engage in significant prayer, thought, and discussion on how to support you in mission. The recent World Church budget and staff reduction process gave us an opportunity to again consider the critical needs of the church in the United States. The discussion also helped us focus on mission opportunities, now and into the future.
From those discussions emerged a plan to redeploy staff and set aside funds for new missional expressions that “birth, nurture, and multiply communities of disciples and seekers engaged in spiritual formation and compassionate ministry in action.” (From President Steve Veazey’s webcast: “A Time to Act!”
These ministers have and will be redeployed in the USA Mission Field:
Keith McMillan: Latter-day Seeker support in Arizona, beginning January 2018, continuing as president of Seventy Quorum No. 4
Larry McGuire: Congregational leadership and innovation (LCM), beginning January 2018, continuing as president of Seventy Quorum Nos. 3 and 10
David Anderson: Priesthood training, formation, and support, beginning July 2018, continuing as president of the High Priest Quorum
Rob Borkowski: In a new position to support those calling International Headquarters, beginning March 2018
Carrie Welch: Field support minister for the Southeast Mission Field, beginning December 2017
After USA Leadership Team meetings in February, we will send you additional information about the new missional expressions funds and how these ministers will support the church in the United States. During this transition time, we ask for your prayerful support of these ministers.
Thank you again for your faithful service. During this Advent season of expectant waiting and celebration of Jesus’ birth, may we all remember to share the Living Christ with others.
In God’s grace and love,
Linda L. Booth
