Who We Are
'Love God, Love Others, Make Disciples'
Forestdale is a member of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference, a denomination that believes strongly in the autonomy of each local church under Christ. Our governance is based on the Congregational model, meaning that about a quarter of our 100 members serve in some office in rotating terms.
Forestdale has always been a missional church, investing more in people than in buildings or programs. It dedicates between 10 and 15 percent of its budget to a variety of missions. The simple motto we live by: “love God, love others, make disciples.”
We are a church composed of people from many different faith backgrounds who are interested in spiritual growth and maturity. We enjoy worship characterized by lots of singing, hearing God’s word, and praying together. We enjoy fellowship and Bible study. We welcome visitors warmly. We are more than “Sundays only,” committed to integrating what we learn and experience when gathered into our everyday lives and in service to the community around us.
Forestdale Community Church is a place of family, where all are welcome and we encourage visitors with a warm greeting. The church numbers around 100 regular attendees, with members of all ages, races, ethnicities and backgrounds.
