God tells us in Isaiah 43:1, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine!”
This is great news!
At Fort Hill we strive to help our youth understand what it means to belong to God. We take great joy in helping them discover that being called by name and belonging to God means that God loves them unconditionally. In belonging to God, our youth belong to the church. We strive to help our youth understand that they are not only the future of the church, but part of the church NOW. The Body of Christ needs their energy, enthusiasm, leadership, love and passion today! How wonderful it is when youth discover that they are loved unconditionally and are needed in the church today. Join us at Fort Hill Presbyterian Church and find out!
