Just for families!

We're keeping it simple for the summer, so we've created a set of cards (one for each week) to help your family R.A.D.ically connect with Jesus! Enjoy this simple time together each week, when it makes the most sense for your household.

CONNECT SMALL 

Intentional time with your people.

We've created this digital download of resources and ideas to help you meaningfully (re)connect with God, those in your family, neighbourhood and our church.

NEW miniseries

Back to the Future

We are preparing to mark a new season as God's church at Forest Brook this fall. We'll return to in-person gatherings and remain online. We are claiming this season as an opportunity to reset and recenter all things Forest Brook, on Jesus.  So we take a pause here to consider what God sees for our future, and remember His heart for the church. 

summer series...

This is Us: Loving God & Loving Others in 2021

We were designed for relationship- with God and one another! We'll take a look at how our relationships with those around us have changed, and what God is calling us into at this moment in history. 

We heard from local leading voices with expertise, experience and passion for healthy, Jesus-centered relationships in all aspects of life. You can catch any of the messages on YouTube, featuring guests Roxanne Francis, Shawn James, Greg Paul and Shireen Spencer.
