Forest Hill Presbyterian Church outdoor worship is Aug. 16

Forest Hill Presbyterian Church will hold its annual Outdoor Worship Service and Community Supper at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 16. Friends and neighbors are invited to enjoy a thought-provoking sermon, along with music by Mother Willie Mae Wright and the Wright Family Singers, a popular Cleveland gospel and praise group.

After the service, a free supper of hamburgers and hot dogs with all the trimmings, fresh fruit, baked beans, coleslaw and desserts will be provided by members of the church.

According to Pastor John Lentz, the spirit-filled service will include time for audience testimonies “so anything could happen!” On a more serious note, he added that when “communities and neighborhoods gather for celebration and praise, they’re better equipped to handle the more difficult times.”

The informal service will be held in the church’s rear courtyard where children can enjoy the playground or join in the enthusiastic singing. Middle- and high-school students will have a chance to meet Keon Abner, Forest Hill’s new director of youth ministries.

Forest Hill Presbyterian Church is located across from Forest Hill Park, at 3031 Monticello Blvd. For more information, call 216-321-2660 or visit
