Meet the Staff

Bill Rigby

Minister of Music

     I have loved Forest United Methodist since the first time I walked through the doors, in 1971, almost 50 years ago. My wife and I raised our children in this beautiful church. Both of our children were married here. FUMC is so dear to me! 

     I have been blessed to serve as Director of Music here for 18 years. What a blessing God offers us through music! God continues to bless our church with a wonderful music program. I am so thankful to be a part of Forest United Methodist Church.



Rebecca Hollingsworth

Administrative Assistant

I was born and raised in Forest. My husband and I have been married almost 26 years. God blessed us with three beautiful daughters. Cheyanne Elizabeth accomplished her earthly tasks at a very early age. Suzanne Rebecca married Jacob Waggoner, from Morton, almost two years ago. She is a junior in college. Hannah Kathryn is at Meridian Community College in their dental hygiene program.

There is one thing that I have always heard… The Lord doesn’t put more on you than you can handle.  That is simply not true. The Lord will put more on you than you can handle, but he will not put more on you that HE can not get you through. We can not do it on our own.

I pray that the Lord will lead, guide, and direct us in everything that we do.
