We are partnering with CrossRoads Mission for a mission trip to Eastern Kentucky this fall. Eastern Kentucky has experienced record flooding the last three years and there is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people by reaching out with the love of Christ.

The trip will be October 18-21 with a cost of $250/person. The cost will include lodging, food and project money. If you are interested in going on this trip please sign up at the Welcome Center.

Stop by and join us anytime tonight between 7:00-8:30 for our House of Prayer Night!

At Forward we believe that by making prayer a priority of the Church, we will see the power of God at work. Each month we are committing to open the building as a time set aside to seek the Lord. All you need to do is come with hearts ready to pray.

Families are welcome to pray together as there will not be childcare.

The playground will be closed as this is a focused and dedicated time of prayer.

Chest Of Joash

The Chest of Joash provides an opportunity to give above and beyond the normal tithe. The money from it goes directly to work needed done on our building.

In 2 Chronicles 24 we find Joash repairing the temple and a chest was set outside of it for people to bring a tithe that was used to pay the workers restoring the temple. Verse 10 says, “And all the princes and all the people rejoiced and brought their tax and dropped it into the chest until they had finished.”

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have joyfully donated just as the Israelite officials and people did!

You can give to the Chest of Joash by clicking the button below and selecting “Chest of Joash” in the drop down menu.
