We want to welcome Gwendolyn Gatewood-Saylor to the Forward Church family! We’re so happy that you have decided to make Forward Church your church home!


PS2 – Prayer, Study, Support

PS2 PIZZA PARTY!! – our men’s Bible study group is having a fall “Jumpstart” PIZZA PARTY on Monday, September 13th! If you haven’t made it to one yet, this will be great time to start! They meet at the church Monday nights from 6:30-8:00. We ask that you sign up for this one by September 12th so they know how much pizza to get. You can sign up at the table in the Atrium this Sunday!


Our women’s Bible study groups are wrapping up and will be resuming in a couple weeks.

In the meantime we would like to ask all of our women to take a survey to help our Women’s Team better fit you and your schedule! There’s only 9 questions and won’t take very long at all but will help tremendously as they begin to plan the next sessions! Click the button below to take the survey.


Cars and Coffee

Cars and Coffee will be the 3rd Saturday of every month!

You can bring your car or just come for a cup of coffee and walk through the classics!

Call Frank Grider at 502-741-0918 for more info!


Due to the Governor’s latest orders, we are no longer enforcing that face masks be worn into and throughout the building. This will be left up to each individuals preferences as to whether or not you would like to wear one.

We will continue to watch for any applicable changes to this order in the future by local or state authorities.

Why We Give How to Give

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.
