We want to recognize and welcome some more new members!

Dave and Joyce Hollander have decided to make Forward Church their home church! We’re very happy and excited to have you all as a part of the Forward Church Family!

Forward Fall Fest

Bonfire, hayrides, and so much fun we can’t even list it all! We will be having a fall festival off campus on Sunday, October 24th from 3:00-7:00! It will be in Elizabeth, about 20-25 minutes from the church.

Get it on your calendars so you can be sure to join us! If you plan to attend, we ask that you sign up just so we have an idea of how many people to provide food for.

The address to the location will be provided in your confirmation e-mail 🙂

We will have a special activity in which we will need candy, so we will be taking up candy donations as we have done in the years past for our trunk-or-treats. If you would like to provide a bag of candy for the Fall Fest, we will start collecting them NEXT Sunday by the forKids check-in station!

Kids are welcomed to dress up for all the fun! And all you need to bring is a lawn chair and if you’d like to, you can bring a non-heated appetizer type food.

We hope to see you there!



THIS Sunday, September 26th! We’ll be gathering out in our parking lot to enjoy a meal together as well as some games and a great time of fellowship right after service!

We’ll provide the meal but if you’d like to bring a dessert to share you can but you don’t have to 🙂


If you didn’t get to make it to our last Lunch with the Leaders session, we’re having another one on Sunday, October 17th!

This will be a time for those who are new to Forward to come and get to know the leaders of the church and have lunch with them right after service! Click the button below to sign up!



Come help us clean the streets of New Albany October 7th-10th!

Not only is this a great way for us to serve our community but the money earned from it is used to support our Propel youth ministries for the following year!

You can sign up at the Welcome Center Sunday morning!

Contact Blake Belles at with any questions.

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.


If you are interested in becoming a member of Forward, contact Pastor Neil at!

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.
