Saturday, February 10th is our big meal packing day for Mission of Hope. Again, as a reminder, we are packing 30,000 meals for hungry Haitian children thanks to your generous giving through the Friends Forever Fund.

Forward Church Family, you have exceeded our expectations and we have over 100 people signed up to serve!! If you haven’t signed up and would still like to serve, please visit the Welcome Center after the service. This will be the last weekend to sign up.
The t-shirt order has already been placed, however we have ordered a few extras. These will be for those who sign up and will be on a first come first serve basis.

Volunteers should arrive at 9am and we will be finished around noon.  See you Saturday February 10th at the Church!

Our next Membership Class will be Sunday, February 25th immediately following the church service in the Propel room. In this class you will learn the history of Forward Church and what we believe. Lunch will be provided. All are welcome to attend. Sign up at the Welcome Center this Sunday.

**REMINDER: End of the year tithing statements have all been mailed out. We still have several statements that we have no addresses for. If you have given in tithes this year and you do not receive a statement, let us know.

If you have moved or if we do not have your current address in our database, please stop by the Welcome Center and leave your information or contact Lisa Sutherland at

Thank you!

Ladies of Forward, we have another opportunity to serve the ladies at the Breakaway house, which is located just down the road from the church. You can help by providing a meal and visiting for a couple of hours with the ladies that live there.

Our next meal for them will be on Sunday evening, February 18th. We need around 5 women to help bring a meal. There is a sign up sheet at the Welcome Center for this date. Look for future dates in our newsletter. For questions text or call Tonia Hatfield (phone number provided at the Welcome Center).


Sunday School class is every Sunday beginning at 9am in the classroom behind the Worship Center. We are currently studying verse-by-verse through Revelation, chapters 1-3.  All are welcome to join in any Sunday.  Contact Dave Hollander at for more info or questions.


Join us next month for House of Prayer night on Thursday, February 8th from 7:00-8:00pm at the church. “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.

All men of Forward are invited to join in Tuesday mornings for Bible study. Meeting at Coffee Crossing in downtown New Albany from 7:00-8:00am, the men will be studying through the book of Proverbs.

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.
