Class begins THIS SUNDAY!! If you’ve ever been intimidated or confused by the Book of Revelation, then this study is for you! Sunday we begin an 8 week verse-by-verse study focusing on the seven churches of Revelation found in chapters 1-3. We’ll be studying the characteristics of each church and how it applies to us today.

Class begins at 9am and is open to all! If you will need childcare, please reach out to Brittany Blanton at

Contact Dave Hollander at with any study questions.


forKids’ Parents, we are excited to be starting a new curriculum this week in our Clubhouse, God City, and Dig classes! We will be using Answers in Genesis ABC curriculum for our Clubhouse, Answers in Genesis Mrs. C and Me in God City and Answers in Genesis Answers Bible Curriculum for Kids in the Dig. There are activities for kids to be able to do at home (or as a family) throughout the week.

Beginning this Sunday, there will be a QR code OUTSIDE of each classroom with access to these documents that you can use from your phone or computer as discussion topics or print at home for them to complete. These QR codes will be updated each week to go with the lesson the kids learned. It’s going to be a great year for our students in learning and growing in Christ and their love for God’s Word!

The North American Mission Board has produced this booklet to guide you in praying for one person in your life you hope to see come into a relationship with Jesus. This prayer guide will help you know what to pray and give specific Scriptures as well.  If you didn’t get a chance to pick up one this past Sunday, grab one this Sunday and begin praying for your one!

Men of Forward, jump in this Monday, January 8th as we begin a new study on the book of Philippians. No prep necessary, just show up!

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.
