– Appalachia Mission Trip – 
With the 2020 trip to Belize being cancelled due to Covid 19 restrictions, our new plan is to make a local trip within the USA to Appalachia on June 12-June 18, 2021.

The Appalachian region presents many opportunities for ministry. The people of Appalachia are a hard-working, close-knit, family-first, hospitality-oriented group of people. However,  hardship is widespread, due to a massive loss of jobs from the decline of mining, steel, and several manufacturing industries. The shortage of gainful employment has led to severe poverty in many communities, and as a result, the effects of substance abuse, food insecurity, and homelessness has taken its toll. Many in that region have an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness.

We will be going in an effort to bring hope to those in need.  Those on the trip will have an opportunity to serve in some tangible ways that could vary from service projects, to children’s ministry, to service ministry.

The trip will cost $545 per person plus travel expenses to the Appalachia area.

We will plan to rent vans to drive to the destination.

If you would like to go, click the button below to register! If you have any questions there’s a comments section you can fill out on the registration form.

The deadline to sign up will be January 31st. 

We will contact you once you have registered to schedule payments and discuss more details.

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!

With money that has been raised in the Chest of Joash over the past 3 years ($50,089 since January 2017!), we have been able to

  • Build a ramp off of our sidewalk for those with a handicap
  • Dedicate parking spots in our parking lot with Handicap and First Time Visitor signs
  • Seal our roof to repair several leaks
  • Paint the exterior of the building along with the barn wood design and Forward Church signage
  • Build classrooms in our back hallway for Bible studies and other classes to take place
  • Pave and stripe our parking lot
  • Expand our worship space to provide room for more people during COVID 19 social distancing restrictions
