Favorite Bible verse: There are too many but here are a few

“You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character], Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation]. Trust [confidently] in the LORD forever [He is your fortress, your shield, your banner], For the LORD GOD is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].” Isaiah 26:3-4 AMP

“Then the Angel of the Lord appeared to him and said: “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.””
Judges 6:12 HCSB

How long have you attended Forward?
Almost 9 years.

How long have you been on staff?
I’ve done the finances since May of 2012. I’ve officially been on staff since January of 2015.

In what ways do you volunteer at Forward?
I volunteer in the Tech Booth running lights and greet when needed. I also help at our Outreach events.

Tell us about a time that was especially meaningful for you in your time of service:
There’s so many, but there are times that stand out like when we were in Georgetown and the Spirit was moving and there was no sermon, just people coming to the altar and the whole service was worship. That was amazing! It’s also amazing to see how the Spirit moves in our congregation when we’re obedient to His promptings. Also, baptisms always bring tears to my eyes.


1 Peter 4:10, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:”

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
  • Currently working on expanding our worship space to provide room for more people (this was always the plan for this area but especially necessary now under COVID-19 response guidelines)
