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
