Gingerbread Bash

The Gingerbread Bash is coming up soon! Saturday, December 3rd from 4:00-6:00! This will be a time for families to come together, build a gingerbread nativity and complete various activities, all while keeping the focus on the true meaning of Christmas! If you would like to attend, this will be an event that you need to sign up for so that we’re sure to have enough supplies. The deadline to sign up will be on NEXT Sunday, November 27th.


CHRISTMAS TEA tickets are on sale THIS SUNDAY at the Welcome Center!

This is the LAST SUNDAY to sign your kids up for the forKids Choir! Kids ages 4 through 5th grade can sign up out at the Welcome Center.


The Men’s Retreat will now spend Jan 25-28 in sunny Florida!  Our new location is just outside of Panama City.  You will not want to miss this time of deepening relationships with God and the Men of Forward.

The cost will now be $275 per person which will include lodging, and meals.  Please do not let the cost keep you from going.  If you need help paying for the trip, scholarships will be available.  Anything that you already paid for the men’s retreat can either be refunded or applied to the new retreat.  Spots will be limited, so sign up as soon as possible!

A basic schedule is to leave Indiana early am Jan 25th, spend the night of 25th-27th, return home from Florida early am Jan 28th.


Pastor Neil talked this past Sunday about a Friends Forever Fund that we’re starting. If you missed the sermon, you can check it out through our website, Youtube and Facebook. To summarize, we will have a year end Friends Forever Fund ceremony on Christmas Day. Please be praying about how you can be a shrewd manager of what God has given to you, in order to make a generous gift to this fund. You can begin giving immediately if you’d like. You can go online, click giving, click on “FFF” in the dropdown menu to designate the giving, and start giving today. Or you can choose to save up/raise money and give it all as one sum on Christmas Day. On Christmas Day, we will celebrate what God has done and is doing through the generous hearts of His people!

  • Goal is to raise $100,000
  • $90,000 will directly pay down the mortgage debt
  • $10,000 will be sent to RIP Debt to pay off an estimated $1 Million dollars of medical debt in our area!
  • Moving forward, 100% of all money donated to the Friends Forever Fund will pay down debt until the mortgage is paid off.


We will be SKIPPING this coming Wednesday night, November 23rd and we will finish up on November 30th.

Monday nights will continue as usual. You can join them next week when we skip but there WILL NOT be childcare.

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.
