This past weekend Pastor Neil preached about how true JOY is found when we put Jesus first, Others second and Yourself last.

This Christmas season we’re partnering with Nomad Church Collective to help meet the needs of those in our community who don’t have homes to go to this Christmas.

If you would like to join us as we help others this season, we will be collecting the following items at the church over the next 2 weeks

  • Drinkable, pull tab cans of soup
  • Waterproof or water resistant winter gloves
  • Winter Coats – Large or XL
  • Hand Warmers
  • Sterno fuel cans

You can also give online through the button below and selecting “Home for Christmas” under the “General” tab. All of the money collected will go to purchasing these items.



We want to thank all of you for your sacrificial giving throughout this year!

Some of you may be looking for a non-profit organization to donate to as a tax deductible year end gift.

If you would like to make a year end donation to Forward, you can give several ways:

  • Check made to Forward Church and sent to 341 Vincennes St, New Albany IN 47150.  Postmarked on or before Dec. 31st
  • Drop a check or cash in the Giving Box in the Worship Center

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

You can give to the Chest of Joash by clicking the button below and selecting “Chest of Joash” in the drop down menu.
