This is the LAST Sunday to purchase Forward Gear!

Check out the Welcome Center to fill out an order form! Both the pullover hoodies and zip hoodies are $30. Payments will need to be collected along with the order forms.


We want to thank everyone for generously giving to support the ministry of Forward Church in the past year!

Scripture is clear that The LORD will bless you to be a blessing for His Kingdom work, and we have certainly been blessed by you this year!

We know that at the end of the year there are many who look for non-profit organization needs to donate to as a year end gift.

If you would like to make a year end donation to Forward Church, 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
  • Online at
  • Text to Give by texting any amount to 84321 and follow the prompts

Again we thank you for your joyful and sacrificial giving!


We will be hosting a Belize Mission Trip Fundraiser in January!

There will be a silent auction and lunch after service on Sunday, January 23rd.

Make plans to stay after church that day as this is a great way to help those from our Forward Church family that are going to share the love and good news of Jesus with the people of Belize.

The lunch will be offered for a donation that will go to help with the trip cost.

If anyone would like to bring a soup, salad, sandwich tray or dessert to donate for the lunch, get with Beth Grider. She can be reached at


WHAT AM I? Stay tuned for the next 2 weeks for more clues!

Due to the Governor’s latest orders, we are no longer enforcing that face masks be worn into and throughout the building. This will be left up to each individuals preferences as to whether or not you would like to wear one.

We will continue to watch for any applicable changes to this order in the future by local or state authorities.

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.
