Here at Forward, we live by the words of Jesus in Matthew 21:13 regarding the church, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer’…”

January’s House of Prayer was a powerful night. Hope you will join us for our next House of Prayer this Thursday, February 8th from 7:00-8:00pm at the church.

This is always a special evening of slowing down and quieting our hearts before the Lord. While each prayer night looks different, we always take time to pray scriptures over our lives, our church family, it’s leadership, and the community. See you there!

*No childcare for this event. 

We are so excited for our upcoming meal packing event on Saturday, February 10th!! Volunteers can arrive by 9am. Tables will be set up in the worship center with all the supplies. We will watch a five minute training video on how to pack the meals and then getting packing! See you Saturday, February 10th at the Church!

Whether you are new to the church, have questions about what we believe, or are considering becoming a member of Forward, please join us for our upcoming Membership Class on Sunday, February 25th immediately following the service. Lunch will be provided, so please let us know you are coming by signing up at the Welcome Center.

Parents of forKids’ students, if you would like to stay up with our forKids ministry and any events or happenings, be sure to sign up to receive e-mail updates at the check in station on Sunday!


Sunday School class is every Sunday beginning at 9am in the classroom behind the Worship Center. We are currently studying verse-by-verse through Revelation, chapters 1-3.  All are welcome to join in any Sunday.  Contact Dave Hollander at for more info or questions.


Ladies of Forward, we have another opportunity to serve the ladies at the Breakaway house, which is located just down the road from the church. You can help by providing a meal and visiting for a couple of hours with the ladies that live there.

Our next meal for them will be on Sunday evening, February 18th. We need around 5 women to help bring a meal. There is a sign up sheet at the Welcome Center for this date. Look for future dates in our newsletter. For questions text or call Tonia Hatfield (phone number provided at the Welcome Center).

All men of Forward are invited to join in Tuesday mornings for Bible study. Meeting at Coffee Crossing in downtown New Albany from 7:00-8:00am, the men will be studying through the book of Proverbs.

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.
