Spring is finally on the way! This Sunday we SPRING FORWARD!! So don’t forget Forward family, to set your clocks one hour ahead and set your alarms, so you aren’t late for service. See you Sunday at 10:30am.

This Sunday is WESTERN DAY in our forKids ministry! All kids and volunteers, throw on those bandanas, cowboy hats and boots and join us as we March into Fun!

Our next House of Prayer is THIS Thursday evening, March 14th from 7:00-8:00pm at the church.
*No childcare for this event, however, families are welcome. 

On Saturday, March 23rd from 2:00-4:00pm, join us for Easter Jam! This will be a forKids family event where we will have games, activities, and prizes, celebrating that Jesus is alive! Let us know you’re planning to come by registering using the link below.

Easter Jam Registration


Our next Breakaway meal will be Sunday, March 24th. We need around 5 women to help provide a meal and come out to visit with the women in the home for a couple of hours. This is a great opportunity to serve the ladies literally in our backyard. For questions, text or call Tonia Hatfield (phone number provided at the Welcome Center). You can sign up there today.




Meeting at the church from 6:30-8pm every Wednesday. The study is called “True Spirituality: Becoming a Romans 12 Christian” by Chip Ingram. Reach out to Lisa Sutherland at with any questions.


Women of Forward: the Womens Ministry is excited to announce a one-day retreat which will take place at Forward Church on Saturday, April 27, from 9am-3pm.

We will be focusing on Jeremiah 29:4-7,  with the theme of Faithfulness. You may have noticed that our world is crazy and upside down!  In spite of this, God’s people are called to be faithful in all spheres of influence He has placed us, both inside and outside the home. What does it look like to be faithful as we build, plant, and seek? We are going to unpack faithfulness in marriage & parenting, secular workplaces, seeking the welfare of the city we live in, and much, much, more as we also exhort one another toward our faithful God. We hope you will make plans to join us!


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.


Areté: Cultivating a Life of Virtue

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.
