Men of Forward, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 13th from 9-noon for our Men’s Pancake Breakfast, devotion, and workday. This will be a great opportunity for you to connect and get to know other men in the church. Sign up this Sunday at the Welcome Center and let us know you are coming!




Women of Forward, our One Day Retreat is only 3 weeks away and we hope you are making plans to join us! This event will take place at Forward Church on Saturday, April 27, from 9am-3pm.

For this one day retreat, you can expect wonderful worship and multiple speakers who will be addressing how we walk out faithfulness in marriage, parenting, work, and the community. We have assembled a panel of couples with decades of biblical headship and faithfulness, that will address the increasing assault on the institution of marriage by today’s culture.

We want to invite the Women of Forward to submit questions concerning marriage and the family. You may submit questions anonymously (just drop in the basket at the Welcome Desk) or via email to Lisa Sutherland at or text Lisa at 502-338-8675.

Get registered today!! The cost of the event is only $10. Click on the link below or scan the QR code to register. You will not want to miss this event!

Our next Breakaway Meal is Sunday evening, May 5th. We will need around 5 women to help provide a meal and come out to visit with the women in the Breakaway 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). Sign up this Sunday if you are able to help.

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.
