House of Prayer Night, NEXT Thursday, May 9th from 7-8pm at Forward Church.


We will have Family Dedication on Sunday, May 12th, Mother’s Day.

This a special day in the life of Forward as families stand before the congregation and dedicate their children and family to a Christ-centered life. Parents promise to lead their families and raise their children in ways that honor and glorify God.

If you have a new baby, child, or children that you would like to have dedicated, you can register at the link below. The last day to register is THIS Sunday, May 5th.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Brittany Blanton at

If you are a senior or have a senior in your household, please contact our Propel High Pastor, Blake Belles, at so we can be sure to recognize them during service that day.


Women of Forward, ages 65+, you are cordially invited to attend a special brunch on Wednesday, May 22 at Forward Church. Sign up this Sunday at the Welcome Desk and don’t forget to save the date!


Thank you to all the ladies who signed up to serve the women at Breakaway.

The next Breakaway Meal will be Sunday evening, June 2nd. 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.

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.
