WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY UPDATE

April 21, 2017


Update would like to remind you that tomorrow is Earth Day, so do something nice for the Earth! If you don’t, Earth will lay a big guilt trip on you for forgetting its special day, and you’ll never hear the end of it. So go green, but first take a look at all the great happenings going on at Forefront!

  • "what's Next?" lunch

    If you are new to Forefront and are wondering what the next steps of your faith journey are, please plan to come to our welcome lunch this Sunday, April 23 at 12:30. Maybe you want to meet new people. Maybe you want to volunteer somewhere. Maybe you just want to talk to someone about exploring your faith a little further. Whatever it is, we’ll talk through some ways that you and your family can get plugged in. Free childcare will be provided. Please email info@forefront.org to rsvp so we know how many to expect. Hope to see you there!

  • Pray for Vietnam team

    Pray for our mission team on their way to Vietnam! They are heading to the Ta Phin area to love and serve the school and community there. Way to go, team!


  • questions about baptism?

    Baptism is an awesome moment when someone decides to publicly declare their commitment to God. If you’ve been thinking about taking that step and would like to ask some questions or talk it over with someone, please email us at info@forefront.org or fill out a Connection Card and we will call you to talk about it.

  • an easy way to help

    If you donate to Forefront online, there is a really simple way for you to help the church spread our resources even farther. When you give through our website there is an option labeled “Cover Our Processing Fees.” If you would click that when you donate it will help us tremendously. The fees are small for each person (1% for echecks, 3% for credit cards), but it adds up when Forefront has to absorb it all. If we all help pay our own fee, we’ll see hundreds more dollars going toward the mission of Forefront each month. We’ve already seen the benefit from those of you who have started doing this. Thank you so much for your donations!

  • NEW TO FOREFRONT?

    If you are new to Forefront we want to hear from you! This Sunday please fill out one of our Connection Cards and drop it in the offering bucket. Or, if you’re feeling really adventurous you can bring it to the Get Connected table and we’ll give you a free gift! Don’t worry, no one will stalk you or force an awkward hug on you; we’d just like to send you some info on our church. Thanks for checking us out!

  • WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

    Every week in this section we’ll feature our budgeted needs and most recent donation totals, along with some thoughts on how your giving impacts our church.

    Weekly Projected Budget: $10,000

    This Week's Donations: $17,113.07

    At Forefront one of the things we work at really hard is communicating well. So, we use all kinds of different ways to let people know about God, Forefront, and all of the things we have going on here. We market the message through print media, our website, Facebook, from the stage, our text message service, through our database, and in our video announcements. Our goal is to speak to everyone that comes in contact with Forefront. The one overarching message we want to send whether we are marketing a picnic, a series, or an event is that the person is loved by a God that cares deeply for them. We want to communicate that clearly, dynamically, and in a way all can understand. It's the most important message in the world. The ability to communicate effectively takes financial resources. Without our collective generosity, it would be almost impossible to communicate the love of God so broadly. Thank you for your selfless devotion to God, our church, and to the person that needs God! If you haven't started to donate consistently, there are multiple ways you can do so. You can give on Sundays by cash/check in the buckets during offering, through our app,  or online at Forefront.org/giving.
