WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY UPDATE

June 23, 2017


Update hopes all the middle and high schoolers have fun at the pool party this Saturday! Please allow Update to get all her mom advice out now in one shot. “No running by the pool! No swimming right after eating! No splashing unsuspecting adults trying to relax!” Ok, that about covers it. Have fun, and check out the latest news happening at Forefront:

  • Collide: pool Party

    Hey middle and high schoolers, we’re kicking off summer with some pizza by the pool! Join us this Saturday, June 24 from 4-9pm! Bring a modest bathing suit, towel, and your favorite snack to share. It's happening at 2629 Cypress Vine Ct, VB, 23456. Questions? Email becky@forefront.org. Hope to see ya there!

  • parents' night out

    Hey parents, need a break from those little people living in your house? Drop them off with us this Saturday, June 24 from 5-8:30pm. You can go out to eat, read a book, or just sit still and enjoy the quiet! We will be accepting donations for our Mexico Mission Trip at the door. Click here to sign up.

  • we need sunblock and bug spray!

    During the month of June we are collecting sunblock (SPF 30 or higher) and deep woods bug spray to donate to PIN (People In Need) Ministry, a local organization that serves the homeless community in Virginia Beach. Just drop your items in the PIN bin in the lobby any Sunday this month. Thank you for making the hot weather a little more bearable for those living outside this summer.

  • current series: Tribes

    We all need people. People who just kind of get us. Who are your people? God created you for relationships. We all need a tribe. In this series we are exploring what the Bible says about you and I being in a Tribe. Join us at 8:30, 10, 11:30 or 5.

  • an easier way to get connected!

    We’re excited to introduce our new digital Get Connected table! Just like our Get Connected table in the lobby on Sunday, it’s a quick place to connect with the church to get info, sign up for an event, request prayer, etc. But now you can do it from anywhere just by visiting forefrontchurch.info or going to the “Connect” tab on your Forefront Church App. The cards will change weekly, just like the info at the table. Check it out!

  • 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: $11,000

    This Week's Donations: $14,118.70

    Welcome summer! School's ending and the kids are happy! Time for vacation, the beach, family trips, and a bunch of other awesome things! Here at Forefront, we're going to keep things rolling each Sunday and add some cool stuff like camp, special classes, and other events! But one thing we also face each summer is a decrease in weekly giving. To remain strong, vibrant, and able to minister to you, new people, and our community, we all need to continue our strong and consistent giving patterns. You may want to consider a recurring online donation or an auto draft from your bank sent directly to Forefront. Financial solubility is a real challenge for a thriving church like Forefront. We are having an amazing year. People are coming and coming to know God! Lives are being changed forever! Let's keep it going! To everyone calling Forefront home - thank you! Your generous and consistent giving is changing lives!
