WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY UPDATE

March 24, 2017

Update hopes the guys on the Men’s Retreat are having a great time. Do you think they secretly do crafts and watch cheesy Lifetime Channel movies and then make a pact not to tell anyone? Hmm, guess we’ll never know. Have a great weekend, and check out the latest news at Forefront:

  • spring picnic

    Mark your calendars to join us on Sunday, April 9 for our Annual Spring Picnic! This year we’ll be meeting at Mt. Trashmore (sites 1-3) from 11:30-2:30. Enjoy burgers, dogs, sides, desserts, cornhole and lots more! Don't miss it!

  • easter at forefront

    This Easter, know that we are here for you. We all have a mess. Whatever you've been through, we want to let you know... "me too". Please join us on Easter Sunday, April 16 as we talk about the One who takes messes and turns them into a beautiful message. We will be offering FIVE services to choose from: 8:30, 10, 11:30, 5, and 6:30. You can visit forefront.org/easter for more info, and be thinking about who you need to invite!


  • current series

    Prayer isn’t something that you just know how to do. We need to learn, practice, see examples of it, and be taught what God wants from us. We may have a weird idea about what prayer is or isn’t. But truth be told, it’s simply a conversation with God. In our series "Conversations With God," we’re tackling everything there is to know about prayer.

  • 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!

  • bonus series on the app!

    As we plan for our yearly teaching series for Sundays, there are series that don't get scheduled. Our leadership team loved many of the series ideas and wanted to get the content to you. These videos will be released every two weeks and available exclusively through the Forefront Church mobile app under the “Watch” tab. If you haven’t downloaded the Forefront App yet, click here to get started. Don’t forget to enable notifications so you’ll know when new info is posted!

  • 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: $15,079.78

    We know “the church” is actually a living, breathing community of believers, not just a building. But the fact of the matter is, our building itself is important and we need to take care of it. Whether it’s paying routine utility bills, dealing with unexpected repairs, or investing in special design elements to make it appealing, the costs all add up. We rely on generous and consistent giving to keep our building in great shape, so we can continue to welcome new people to learn about God. Every time we paint a wall, change a bulb, mow the grass, etc, it’s done so we can continue our mission to help others find and follow Jesus. If you attend Forefront regularly please give regularly. We appreciate every penny! You can give on Sundays by cash/check in the buckets during offering or online at Forefront.org/giving. We couldn’t do it without you!
