WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY UPDATE

July 21, 2017

Update heard it’s going to feel like 105 today. Can we just all reject that offer and stop this madness? Can we write a stern letter or make some protest signs or something?? Sigh. Before you go out and melt in the heat take a minute to check out the latest happenings at Forefront!

  • free Parenting class

    Let’s face it, no matter their age, we could all use a little guidance now and then on raising our kids. Be sure to join us on Saturday, July 29 from 9am-2pm for our next Forefront Life University class, "Parental Guidance Required". This is a free class that includes lunch, a t-shirt, childcare and class materials. Email dan@forefront.org to sign up, or fill out a connection card on Sunday.

  • current series: altars

    Life moves so fast that there are moments we completely forget to acknowledge. Sometimes we recognize them, but don't pause to thank the One who got us through that moment and to the other side. In this series we've been exploring the beauty of when people following God came out on the other side and stopped to pay tribute to the One who walked it out with them. See you this Sunday for Altars.

  • project jump start

    Every year we partner with local nonprofit Aidnow for their Project Jump Start event, which provides clothing, school supplies, haircuts and more for the hundreds of homeless students in the Virginia Beach school system. This event helps sends these kids back to school feeling confident and ready for the new year! There are a couple ways you can help! You can sign up to work at the event itself on August 16, or you can purchase and donate an Old Navy gift card to help us buy clothes for the event. Drop your gift cards in the Aidnow bin in our lobby, or visit Aidnow’s signup page to help at the event. Thanks for all your help!!

  • 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: $15,050.88

    As summer rolls along we love to see everyone enjoying vacations, beach time, cookouts, etc. 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. 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!
