WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY UPDATE

August 18, 2017

Update is excited about the eclipse on Monday! But if she hears word about any of you trying to look at it without glasses Update will smack you on the back of the head. (In love, of course.) This has been a very special public service announcement. Be safe and check out the latest at Forefront!

  • current series: kidnapped

    Our children have been taken over by a culture and world with heavy agendas. What they want them to believe, say, and do is clear each time we look around. It’s time to take back the reins and lead our children to what is true about them and what God wants for their future. And this isn’t just for kids. Adults can be easily swayed to believe things about themselves and this world that aren’t true. Who is influencing and possibly kidnapping you? Join us this Sunday at 8:30, 10, 11:30 or 5 as we continue this important series.

  • collide field trip

    Hey, parents of middle and high school students! On Sunday, August 27 our Collide students and leaders will be heading down to Elizabeth City, NC to see a performance by Brock Gill, an illusionist with a powerful message. We’ll leave the church at 4pm and will return by 8:30pm. Please send along some cash for some after party ice cream. Sign-ups are required by August 22 by emailing becky@forefront.org.

  • forefront small groups

    If you’re not in one of our Small Groups yet, now is the perfect time to think about joining one! We have groups all over town on various nights of the week, and they will be starting up again in September after a summer break. In a small group you can meet other Forefronters, learn about God and the Bible, eat, have fun, and just generally share life together! Stay tuned for more info on our small groups coming soon! You can also email dan@forefront.org if you have any questions.

  • thank you!

    Thank you to everyone who volunteered and donated to Project Jump Start this week! Hundreds of kids can now start the new school year with new clothes and supplies. If you missed out but would still like to help, you can make a donation at aidnow.org. Thanks!

  • an easier way to get connected!

    Have you checked out our digital Get Connected table yet? 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: $12,931.01

    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!
