WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY UPDATE

October 13, 2017

Happy Friday the 13th! Update doesn’t believe in superstitious dates; she’s just glad it’s Friday. But if this date creeps you out just think of fluffy bunnies and pretty clouds. Unless you’re afraid the bunny will attack you and the clouds will envelop you in fear, then think of something else. BOO! Just kidding. Now go check out all the not-creepy things at Forefront!

  • come serve at pin!

    PIN Ministry is an amazing organization that provides meals, clothing, hygiene supplies and medical care to the homeless of Virginia Beach. This Sunday, October 15 we’re sending a team of  Forefronters to serve at PIN from 1:30-4pm. We need people to dish out meals, pass out clothes, help clean up, or just go wherever they can use you. If you’d like to help, please email dan@forefront.org for more details and directions. Thanks!

  • blood drive

    Did you know that someone needs blood every 2 seconds in the U.S.? You can be part of saving lives by donating blood at our next blood drive! The Bloodmobile will be visiting Forefront on Sunday, November 5 from 8am-12:30pm. Just go to redcrossblood.org and enter 23453 under Find a Blood Drive. Then scroll until you find Forefront and you can choose a time to give! Thanks for being a hero!

  • current series

    Fear can keep us from doing anything. It keeps us from branching out and trusting God with all the places in our lives. In this series, we’ll learn how we can thrive in freedom instead of fear. Join us this Sunday at 8:30, 10, 11:30 or 5 as we continue our series Monsters Under My Bed.

  • 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: $14,520.93

    We have lots of ongoing expenses that we tend to take for granted. We are always fixing or replacing things that wear out, keeping up general maintenance on the building and grounds, and supplying it with everything from toilet paper to communion cups. We couldn't cover these routine needs without your consistent and generous giving! Thank you to everyone who gives regularly so we can keep our building humming and keep us moving toward our mission of helping people find and follow Jesus. You can give Sunday in the buckets or online anytime at forefront.org/giving
