*** COVID-19 ***

We are continuing to adjust to changing circumstances and guidance with regards to the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, our Communion exhortation, Communion service, and annual church cleaning are all postponed indefinitely, and will be rescheduled at an appropriate time. Other church events, including regular Sunday and Wednesday evening services, the Easter program, and Good Friday service, are cancelled. Also, all Single Group events are cancelled until further notice.

Beginning this Wednesday, March 18, THE CONGREGATION WILL NOT BE ASSEMBLING AT CHURCH, but we will plan to have Wednesday services starting at 7:30 pm, and Sunday morning services starting at 10:00 am, available from Forrest via live streaming through AC Central, the church website, and the phone line. We will not be streaming Sunday afternoon services.

We are looking for ways to remain connected as a congregation. Please look for ways to help us remain close as a church family, and share any suggestions with the ministers. We will share additional information as it develops.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10

The Forrest Apostolic Christian Church, in accordance with the beliefs of Apostolic Christian Church of America, believes in the infallibility of the Bible, and is founded on faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The purpose of the church is to teach the Gospel message of salvation, to nurture the believer, to preserve sound doctrine and to serve others in the likeness of Christ.

  • We will have Good Friday service starting at 7:20 pm on Friday, instead of our usual midweek evening service.

  • As we observe Passion Week, this may be an opportunity to listen to previous Easter Programs or other special services.

  • As children of God, we want to be good examples of His love, integrity, and generosity. Anyone interested may contact Bro. Marvin for a document from the Elder Committee with some helpful thoughts to consider in these responsibilities in regards to the CARES Act.

  • The LifePoints Gospel Sing, scheduled for April 25, will now be only online, at midwestgospelsing.org. It will feature the Anderson family, as well as the testimony of a LifePoints resident.

  • We are encouraging all to be more intentional in prayer...for those who are sick, for those who have lost loved ones, for a cure, for those in authority, for ways we can help and be a light, and for the lost to be reached.

  • "Thank You" Note from Fairview Haven: The Fairview Haven team thanks all for the many generous donations of supplies and time over the past two weeks. We are humbled that when we have made a need known, you have filled it. Volunteer seamstresses have made over 500 cloth face masks for our team and residents to wear during this challenging time. The need for them here is nearly met, but we can send them other places where needed, if there is still interest in making them. If you have questions or need supplies, please contact Sis. Kara Blunier.

  • This Wednesday evening a Conference report will be given.

  • Also, Bro. Marvin has another important matter that he is planning to bring to the congregation this Wednesday evening, and would appreciate everyone's attendance. This is not a member meeting.
