Web forwarding is a way for your domain to be pointed to another web
address or page. You can choose to have your domain name remain in the
address bar, which is called “framed web forwarding". Alternatively, you
can choose to display the new address, which is known as “non-framed
For Example if you own www.windowstipsclub.co.uk
and also www.windowstipsclub.com
and they are registered at different hosting websites then you can set
up web-forwarding on the first server to point to the domain where the
full website is.
Many companies do this that register the same website name on all the
domains if you also own www.windowstipsclub.net
this can also be setup to forward to your dot COM of the same name it
is a good idea however to host all the addresses at the same host you
may get discounts
You can access this on your weblog through the settings + publishing
tab and select either the google apps OR your own custom domain name
you will have to logon to the company that you used and change some of
the DNS settings to do this correctly.

It isn't complicated. You'll need to register a new domain name, and make sure that it's followed by .org. I'll explain all that below.
But first, I'll assume your church already has it's own domain name, followed by ".com". For example, mychurch.com, gocatholic.com, or maybe even something like baptists-r-us.com.
If you already have your own "dotcom", you'll need to register your domain name again, this time with .org on the end. Then once you've done so, the company that hosts your domain can help you create the new email address, usually from their website.
If you need more help with this, post again and I can explain further.
