Youth 5-12th gradesWhere:
Forest Park Family Life Center and Youth RoomsWhen:
6:00 - 7:30 pmLeaders:
Tim Benjamin, Brenda Miller, and Joni Wireman
Recently there have been a lot of hard things happening in our local community (drugs, suicide, and other peer pressures). We, as leaders, want kids to feel like they matter, are special, loved and accepted in a world that doesn't express that very well. We'd like to address some of these topics, but feel it needs to be age appropriate, therefore, this year we are planning to split the groups 5th - 7th grade and 8th - 12th grade. During our hour and half time we plan on having time for a lesson, meal, game and weekly mission opportunity. We want to provide a safe and fun environment for connection and friendships to grow in Christ and with one another.Great Job!!!

Volunteers Needed for Our Children's Ministry.
Please find time to help in this important and valuable ministry. Jesus saw the value of children and we have so many who pass on the opportunity to experience their value. Please see Michelle Kirian
for details.Encouraging Involvement
Are you looking for a way to get involved and feel connected? The 9:30 Contemporary Service is looking for people who are interested in test driving some of the volunteer opportunities available in helping with the set up and tear down of the worship service each week. NO commitment, NO obligation, and NO strings attached. There is a bulletin board posted in the Family Life Center above the drinking fountains that you can sign up on or just come early or stay late and someone will help get you involved.Jodi McDaniel (AKA Crazy Jodi) Contemporary Worship Chair
Bags of noodles are currently being sold for $3.00 a bag. Stop by the office if you would like to pick any up to support the Forest Park Scholarship Fund.Library
Do you know that Forest Park has a library? It is located across from the Fellowship Hall. Open every day, including Sunday after each service, the library has books for all ages. The shelves are well-marked with the types of books available – from toddlers to teens to adults. There is a clipboard on the small bookshelves to sign out the books. There is no limit to the number of books and no time limit! So if you take a daily devotional, you would be expected to keep it for a year. When you bring the books back, just put them in the Book Return basket on the floor. There are many treasures in the library – why not see what you can find?
