Crime Victim Services has asked for Forest Park to help them provide for crime victims in Allen County. They provide many services to help get victims through the trial of their offender and back on their feet. One of the needs they have to help establish people in a new place is paper towels. Do you think we can come up with 100 rolls of paper towels by Memorial Day weekend? I think we can. You can bring your paper towels in anytime from now to the end of May and we will get them delivered.

Sunday, June 24
Is going to be a very special Sunday with a lot going on. It will be VBS Kick off and Pastor Tim's last Sunday at Forest Park. In order to accommodate all of the special activities that are planned, we are going to have a combined service in the sanctuary starting at 10:00. There will be a luncheon afterward in the FLC followed by the beginning of VBS. More details about the special events of that morning will come out later, but we want to make sure that everyone is aware of the change of service times.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a great way to get involved. You choose what to make and when and how to make it. Just remember to pray over the yarn and pray for the person receiving it. Include the washing/drying instructions.

Healing Shawl – knit pattern
Takes 3 skeins of yarn. Any size needles you are comfortable using. Cast on 63 stitches or any multiple of three.
First row: Knit 3, purl 3 to the end of the row.
Repeated pattern: Turn and knit the purl stitches and purl the knit stitches.

Continue until the shawl is about 6 feet long All prayer shawls can be fringed or not. Just remember to make some-thing that will bring comfort and warmth to the recipient.

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.

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.

did you know
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?
