There are a few different Options you have for Tithing during the postponement of regularly scheduled Services.

  1. You can schedule with your bank to have a recurring payment set-up. (Recurring payments are automatic payments that a user authorizes to be made from a bank account or credit card on a regular billing cycle. Generally, the billing cycle is on a set day of every month. Recurring payments can be beneficial for both the party being billed and the party receiving the funds.)
  2. You can Mail in your tithes to the Church Office at 315 S. Collins St. Lima, Ohio 45804
  3. You may use the Drop box located at the Main Entrance on Linden Ave. under the portico.

From our Bishop Gregory Palmer...

After lots of conversation, processing of data and prayer, I am asking you not to hold public worship services at least through Easter. As I type this I am trembling, but I am convinced it is the wise and faithful thing to ask of all of us. I share this now so that you have more rather than less time to plan well for creative, online approaches to engaging your congregation and community in worship. We will continue to push out to you information about as many of our congregations as we have knowledge of that do some form of digital worship. The cabinet is preparing a specific resource about sacraments in this crisis. I will continue to do my best to connect with you digitally. I am learning some new tools that I have neglected until now.

Dear friends, Forest Park UMC will continue to comply with the Bishop's directions, Our Sunday corporate worship is postponed until Easter.

Keep praying! Tune into this Facebook page for updates and for worship opportunities. Reach out to others ... love your neighbor... be the church!

We will continue to outreach to you. My love and virtual hugs to all of you!


Pastor Teresa
