First row: Knit 3, purl 3 to the end of the row.

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.

Great Job!!!
• Penny Pitch collected $337.70 for the Imagine Campaign. Thank you to all who donated!

• We were able to donate 971 rolls of toilet paper to Guiding Light through our Super Bowl Challenge! Thanks for all your donations.

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?
