Fathers-Day-in-ParkCalvary Church is celebrating Father’s Day in Central Park in Valparaiso on June 16. The event begins at 10:45 a.m. and features contemporary worship artists, Sevenglory, and author and Calvary pastor, F. Lionel Young. The community is invited to attend.

I think many dads live under a lot of stress,” said Young. “Sometimes they just need to be encouraged. Our church wants to turn Father’s Day into a time of fun.” Following a worship service, people are encouraged to stay and enjoy the park. A classic car exhibition will be open until 2pm, and food vendors will be on hand selling lunch and snack items.

Bring a blanket or chairs, and arrive early as we’re expecting a huge turnout,” said Robyn Walsworth, assistant to the executive pastor, who is organizing the event. “There is plenty of parking within a block of the park.” Walsworth said green-shirted volunteers will be stationed around downtown to assist park-goers.
