Camp Diasozo Fundraiser: This Sunday, June 9th, we hope you can join us in supporting the Carnline family as they launch this new ministry.

The camp will provide year-round activities like horseback riding, swimming, and hiking. This Sunday, from 3-9pm at the Encino Park Community Center (1923 Encino Rio, 78259) there will be food, live music, face painting, live auction, a playground, and a lot more.

PARENTS!– mark your calendars for Sunday, June 30th 4- 6 PM for a Family Ministries Parenting event.

To make it even better, it’s free and we will have babysitters for the kids. Sign up with Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the evite with all the details.
Heads up! Serve at Blueprint this Summer: This Missional Partner of the Park serves the city of San Antonio by focusing on residential renewal projects in the inner city of San Antonio. Through their hard work and commitment, the staff of Blueprint has established relationships with homeowners all over the city and are sharing the hope of Jesus through the work they do. As part of their work, every summer youth groups come to San Antonio to work on homes. They are housed and fed at the Blueprint facility. Local churches have the opportunity to prepare and serve dinner meals to these campers. If you are interested in serving, the Park has taken a week and would love for you to volunteer on one or several nights that week. Details are below:
When: The week of June 23rd – Sunday thru Thursday – from 5:30-7:30pm

Exodus Community Groups: Community Groups at the Park track with the Sunday sermons. This Sunday we are going to be studying Chapter 18 of the book of Exodus. Any time we start a new book of the bible we engage our community to find out if anyone would like to join a new group. Since community is a core value of the Park, we encourage everyone to get into a Community Group. You can find a current list of groups HERE.
If you have questions, contact Chris.
Starting Point on 6.23.13
: What is Starting Point? We do this meeting once a month and it is designed to be a time where you get to find out more about the Park; it’s history, vision, values, etc. It is also a time where you can come with questions and we hope to provide clarity. Most questions get answered through the material that we cover, but not always. So, whether you are new or have been coming for a while, Starting Point is your next step in getting connected and I want to encourage you to join us right after service on Sunday, June 23rd. Questions? Email Chris
Missional Partner Spotlight:
At the Park we partner with individuals and organizations around our city and the world to extend the great message of the gospel through words and actions. We pray for these partners as well as help fund many of their projects, initiatives, and personal needs. For a complete list of our current partners click HERE
Christian Assistance Ministries is a non-profit organization in the heart of San Antonio that exists to share the love of Christ by providing immediate assistance and encouragement to people in crisis. Christian Assistance Ministry (CAM) is a cooperative ministry founded in 1977 by nine downtown San Antonio churches. The goal was to offer temporary assistance to individuals and families in crisis situations, alleviating the duplication of services by banding together to form one centrally located social service agency.
Dawn White leads the charge at CAM and does an amazing job instilling passion to so many and modeling servant leadership in our city.
Read Exodus 19 a couple of times this weekend and come ready to take some notes.
Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing you Sunday!
