I hope you have had a great week!
One of the Core beliefs of the Park is that the Bible is God’s Word, authored by Him and is the standard by which followers of Jesus are called to live. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” It is a great reminder for me today that the words contained in the Bible are from God to me, breathed into existence by the Creator of all things, so that I might be ready to do all that He has called me to do. The question we must wrestle with continually is: Am I “in” His word? Do I know it and able to teach it? Do I consider myself to be in training? The implications for us (and the world around us) are too big to not consider and respond to the eternal value of having His Word with us today.
There is a lot going on around the Park these days and we want to make sure you don’t miss a beat. Check out the following events and opportunities to serve:

From Brandon: “Alright everybody, this month is going to be way different than what we normally do. I think God puts us in our different places in life for His specific reasons, and a lot of the time we don’t understand why. Now that I’m on the ambulance, I get to see a ton of nursing home residents. These men and women need some loving on – and that’s what we plan on doing. We’ll arrive at 2 and have a ice cream social with the residents (I’ll bring all the stuff), and then time permitting we’ll play some board games or dominoes. Another option that the even coordinator told me today is that the men and women really enjoy making cards for our service people — so that’ll be another option. You don’t have to bring anything, just show up and spend some time with these well deserving people. Few things are more fun than sitting and talking with folks that have been alive 2 and 3 times longer than we’ve been here. I hope to see you then. Let me know if you have any questions, and kids are welcome — actually very much encouraged.”

PARENTS!– Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 30th 4-6 PM for a Family Ministries Parenting event. We are delighted to be hosting Jason Raitz, who will share his thoughts on the “The Sacredness of Parenting”. “We’ll discover the infinite love God has for His children and how He calls us to love them.” He is a great communicator and we know you will enjoy it! 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.
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.
Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing you Sunday!
