Good morning!

I hope you have had a great week! I posted this core belief last week and thought I’d give it another go around this 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.

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

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:

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.

Read Exodus 21-23 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!
