I hope you are having a great summer thus far. With vacations, kids home from school, and just the general heat be sure and take some time to slow down and physically and mentally rest. For me that means to turn off my phone, unhook from social media, and get outside in the evenings. Whatever it looks like for you, do it and do it often. Use those moments to put your mind and heart towards the things of God. As we know, “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” ~ Colossians 3:2-3
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:
DeFrees Family Mission Trip:
The DeFrees family is with Real 4 Christ Ministries in Mombasa, Kenya from July 12-24. Real 4 Christ is spreading God’s love in many ways in Africa. They have planted two churches, started a school that serves 300 students and share Jesus with people in neighboring villages. In addition, they have opened a feeding center, medical clinic and drill wells so that communities have clean water to drink.
The DeFrees’ are very excited and humbled to join their friends Chris and Lisa Moore (founders of Real 4 Christ Ministries) in being the hands and feet of Jesus in Mombasa and answering God’s call to go and make disciples.
Please keep them in your prayers as they minister in Kenya. Thank you!
Exodus Community Groups: Community Groups at the Park track with the Sunday sermons. Any time we start a new book of the bible we engage our community to find out if anyone would like to start or 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, read Exodus 25-31, and we look forward to seeing you Sunday at Huebner Elementary!
