Join Us Today: Good Friday Tenebrae Service
Join us today for a streamed Good Friday service. This service is in preparation to celebrate Easter Sunday morning. ‘Tenebrae’ means darkness or shadows. As we come to the end of Lent, we begin a journey into darkness to a place of deep shadows. This service is a somber service where we read scripture from the last week of Jesus’ life and sing together. We enter into the depth of sadness and darkness that would have been felt after Jesus died on the cross, before Easter Sunday. Click here to join us today at noon.

Safety Protocols for In-Person Sunday Morning Gathering
As we continue to rent Aggie Park for the next month, we are bound by their rules. Like many private businesses, they are still requiring people to wear masks when inside the facility, so we will also ask you to do the same. If sitting inside, please continue to keep your mask on for the entirety of the service. As we consider our next meeting space, we will reevaluate based on the rules of the space, CDC guidelines, and TEA guidelines. So for the next month, masks are required inside of the facility at Aggie Park. As always, you are welcome to drop the mask if sitting outside for worship. We will continue to live-stream our services for those of you who are taking extra precautions or just prefer to not wear a mask at all. We love all of you, respect your opinions, and pray you will be patient as we struggle to navigate this season.
Lent Guide: Journey to the Cross
We want this season of Lent to be one where together we are not just meditating on the things of God, but one where we are practicing them together. In order to help with this, we have created this Lent Guide that includes mediations, prayers, and some practices for us to do together.

We believe baptism represents a special time in the life of the believer and in the church. Baptism is a sacramental work of the Holy Spirit that is an outward sign of an inward change in the life of a follower of Jesus. We are planning a baptism service on May 23rd at the Oak Meadow pool. If you are interested in learning more about baptism or signing up to be baptized, click here and a pastor will contact you.
If you have a child who would like to be dedicated, we will have a dedication service on Mother’s Day this year. To sign up, please click here. If your child would like to be baptized you can contact us for resources to do with your child prior to getting baptized. Contact Family Ministries at FM@theparksa.org for more information.
