Discipleship Core Information Dinner
As we focus on what church looks like after a season on unknowns and change, we are hopeful for what God is going to do in and through The Park. Our focus on discipleship is key to our next steps. On Wednesday, August 25th we will have an orientation dinner to learn more about Launching a Discipleship Core. We would love for you to join us as we discuss this more and invite you to join in on the conversation. This dinner is informational and does not commit you to launching a Discipleship Core. While we plan to have a dinner for this, we are continuing to keep everyone’s safety in mind and will make the appropriate arrangements if changes are needed. To attend the information dinner you can click here to register.
4th-6th Grade Class
This past Sunday we kicked off our 4th-6th grade class! We had a great time and are looking forward to seeing them this Sunday where Mike Defrees will be teaching. Kids are encouraged to continue to sit with their parents during worship and will be dismissed during the Call to Community by our worship leader to the Art Room to the right of the stage. For questions or more information you can contact Christina Isenhower at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Caring for the Safety of All
At The Park, we have tried to make the most wise decisions in regards to the safety of everyone attending services, following CDC guidelines and monitoring COVID-19 case numbers. In light of the recent rise in cases we ask that at this time each of you continue to monitor your personal health very closely. Continue to be cautious and courteous of others as you have been. We will continue our practice of masks being optional, but encourage you to embrace the Christian virtue of hospitality regarding masks. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask while attending, please do so; it is also acceptable if you prefer not to wear a mask. m
In Romans 14:20, the apostle Paul instructed the early church, “Don’t tear apart the work of God over what you eat.” (NLT) Paul was helping the early church deal with disagreements over dietary laws. The work of God was to be greater than the arguments over what food one could eat. We could easily insert the word “mask” for “food” for the scripture to speak to us today.
Our personal appeal to you, as leaders in the church, is to remember that not one of us knows the full story of the person behind the mask that is worn nor the reason for someone not wearing a mask. In our very broken and divisive world, we pray that our community of faith will model what it looks like to live with respect and love for others.
We hope you will join us Sunday as we continue our Celebrate and Remember series and look at Channakuh.

Missional Need: YoungLives
YoungLives, a ministry to teen moms and their babies, is excited to begin the new fall semester with a fresh start. They are currently recruiting volunteers who can make a year long commitment from Aug 2021 through June 2022 in a variety of positions from discipleship to support. There are weekly and monthly ways to serve. If you’re interested in serving or would like more information on volunteer opportunities you can contact Christina Via at 678-993-6146 or email@example.com to learn more.
Connecting Through Serving
We have enjoyed meeting so many new people attending The Park. One of the best ways to connect with others is through serving alongside them. Weekly, we have a team of volunteers to make our service run, from setting up before service to teaching kids in Family Ministry, we can’t do it with out a team of people. As our Sunday morning church community continues to grow, so does the need for more people to help serve. If you would like to serve once a month in any of our four areas: Family Ministry (Infants to Elementary), Media, Connections or Operations, you can click here. Someone from our staff will contact you with more information.
