New Series Starting this Sunday
Although this is a holiday weekend, we will still be meeting this Sunday at 10am at the Christian School at Castle Hills. We are kicking off a new series: Story Formed, where you will hear from many voices from our church community. We hope you will join us Sunday!
Albania Mission Trip
Our Albania team will be heading out in two weeks. They will be working with two of our missional partners, Jason and Alison Kemp serving the Roma community, and Aldo and Blerina Rustemi working with CRU students. If you would like to support the work we will be doing you can click here to give.
We were happy to pray over and send pastor Scott Austin on the first sabbatical journey for The Park this past weekend.
What is a Sabbatical? It is a biblical rhythm that goes back to Genesis as we see God resting from His work. It is a good reminder for all of us today that we need not just rest but restoration and renewal. A Sabbatical is not to be viewed as a leave of absence. It is not a response to a crisis. It is designed to achieve goals of rest, encouragement, and refreshing for the individual. A Sabbatical is an extended time of rest, stepping away from daily work tasks, in order to be strengthened and renewed towards future service.
For the Park, we long especially for each of our staff to be able to experience this kind of restoration periodically. We want a person going on Sabbatical to think about 5 areas of their life and how they, alongside their family, will engage with the Lord during their Sabbatical: Physical, Emotional, Social, Intellectual, and Spiritual.
Join us in praying for Scott, Shannon, and their boys over this time.
Blueprint Summer Serving
We are still in need of people to help prepare and serve meals for The Park campers at Blueprint Ministries the week of July 17, 5:30-8:00pm (Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday). We need 8-10 volunteers each day, and currently only have 1-2 each day. Serving is easy and fun for you, friends, and family! You will arrive at 5:30pm, cook dinner for the campers, serve, and then clean up. Volunteering will be done by 8pm. You can click here to volunteer to serve.
Blueprint has lots of other summer serving opportunities available for you and older children to assist with. Blueprint has things that need to be done around their building such as some heavy lifting and moving, stocking closets, administrative prep, etc. They also need assistance picking up and dropping off materials to home sites as well as helping cook, serve and clean up meals for campers throughout the summer. If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities you can click here.
Neighborhood Parish Meals
Parish meals are still continuing this summer! We have some great dinners, events, and men and women hang outs planned for the summer through The Park’s neighborhood parishes. Groups meet on different nights of the week, so check out which is closest to you, or which night of the week works best for you.
