MLK March this Monday


What would the actions you take on Monday say about the content of your character? In observance of MLK Day and thinking of those living in the midst of suffering, I am reminded of the Park’s core values, how they reflect much of what Dr. Martin Luther King stood for. 

Presence – nothing speaks louder than our presence. Jesus showed us what it is to be present; the woman at the well, the blind man, the leper, the Good Samaritan, the list goes on and on! ~Luke 1:18 

Sacrifice – we may not have to sacrifice in the same ways as others, but we can identify with their sacrifice and minister hope to them from our Heavenly Father. ~Romans 15:13 

Submission – we can submit ourselves to our neighbors, treating them like we would treat ourselves or better! ~Ephesians 5:21 

Renewal – we are asking God to renew our city and renew us to be people reflecting Jesus. ~Isaiah 26:8 

Family – we are all God’s creation, every one of us. Daily the news portrays how our nation as full of hate and divisiveness. May we be anointed by God to bring unconditional love, inclusiveness, and peace wherever we go. ~Matthew 12: 9-12 

Sending – we are sent disciples, making disciples. The twelve disciples ministered in each town, to any who had need. We are those same sent disciples giving a word of encouragement, a healing touch, freedom to set a captive free, and joy where there is weeping, all in Jesus’ name. ~Titus 2: 11-14 

Many of us will never know the human rights abuses experienced by our brothers and sisters in the States and around the world. If you aren’t able to march, consider serving a new neighbor with dinner or a word of encouragement!

“(Jesus’) love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals.” Martin Luther King

Services Resume This Sunday


And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war. ~Isaiah 2:4

On Sunday Keith Thomas Kinnunen opened fire in a church in Texas, fatally shooting two people.  It’s the time of year that we are making, and more than likely, already breaking resolutions. But we are not only looking forward, we are also looking back on a year that held so much hope but sadly that hope is also amidst so much tragedy. The (verse above) proclaims the eventuality of what God will do. There will be no more violence, no more destruction, and no more death. The church stands in between proclaiming the in breaking kingdom of God. We are the now, and not yet, people who can assure those in desperation that a day is coming where violence will meet its final end. If you are like me the passion of your resolutions are already fading, so let me suggest a few resolutions you might not have already listed, and together we can resolve to be the representation of God’s breaking peace. 

We resolve to pray for the healing of our world and against violence and vengeance. 

We resolve to let perfect love drive out fear as we continue to meet together and proclaim The good news of Christ.

We resolve to seek peace and seek healing and wholeness for those marginalized. 

We resolve to trust in God’s perfect justice. 

We resolve to let the Holy Spirit shape our steps everyday and to let the life of Christ in us overflow into our world, city, and into our neighbors. 

I have spent 25 years preaching Christ has died, Christ has risen, and Christ will come again. In the meantime I trust that He is reigning alongside The Father and he will finish the work He has started in you. 

Grace & Peace, 

Scott Austin

Lead Pastor, The Park Community

In January 2020, The Park Community Church turns 10 years old! It is pretty amazing to see all the ways God has worked in and through this community over the last decade. From starting out with a couple dozen people at the Rose Theatre, to now having 3 neighborhood communities gathering for worship, discipleship, prayer and mission is incredible. Praise God!

Our plan is to continue chasing the vision God has given us: to be a freely gathered, sacrificial people who are led by the Spirit; to live in submission to one another under the headship of Christ, joining God in the renewal of all things. Among other texts, this vision is born out of John 15, Ephesians 4, and Acts 2. These three passages interestingly enough lay out the mission for the individual (to abide), the church gathered (local and present to one another), and the church’s witness (their number added to daily) in the world. 

In light of this mission and vision, I have a question for you:

What would it look like for you to set specific targets for 2020 in each of these 3 areas and who can you invite into that journey with you?

Ok, that was technically 2, but you get the idea. No plan equals no growth! Committing to this undoubtedly will require sacrifice, patience, and resolve.

In closing, this 10-year journey has been financially supported by so many and we are humbled and grateful. With the next decade on the doorstep, we would love for you to invest in the work and vision of the Park. To make an end of year gift, please click here. And in case you missed it, click here for our 2019 Annual Report.

In San Antonio, and around the world, as it is in Heaven!

Introducing The Discipleship Core

“Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ.”
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The Park Community is ten years old this coming January. For a few of you, The Park turned ten this past summer when in 2009 we began to whisper about God doing a new thing in SA. As I consider the next ten years I think about the state of the universal church and the opportunities for the church in our city, and then I ask… what role are we to play? What role are Shannon and I supposed to play? What role are the leaders and staff of The Park supposed to play? I believe the Father has given me clarity, that we have gathered and loved, but now we need to commit ourselves to making disciples who make disciples.

In 2020 we are rolling out Discipleship Core Groups. 
A Discipleship Core is an intentional discipleship pathway where a group of 8-10 adults meet twice a month for three semesters. The goal for the Discipleship Core is to lead others in becoming proficient at living out The Park’s six core values: presence, sacrifice, submission, family, renewal, and sending. Discipleship needs to be intentional and purposeful. On the one hand, you can say that everything in life is discipleship, and you wouldn’t be wrong. However, we have discerned a specific pathway and believe it will produce life in those you lead while bolstering your faith on the journey.

The Discipleship Core and our existing Missional Communities are meant to work together in tandem.  We have learned through extensive conversations that most of The Park’s missional communities are tightly knit gospel friendships that serve a critical place in the lives of most of our congregation.  That’s a beautiful thing, but we are also learning that those MC’s struggle to find seats for new people and rarely multiply or launch new leaders. Our hope in 2020 is to continue the critical role of the MC and at the same time create a smaller community that is committed to multiplication. 

If you have questions, need more clarity, are interested in leading a Discipleship Core, or would like to participate then please contact your parish pastor or send me a note scott@theparksa.org

O Holy Night

Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming

With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand

So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming

Here come the Wise Men from Orient land

The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger

In all our trials born to be our friend

He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger


This coming Sunday in all three of our parishes we will be reflections on Placide Cappeau’s poem, “O Holy Night.” I have listened to the hymn dozens of times in preparation for this week. The second verse, depicts Jesus as, “The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger; In all our trials born to be our friend.” I am overwhelmed by the idea that the God incarnate turns his attention to my trials. I am overwhelmed that in a season of chaos the God of all creation has time for me. The poet turns this powerful truth into a simple request, “to love one another.” I hope that in this Advent season you will feel the presence fo your Heavenly Father and that you will turn your attention to your neighbor.

A Heart of Gratitude

Since my children were little, we have had a nightly routine at dinner to go around the table and each say what we are thankful for. Over the years we’ve heard little things like, “I’m thankful that we played four square in PE.” And, we’ve heard big things such as, “I’m thankful that Uncle Tim is home from Afghanistan safely.” Whether large or small, the heart behind these statements is the same: a heart of gratitude. What Robert and I hope we are instilling in our kids is that there’s always something to be thankful for. Our God is one of abundance. He wants us to delight in his creation and see His goodness in every part of our day. Some days, it feels like we have to look really hard to find it, but it’s always there. Did you spot a vibrant red cardinal in the back yard that made you smile? Was there a friend at school or work who encouraged you? These moments are little gifts from God. As you practice looking for these events in your day, your overall attitude starts to shift from grumbling to gratitude. Your posture becomes joyful.

My daughter’s teacher sent home a “Gratitude Scavenger Hunt” for her to do this week in preparation of Thanksgiving.  I thought it was the perfect way to practice finding things to be grateful for, so I wanted to share it here. This week, take some time to go on your own scavenger hunt and journal all the ways you’ve seen God around you and things you are thankful for.

 Gratitude Scavenger Hunt

1.     Find something outside you enjoy looking at.

2.     Find something that is useful for you.

3.     Find something that is your favorite color.

4.     Find something that makes you happy.

5.     Find something that makes you laugh.

6.     Find something in the morning that you enjoy.

7.     Find a friend or a pet that you love spending time with.

8.     Find something that tastes good.

9.     Find something that you love doing outside with friends.

10. Find something that you are grateful for.

Now Recruiting Spring Volunteers

Spring 2020 Volunteering @ The Park

Being a church that plants churches, the way we keep things streamlined and debt-free is that everyone does something. We ask everyone in our community to serve once a month on Sundays in many different areas like Family Ministries, Operations, Connections, and a few others. If you are not currently serving, would you take a moment and fill out the volunteer form to jump in for the first half of 2020? Click here to sign up and we’ll contact you this week.

Why We Gather

Recent studies are showing that fewer and fewer Christians are attending Sunday church gatherings. For different reasons, there seems to be a general apathy concerning being with one another to celebrate all that God has done in Christ on our behalf and to encourage one another as a result of being present to fellow brothers and sisters. With the advent of an endless supply of resources, podcasts, and online sermon content, we have become somewhat lost in all these resources to the detriment of not properly valuing being with fellow members of the body of Christ in gathered times of prayer, scripture, and singing.

Made in the image of God, you and I are created for relationships built on being loved and known. We need to recover and reengage the ancient path of gathering together with joy and expectation.  The author of Hebrews exhorted the church by writing, “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” (Hebrews 10:25)

With Sunday being right around the corner, can I boldly ask: is there a joyful expectation to gather with other followers of Jesus? The church is a sign and foretaste of God’s kingdom here and now. Be encouraged that you are not in this alone and that your participation in the gathered life of the body of Christ is critical to not only your spiritual growth but also those around you. I am praying for our hearts to be renewed in this way!

Confessing Your Sins

As we continue in our study of Hosea, I am reminded of how important prayers of confession are. I can err on the side of cheapening grace by thinking my sin isn’t that bad, or that God already knows, so confessing is unnecessary or unimportant. Scripture highlights the importance of confessing to God and one another:

“If we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:8-9

“Confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed.James 5:16

Confessing can be difficult when we feel guilt or shame about our sinful nature and tendencies. Satan would love nothing more than for us to remain in that place; isolated, defeated, cast down. The great hope of the gospel is that in Christ, we have forgiveness, healing and restoration.

If anyone is in Christ, you are a new creation: the old life has passed away; everything has become new! All this is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.”  2 Corinthians 5:17-18

Join me this week in confessing our sins to God and one another, rejoicing in the assurance that we will find forgiveness in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

Prayer of Confession //

Most merciful God,
whose Son Jesus Christ was tempted in every way, yet without sin,
we confess before You our own sinfulness:
we have hungered after that which does not satisfy;
we have compromised with evil;
we have doubted Your power to protect us.
Forgive our lack of faith; have mercy on our weakness.
Restore in us such trust and love that we may walk in Your ways and delight in doing Your will.
Amen.

In Christ,
Mike DeFrees |The Park Midtown Parish Pastor
