Freedom. As Americans, we celebrate it on the 4th of July. It’s one of the highest ideals of our cultural milieu. We’re told to “live free, or die” – as if those are the only 2 options. We can’t imagine living without it. But do we understand what freedom truly is? Do we understand what freedom is really for? Do we understand how to actually “live free”? To discover these answers, we can only look to Jesus. And that’s what we’ll do in our new series, “Unchained: Finding True Freedom in Following Jesus”. Join us, and discover what living in true freedom really means!
On Sunday June 27, you may have heard from Marta Joy Quinn, Senior Director at HabCore, about the wonderful work they are doing in and around Monmouth County by providing long-term housing to residents in need. We believe that providing housing - and thus stability, dignity, and hope - is close to the very heart of God. As part of our mission, we are asking the Park community to take part in a month-long "HABcore Moving Day Drive" that will help fulfill the organizational wish list for new residents. Many of the HABcore families arrive at their new housing with only the clothes on their back, and the wish list helps ensure that every resident has their practical needs met from day one.
Starting July 11 and running through Labor Day, we invite you to pack a dinner, bring a beach chair, and come enjoy the beautiful Jersey shore with us…and bring some friends along too! All are welcome, always. It's one of the very best things about living where we live.
Indoor dining, indoor worship, crowded beaches, lessening restrictions, increased social interaction. After a dizzying fourteen months of disruption, we find ourselves slowly and to varying degrees, returning to the life we once knew, returning to the familiar. In Luke 15, Jesus tells a story about a son who, after radically disrupting his own life by leaving his family and home, decides to return to the life he once knew, to the familiar. But what will his father’s reaction be? Will he be welcomed? Will things be like they were before? This is a series about God – who He is and the invitation to find our true home in life with Him.
We have been circling for a while. We have been stuck for longer than we would like. We have felt held back from moving forward. But after a long season of waiting and wanting, moving forward gets a little scary. We are less certain about what we should be doing, less secure in our futures, less confident in our ability to be semi-normally functioning adults in social situations. When it comes to moving forward, we like the idea of forward, but we are a little hesitant about moving. As we gear up for the spring and summer, as we look forward to a fall that promises a semblance of normalcy, how can we move into life with faith, hope, and love?
It is with great excitement and long-awaited anticipation that we will be opening the doors of Park Kids after being apart for 14 months! We are looking FORWARD - starting this Sunday! - when we will start host classes for 2 years old - 5th grade. Please read a brief description of what the morning will look like so you may choose the best option for your family at this time.
May we give you some important updates??? See what we did there? We hope you're having a great spring, enjoying the rain growing our flowers and trees, and taking a moment to soak up the sun on nicer days. We do want to make sure you check out the important updates in the video from Michael
