Coronavirus Resources

What continues to guide us is our call to love our neighbors by reducing the spread of COVID-19 to the best of our ability.

As we have done throughout the pandemic, we are looking to follow the CDC’s and state’s recommendations.  

So with that in mind, here are our most up-to-date guidelines: 

  • please continue to wear a mask for all indoor gatherings.
  • if you (or your children) have a fever and/or are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms, please do not attend the Sunday gathering (enjoy the live-stream instead), or the smaller group gathering (reach out to the leader for virtual-gathering possibilities).
  • if you suspect you have COVID-19, please follow the CDC recommendations – which include self-isolating and taking a test 3-5 days from the time of exposure, once a test would give accurate results.
  • if you discover that you most likely had COVID-19 while at any Park gathering, please inform the leader of that gathering (for Sundays, contact our church Administrator), and as per CDC guidance, you are responsible to contact any person you spent time with in close enough contact to possibly transmit COVID-19 (per CDC: 15 minutes or more of contact of 6’ or less).  
  • if there is a confirmed COVID-19 case in a Park Kids class, the parents of the children in that class who possibly were exposed will be contacted out of an abundance of caution.

SEVEN THINGS TO KNOW:

 

  • We are here for you.

    We know that this pandemic has been difficult for everyone, especially for you who might be suffering in silence, isolated at home, afraid, sad, or just confused. You might feel alone – and actually be alone – but don’t think you need to do this alone. We are here to help you. Reach out to us, because we want to come alongside you to walk in these difficult days with you.

  • Community Groups are great, especially now.

    During the pandemic, we’re continuing to run our Community Groups – often virtually – as your opportunity to connect with others, find support, and grow closer to Jesus together. These are the backbone of Park Church, and if you’re not in one, you’re missing out.  But don’t miss out.  Join one today! Contact Matt Agresti with any questions, for more info, etc.

  • We are now gathering in person each week, which is always live streamed!

    Each Sunday morning at 9:00 & 10:30 in person at 31 Park Rd. in Tinton Falls – and at 9:00 on YouTube & Facebook, we gather to worship and hear from God. All of the details can be found here.

  • Kids can still learn and grow closer to Jesus during this time.

    We are so glad to see your Kids on Sunday mornings again. As of now, we have the nursery open (6-24 months) and classes for 2 years old though 6th grade, each Sunday at 31 Park at the 9:00 service only. The Park Kids common area and nursery are open with the live stream showing during the 10:30 service for you to accompany your child(ren). If you’re unable to make it, each week through our curriculum, we are happy to provide you the video lesson and worksheet for your child’s grade level for that week. They’re really great videos – kids love them!  But they can’t see them unless you show it to them! The videos and worksheets are found right here.

  • You can always read the bible with us.

    One thing we can all do even while we’re isolated at home is read the bible together. Join in our our yearly reading plan, and read with us online (or on our app!). Even if you’ve never read the bible before, this is a great time for you to start. After all, God speaks to us through it!

  • Middle & High School Groups are still happening!

    Our Community Groups continue to operate during the pandemic, and so do our speciality groups. Middle School Group continues to run on Wednesday nights in-person or virtually (contact Jenny Streich for details), as does our High School Group on Thursday nights (contact Anthony Santiago for details).

  • We want to help you help.

    So many are struggling and are in need during the pandemic, and we want to help. And we want to help you help. Throughout the pandemic, we are organizing efforts to serve our communities around and you’ll see announcements on how to get connected. If you want to help sooner, or have an idea for how to serve, contact us and let us know.

The Groups are meeting either in-person, or virtually – depending on the Group. We have Groups on most nights of the week, and we’d love for you to join one!

INSIGHTS, UPDATES, & MORE

Starting November 7th

Starting November 7th

Fall is upon us, leaves are changing, pumpkins are out, and Halloween is coming! We hope you’re doing well on this rainy day.  We want to take a moment to share an important announcement with you.

We have decided that starting in November, we will move to one Sunday service at 9:30AM.

That means that this Sunday (October 31) will be the last Sunday with two services for the time being.  There are many reasons why we are making this change now.

COVID-Update

COVID-Update

We hope you are enjoying this beautiful beginning to the fall. As we are entering the fall with two services, expanding Park Kids to include the nursery at the 9:00 service, and beginning our next season of Community Groups and Youth Ministries, we thought it would be important to update you on our COVID-19 guidelines.  

What continues to guide us is our call to love our neighbors by reducing the spread of COVID-19 to the best of our ability.

As we have done throughout the pandemic, we are looking to follow the CDC’s and state’s recommendations.  

So with that in mind, here are our most up-to-date guidelines: 

Current State of Affairs: Sundays

Current State of Affairs: Sundays

For as long as we've been at 31 Park, we've always had two services (September-June). Since COVID struck in March of 2020, we've gone back and forth between an online video worship experience, one outdoor service, one indoor service, etc...but now that fall 2021 has come, we are going back to two services: 9:00 & 10:30. We are excited to make this move because we believe that God wants more and more people to hear the good news of Jesus, and more services means more empty seats...which means more opportunities for you to invite more and more people in...and we want you do to just that! In a COVID-world, we are faced with some new challenges that we have needed to adjust to:
