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 have virtual worship gatherings each week, and in-person when we′re able!

    Each Sunday at 9:30AM in person at 312 Hance. Ave in Tinton Falls – and on Facebook, we gather to worship and hear from God. The outdoor services are weather permitting, so make sure to check social media for up to date info. All of the details can be found here.

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

    We really miss seeing your Kids on Sunday mornings. There’s no doubt about it. But 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 are linked on the main page for each Park @ Home episode.

  • 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, read with us online (or on our app!), and check out our daily bible reflection videos from different members of the community. 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, as is MOPS.

    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). MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) meets twice a month on Tuesdays (in-person or virtually) as well. Contact Justine McDonald 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.

Sunday Services this Summer!

Sunday Services this Summer!

If you’ve seen the most recent update to New Jersey covid restrictions, then you know that as of this Friday, the mask mandate and the social-distancing mandate have been lifted for a number of venues, including churches.

Up until this point, the biggest barrier to moving indoors for Sunday worship has been kids. We simply haven’t had the space to responsibly provide Park Kids indoors while maintaining social distancing. But now the social distancing mandate has been lifted, which begs the question: What does this mean for Park?

Outdoor Services & Masks

Outdoor Services & Masks

It was great to see so many of you for yet another gorgeous Sunday morning of worship! It was especially fun to kick-off Park Kids for the first time since the pandemic hit. I want to give a big THANK YOU to all our staff and volunteers who are once again helping to create safe and fun environments where kids can learn to know and follow Jesus. The journey back to normalcy has been slow, which is why every single step forward is important.

Speaking of steps forward, the recent updates to the CDC and state guidelines are encouraging, and they also raise questions for Park’s own safety guidelines for worship. With this in mind, I’d like to share an update:
