Park @ 312, Outdoor Worship Gatherings

Park @ 312 Outdoor Worship Gatherings!

Outdoor Sunday Gatherings went great last year – and we’re excited to re-start them on Sunday March 28 (Palm Sunday!).

This spring, Park Church will be gathering for simplified outdoor Sunday worship gatherings at 312 Hance Ave. (former Monmouth Church of Christ property) at 9:30AM (weather permitting!).

It’s BYOS: bring your own seat (chair, blanket, etc.)!

We are super excited and at the same time realize that things are still very different. Here are the details, so please read carefully:

Where will it be?
We will be gathering for worship at 312 Hance Ave. (former Monmouth Church of Christ property) – NOT 31 Park Rd.

What time?
9:30 AM

Will there be kids programming? 
No, kids’ programming will not be provided. Children are always welcome, but we also understand that not providing childcare makes this a more challenging environment for young families. We do have activity bags for the kids though!

Will those awesome Park @ Home videos still be available? 
No! Starting on Sunday, March 28 – we will begin to live-stream the Park @ 312 Outdoor Worship Gatherings – and this will replace the pre-recorded Park @ Homes.

Where will we sit?
This is a bring-your-own-seat (BYOS) event. We will be using a nice spot under the trees behind the back parking lot.

What safety measures will be in place?
At Park, we take health and safety very seriously. So we kindly ask that you note these guidelines and restrictions for our outdoor worship gatherings:

  • We ask that everyone wear a mask indoor AND outdoor – except when seated/in-place for worship.
  • We ask that all children entering kindergarten and older wear a mask – except when seated with family for worship.
  • We ask that anyone who has knowingly been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the past two weeks stay home and enjoy the live-stream instead.
  • We ask that everyone practice social distancing (6 feet).
  • For song lyrics, contactless programs are available – as well as a digital program (to access, scan the displayed QR codes on Sunday or get the program at parkchurchnj.com/program)
  • There will not be kids programming.
  • This is a BYOS (Bring Your Own Seat) event, so please practice social distancing as you find your spot in the grass.
  • Building use is permitted for bathroom use only.
  • We will NOT be serving bagels, coffee, water, etc.
  • We will be celebrating communion once a month, using individual serving communion choices. Details will come that morning.

Will there be bathroom availability?
Yes!

What if the weather is bad?
If the weather is bad, we will cancel. Please be checking social media / your email the morning of. The decision to cancel or not will be made each morning by 8:00 AM. So be checking your email.

For those who make it, we can’t wait to see you all! For those who tune in online, we can’t wait to see you in the near future too!
