The mission ministry at Park Church puts its people directly into the community, offering the time, talent, and treasure of its members. The mission team’s current emphasis on the plight of the homeless has led to funding and staffing a monthly food distribution truck in the church parking lot as well as the ongoing support that Park Church provides to UCOM (United Church Outreach Ministry) and its programs. The mission team coordinates a breakfast served in the church fellowship hall on Saturday mornings once a month. In the winter, the team also provides warming day shelters with movies and a warm meal.
Last year, through God’s Grace, the Mission Team Budget and your participation, Park Church was able to do these things with Palmer School: tutor 2nd graders, holiday night of giving, basketball coaches, guest readers, guest authors, guest artists, school supplies, art supplies, clothing for the school clothes closet, secret santa shop, contributions to fun night, contributions to 4th & 5th grade choir, contributions to 5th grade camp, and scholarships to 5th grade camp.
This year, with God’s Grace, the Mission Team Budget and your continued participation.. we hope to do lots of this and MORE! Thank you so much.
