RP - Weekly, July 5th

Hi RP Family,

We are 5 days away from Soccer Camp kicking off on July 10th. Woop Woop! We are delighted to have 90 kids registered and joining us for week 1! It is exciting that our registration form shows that 25% of these kids are our Hindi speaking neighbors and 20% Spanish speaking. What a great opportunity we have to welcome them into our church family and experience the love of Jesus through us! We are praying with great expectation as to what the Lord will do as we gather in our local Park each week throughout July. Even if you are not signed up to play a specific role on the team, please come out and join us. It will be a great place to fellowship together as well as make new friends!

Also, a reminder that we will not have our usual RP gathering on July 21st but instead we have the chance to celebrate with our wider Park church family as brothers and sisters get Baptized in Lake Michigan. Please join us for this Summer Celebration Baptism Service - it is always so encouraging to see what God is doing across our city, working in and through His people.

Finally, despite being British, I hope you all had a lovely Happy Independence day and find time this holiday weekend to rest with friends and family!

Every blessing,
Maddy Hutchens , RP Kid's Coordinator 


Serving at Park-RP

When you join a serving team, you're not just volunteering; you're becoming an integral part of our church family. It's where friendships begin, where commitment is strengthened, and where you will truly start to feel like you belong.

Giving at Park-RP

We believe that giving is an act of worship. It recognizes God as the owner and source of all we have. It is our cheerful response to God in praise of His radical generosity towards us.

Neighborhood Partners

Collaboration allows us to leverage our strengths, compensate for our weaknesses, and reach areas and demographics of our city that might otherwise remain untouched.

Note for Elementary kids parents: As we look to the summer schedule for our RP Kids ministry, we have prayerfully decided to give our Elementary kids the opportunity to remain in service once a month on the following dates:
We hope and pray this will give our Elementary kids a great experience of being a part of our wider church family. It will also mean that our RP Kids ministry team will not be asked to serve twice a month throughout the summer as we have a reduced number of team members. We appreciate your understanding and are happy to discuss this further if helpful!

If you have recently joined our church or have a new child please register them here.
