If you were able to join us this Wednesday past we had a fantastic kick-off to Soccer Camp!! 109 Kids Pre-Registered + many more showing up on the night to register! (See pics below!) What a gift to be able to introduce ourselves to so many neighbors! I've been reminded this Summer of how the Lord uses and empowers the simplest of offerings, when we take a step of courage for his fame and glory - whether the simplest of invitations, the simplest word of encouragement, the simplest testimony of God's work in our lives - God is honored through it all! Take courage, Church!   Read More

Hi RP Family - Here is my last RP Weekly to you, I'm not saying goodbye by any means, as we are still part of the same church family, Rather, God is continuing his work of sending his people out, whether across the neighborhood, across the city, or across the world. And so, first, I want to keep us attuned to what RP is doing this summer, as there are many ways to engage in Gospel work and grow in Christlikeness within the church schedule and rhythms. RP's next Park in the Park is this Sunday, Soccer Camp starts July 10th, the next Night Church is July 20th, and then our larger Park-Wide family will be gathering at Montrose Beach July 21st, for Park's annual Summer Celebration   Read More

Living with a sense of inner frenzy and hurry can quickly crowd out the peace and rest that Christ has secured for us in the Gospel. I hope this week has been one where you have been reminded that it is you who are the beloved, and God gives to his beloved the free gift of rest - rest for your body, and rest for your soul.  Read More
