Hello Church!! August is upon us!!! (Time goes by so quick!) We have now raised over 300 sanitizing wipe containers. WOOHOOO! We just want to let you know that the time is getting closer for our deadline. So, check out your local grocery/retail store and pick up a couple packs of wipes today. Under 200 to go! Let's do this thing!
Parkland Foursquare!!!! We are gearing up for an excellent outreach event to our community this August!!! Be sure to be around for this one! August 23rd-25th(misprint in our photo) we will be hosting our Lost in Space Kids outreach event at our church. We will be holding this exciting event 5:30-7:30pm on Thursday and Friday and 3:30-5:30pm on Saturday with community meal and church service to follow. There will be games, snacks, gospel presentation, and more! We really hope you can make it! Invite your neighbors, friends and family!
If you are at all interested in joining our worship team or helping out with slides/sound please join us for our Worship Team Gathering, August 22nd, at our normal church meeting place. We will discuss PFC's heart for worshiping Jesus and some logistics as well.
If you are already a part of the worship team, don't forget about this meeting! :)
If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.orgSee you soon.
Saturday, August 25th, we will be having our Monthly Community Meal.
From Rachel Cardoza(Community Meals Organizer/Leader):
"If one of you says to him, 'Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed', but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." James 2:16-17.
I know that this verse is a little intense, but James' straight forward approach to faith has always appealed to me. It's not enough to pray for well-being and health for others, it is just as important to actually be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Our Parkland community is a very low income; providing free meals not only gives the members of the community a place to get a healthy meal, but it allows space for our own church community to connect (hopefully with our neighbors). Food is a natural bridge, it spans differences and smooths tempers. Friends are made at the family table.
At Parkland Foursquare we want to allow for the comfort and community that good food brings, giving opportunity for authentic relationships that extend beyond the service greeting. So, we eat together at least once a month.
