As the Park community began to grow to include more and more kids in the high school group and the young adult group, a strange kind of “reverse generational” process began to happen…..they began to bring their parents along to “come and see’ what was having such a great and positive influence on their lives.
Older folks began appearing on Sunday nights at the worship service. Several were spotted at the Turkey Bowl. Some even came to the prom!
As we began to feel a sense of being connected through our children’s involvement, we decided to make another Park opportunity to meet together on a regular basis for the purpose of supporting and encouraging one another on discovering how to best live out our lives to their fullest potential….seeking out all that God has for us, in order to become all that He has created us to be. We share old memories, a few laughs, frustrations, joys and concerns as we learn God’s perspective on life. What can we hope in? Where does real Peace come from? In the future, we will talk about finding rest and joy in life, and what it means to have integrity. We have already begun to pray for one another.
Come and see if there might be anything here for you——if you have a family member already coming to Park, and even if you don’t. We are the Mid-Week Oasis group. Come and be a part of this new Park family! We gather at a different house of a Mid-Week Oasis-er on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month, between 7:30 and 9:30. For more information and up-to-date locations and times, contact Carol Andrews.
Hope to see you there!
