February 2024: Heart Health Awareness Month

Every year, we encourage our Park family GO RED by wearing red one Sunday in February. The American Heart Association uses the platform GO RED to bring awareness of how heart disease has affected women and how gaps in clinical care impact heart health in women.

Heart disease is the number one killer of women. Nearly 45% of women age 20 and over are living with some form of heart disease.
Please visit the Healthcare Ministry in the Narthex after service to find information on how you can take steps to change your
lifestyle behaviors to reduce the risk of heart disease. Stop by the
ministry table to pick up this information and have your blood pressure checked. Knowledge is power, and you have the power to change unhealthy behaviors.

The Healthcare Ministry is seeking to partner with the National Black
Church Initiative in the next few months as we present health issues
that have a greater impact on minorities. Also, be on the lookout for
the upcoming CPR classes coming soon.

The Watchmen Ministry

We are a vital component to ensuring a safe and secure environment during The Park Church services and events.

As “doorkeepers” and Watchmen, both men and
women in this role help to ensure attendees feel safe through vigilant observance and high attention to detail.

Many who serve in this ministry do so out of a call to be watchful under the training and guidance of the Director of Security. As part of training, you’ll learn more about common and uncommon scenarios.

If you’re firm but polite, can easily interact with people who may have energy that need to be appropriately diffused and have professional communication etiquette, then this ministry may be for you.

Summer Feeding & Reading Enrichment Program

What is The Park Church Summer Feeding & Reading Enrichment Program?

Our SF&RP will occur during the summer months to ensure that no child goes hungry when school meals are no longer available. Through our Summer Feeding and Reading Enrichment Program we are able to fill the nutrition gap and help stop reading loss to make sure children and teens get the nutritious meals and books they need to learn, read, play, and grow when they are out of school. A child’s good nutrition and learning does not have to end when school lets out.

Why is the Summer Feeding & Reading Enrichment Program important?

  • Good nutrition and reading enrichment is essential for preparing for the next school year.  A Summer Feeding & Reading Enrichment Program provides an opportunity to continue a child’s physical, social, and academic development while providing nutritious meals and books during long vacation periods from school.  It helps children to thrive during the summer months and be ready to return to school ready to learn
  • Research shows that children who do not read during the summer can lose from 1-3 months of learning from the previous school year.  Much of the achievement gap is attributed to summer reading loss
  • During the school year, many children receive free and reduced-price meals through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. When school ends,  many of these children are at risk of hunger.  Hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process. Lack of nutrition during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor performance once school begins again and make children more prone to illness and other health issues.
  • It provides our church with an opportunity to share the redemptive love of Jesus Christ with those in need
