September 24, 2017: Worship in the Park

Posted on : Sep 21st, 2017 | By | Category: Special Events

On September 24 we will celebrate with our annual Worship in the Park. This year we’ll be back at Griffith Park, at the Crystal Springs Picnic Area. All are welcome!

Worship in the Park combines a great worship service and super-size “church picnic” in the beautiful setting of the Crystal Springs Picnic Area of Griffith Park.

Worship Theme:

“Experiencing God through Music”

Five of the seven churches will be offering a musical selection,

plus three people will share about how they experience God in music.

 

Church School in the Park:

All the Things God Created

It will be held on Sunday, September 24 at 11 am. We’ll have a one-hour worship service followed by a BBQ and picnic. We also have a “Kids’ Church School in the Park” for younger and older kids.

Dress, of course, is very casual and grass-stain resistant! Bring sunblock, folding chairs or a blanket to sit on and some food to share for a big picnic.

Parking:

Our picnic areas, (B &C) have 15 picnic tables and are right across the grass from any of these 3 parking lots:

1)  just past the bathroom pavilion there is a parking lot (to your left).  Walk straight across the grass.

2)  if that lot is full, the road turns to the right and there is another parking lot.  Walk straight across the grass.

3)  if that lot is full, the road turns to the right again and there is another parking lot back towards the freeway.

Go slightly to your right and walk across the grass.

Any parking lot works.
