The Community at Memorial Park

Memorial Park Church is a diverse community of Jesus-followers that has varied opportunities designed to engage each person’s interests and passions. We offer multiple ministry areas where you can get involved; from preschoolers to teens, men and women's groups, a thriving community of seniors, and many more, each of our ministry areas hosts activities such as classes, Bible studies, fellowship opportunities, and much more.

Our community is full of thought leaders, visionaries, movers and shakers that are working on big things to make this world a better place. Throughout the year, we also offer community engagement opportunities. We hope to give everyone an opportunity to hear the powerful messages and share the impactful tools our community experts have to offer. These opportunities are also here to create a space to get to know your community better, get inspired by the wisdom we each carry, and build bridges of connections.

The MPC Preschool and Outreach Ministries have united to offer English as a Second Language. The committment is simple: meeting with a pupil once a week for a few months to teach basic English communication skills. No experience required.

The ESL program is flexible, lessons are not restricted to a classroom setting. In fact, many tutors and their students take walks in the park, go shopping together, or share a meal at a local restaurant. Volunteers also impact the lives of their students by studying the Bible together and assisting with their travel plans. Many of these friendships have lasted for several years. Even when students move back to their homeland, many keep in touch through SKYPE and email. One particular tutor was 'adopted' by the entire family and was called 'grandma' by the student's children. The ESL program continues to grow and there are currently students in need of tutors. Please consider this rewarding way to serve God and the international community in our own backyard.
