Ongoing New Member Class
 Approximately every quarter, Pastor Jon Church begins a new  session of C.L.A.S.S. (Christian Life and Service Seminar). These  hourly sessions, held on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. over a  ten-week period, serve to introduce persons to the fellowship and ministry opportunities through Katy Park Baptist Church.  Since we have people from many different church backgrounds, this seminar is designed to clearly explain the purpose and direction of our church.  The purpose of C.L.A.S.S. is to help you become all that God wants you to be, by learning to grow in Christ and serve Him gladly.  If you're interested in participating in the next session, please contact Jon Church to express your interest.  The sessions will be conducted in the Pastor's Study.


 Current Study Topics of Summer Life Groups
 The Adult Life Groups have begun new studies on Sunday mornings  from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.  The Adult I Class, led by David and Carol  McCandless has just begun a new study, "Prayer: Communining with God in Everything."  The Friends Class continues to use the Access Materials designed specifically for the mentally challenged. Our other adult life groups; Adult II led by Ben and Lorna Sparks, Newly Married led by Brent and Lisa Cloud, and Adult Womens Class, are all going through "The Story". We also have classes for all ages, from Nursery through Senior High Teens. These classes are also going through "The Story".  If you haven't already plugged into a small group, these studies will be a great opportunity to connect with fellow class members.


What Is The Story?

The Story is an abridged, chronological Bible that reads like a novel. There are no verse references, and Scripture segments are seamlessly woven together with transition text into a single grand narrative. For those intimidated or overwhelmed by the unabridged Bible, The Story helps people understand God’s Word more fully and engage with it more easily.

Simple, accessible, and easy to use, churches are finding The Story a powerful way to engage their people in Bible reading like never before. As The Story brings the Bible to life, the broad scope of God’s message will penetrate hearts. People of all ages will be swept up in the story of God’s love and God’s plan for their lives.

For the next 30 weeks, our church will be going through "The Story" together. Come join us on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings and experience "The Story" for yourself!

"Parking Lot" Campaign
Our first phase in paving our church parking lot is underway.  Our goal for Phase I was set at $15,000 and Praise the Lord, we have reached, and even exceeded, that goal!  Work can begin soon on the entrances.  We will also be having a water shed survey completed prior to paving the handicap spaces.  In an effort to keep our costs to a minimum, the men of our church will be doing much of the labor themselves.  Please be praying about what you can give and/or how you can help.  A lot more funds are need to fully complete paving the lot, so all donations will be very much appreciated.


Online Video Training Available
Rightnow is an online video based training and teaching from various leaders and pastors.  They have added thousands of more videos since the last time we used this service, including fun videos for the kids.  We hope this becomes another tool you can use to grow deeper with God.  Watch your email for a message so you can log onto the site and begin learning and growing.  The website is  Check it out today!
