Hyde Park Game Night

Hyde Park Game Night

 Craving more family connection time?

Join us for Hyde Park Game Night!

Conversation starters, board games, and more – fun for the WHOLE family!

We know families are busy with school and work and outside activities, but still long to have fun together and talk about more than just day-to-day events. How do you find time for conversations, both silly and meaningful, and play as a family?

All of our Hyde Park family, including children and students from our Children’s Ministries and Youth Ministries, and their parents/guardians/grandparents are welcome! This event is a time for families of all ages and stages to connect with each other. There will also be childcare for children ages 2 and under so family members are able to participate in all the games.

6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, Harnish Activities Center

Pizza dinner starts at 5:30 p.m. $8/adults $5/children

RSVP here!

Financial Peace University LIVE!

One thing that Dave Ramsey has learned through more than 25 years of guiding people on how to win with money: It doesn’t happen in one day. But it can start in one day!

Join Dave, Chris Hogan, and Anthony O’Neal on Sept. 28 for the first-ever Financial Peace Accelerated — a live teaching of all nine lessons in just one day.

At Financial Peace Accelerated, you will learn how to:

  • Break the cycle of financial stress by creating and living on a monthly budget. It’s time to tell your money where to go instead of wondering where it went.
  • Attack your debts one at a time with gazelle intensity, so that one day you can scream, “’I’M DEBT FREEEEEEE!”
  • Put yourself on the path toward millionaire status by understanding how to save for the future, invest like a pro, and give with outrageous generosity!

At the event, you will also receive a year-long membership to Financial Peace University where you can review all nine lessons, discover all the tools you need and enjoy free access to EveryDollar Plus, our game-changing budgeting app.

Individual tickets are $89 and couple tickets are $129. Register here.

The all-day event is Saturday, Sept. 28 at Calvary Orlando, 1199 Clay Street, Winter Park FL 32789.

Bike Ministry Training May 11

Bike Ministry Training May 11

Hyde Park’s Bike Ministry continues to roll along and is very much in need of more volunteers. While there is always room for new mechanics, we also have non-mechanical need such as:


  • metal recycling once a month
  • intake assistance for an hour on Sunday mornings to tag bikes with people’s names and the repairs required
  • storeroom organization once a month
  • donation intake and processing
  • storage for bikes near the church
  • transporting donation bikes to and from storage
We currently have a small crew of three mechanics working up to 5 hours on 20 bikes on any given Sunday morning and would appreciate some additional assistance.
We will hold be a Bike Repair Training Class held from 8-10 a.m. on Saturday May 11, in the carport of the Madison building, corner of Magnolia and Azeele. You can meet everyone and find out how you might want to participate, or just learn more about bikes. You can also use our tools to work on your own bikes, if you would like to bring them.
While we try to offer services on a weekly basis, this all depends on the manpower available to facilitate them.
Please feel free to contact Maria Colfer at mecolfer@gmail.com with any questions or to sign up for the class.
“I’m sorry” – Two Words Sticky Faith Taught Me To Say

“I’m sorry” – Two Words Sticky Faith Taught Me To Say

Dr. Kara Powell recently published The Sticky Faith Guide for Your Family and through her research and parent interviews, the power of parents apologizing to their kids quickly became clear. Here’s one thing that she has learned through her research:

What separates Christianity from every other religion is grace. All other religions believe we reach God through obedience and behaviors; in Christianity, God reaches us through unmerited grace.

If we want our homes to drip with grace, we as parents need to be quick to apologize. Confessing our mistakes to our kids and asking them to forgive us not only builds closer family relationships, it also helps our kids experience the closeness of God’s tender mercies.

So thanks to our research, I’ve started saying two words more frequently to my kids. I’m sorry.
“I’m sorry for the tone of voice I used when I asked you to empty the dishwasher.”
“I’m sorry that I misunderstood the conflict you were having with your brother and jumped to an unfair conclusion.”
“I’m sorry that I wasn’t sensitive enough to how tired you were from soccer.”

If you want to make your home a hub of grace, try the following:
1. Keep your personal antennae up for times when your own fatigue causes you to speak unkindly to your kids.
2. When you feel like you’ve wronged your kids, tell them that you’re sorry and ask for their forgiveness.
3. Make sure you are quick to extend forgiveness to your kids when they need to do the same.
According to our research, saying “I’m sorry” isn’t a sign of parental failure. It can be a bridge to greater family intimacy and faith.
