Linda Lane Park and Luke 10:38-42 are the inspiration behind the name Parked. The ministry began with a handful of young mothers meeting at Linda Lane in San Clemente for friendship, playtime, and a few stolen minutes in God’s word. In Luke’s gospel, Jesus compares two women—Mary and Martha. Martha is distracted with much serving. She is anxious and troubled about many things, while Mary sits at the Lord’s feet and listens to His teaching. Martha is reproved by Jesus; Mary is commended. “Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” Mary is parked, so to speak. She prioritizes her time in the Scriptures over tasks (John 5:39). Our desire is to provide a place where women can come together to learn from Scripture and be encouraged by the gospel and by each other. We want them to sit and trust like Marys so they can get up and work like Marthas—bearing fruit uniquely as women, wives, moms, and friends in our hurried world for the glory of God.

Safe, fun, Jesus-focused childcare is essential and free!

Parked on Base is a ministry open to all married women at Camp Pendleton. Its purpose is to encourage military wives in their unique and ordinary roles as women from Scripture. We discuss challenges and joys that are common to all women as well as those that are specific to family life and marriage in the Marine Corp. Union Church is thankful for these women and for their sacrifice.
We provide childcare for those who have preschool age children. Come join us!
