Hamilton Park’s Response to COVID-19

Together We Test

COVID-19 Community Testing

Tuesday, June 30, 2020
9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Hamilton Park – Parking Lot
Participants are asked to wear masks and practice social distancing.
Bring insurance card or have/know your SSN.
Testing age 13 and older.

Free community testing provided by Project Unity, Catalyst Health Network, and Clinical Pathology Laboratories in partnership with Hamilton Park United Methodist Church.

Our church will serve as a free testing site for COVID-19 on two Tuesdays, June 16 and June 30, 2020, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The testing will be done outside in our parking lot. Persons may drive to our church, or walk, but they will walk through the various testing stations across our parking lot.

The testing site is made possible by the “We Need to Survive” initiative of Rev. Richie Butler‘s (St. Paul UMC) Project Unity program. There is no cost to the church, and I want to assure those with concern, there will be no contamination of our church. No persons with COVID-19 will enter our building. Also, you will not put yourself at risk if you choose to come and get tested.

Some may wonder why we should put ourselves in harm’s way. I do believe that just like our eleven weeks of weekday feedings to the community, this COVID-19 testing is God’s work. Matthew 16:25 tells us, “Whoever tries to save their lives will lose it, but those who lose their lives for me will find it.”

The 75243 zip code has long been plagued with high COVID-19 infections. Now Dallas County is experiencing soaring COVID-19 infection rates, and we are ranked number five in the national hot spot list.

Our Hamilton Park community is filled with African Americans and Hispanic persons. Both groups are hit hard by this virus. We cannot and will not sit idly by and watch our community perish. If you’d like to volunteer, reach out to Art Mosley at amosley@theparkumc.org. If you cannot come by for testing, we understand. Many of our members are in the vulnerable category. What we ask is that you:

  1. Celebrate what God is doing at your church.
  2. Spread the word of the free testing
  3. Pray for us on the frontline.
