We invite you to join us in:
The joyous worship of God,
following the teaching of Jesus Christ,
and experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit.
We provide a sanctuary where individuals and families can pray, give thanks for their blessings and participate in God’s healing.
We nurture our growth as Christians through our education programs for all ages.
We offer ourselves for Christian service in order to put our faith into action with others.
As you enter, you will be welcomed into our architecturally unique worship space with its historic Skinner pipe organ. But as rich a part of our heritage as these things are, the best part of your experience will be the people you will encounter while worshiping here. We are an Open and Affirming congregation. We have a traditional service, progressive theology and educational programs for all ages.
Weekly at Park Avenue Church
During the summer months, our communion schedule is modified. We will celebrate communion during worship on July 13. “Mid-month” communion (our intimate service by intinction held following the worship service) will be held July 20.
Christmas in July
Think “cool” in the heat of summer on July 20: Having a Christmas service out of the busy pre-Christmas season, when people are pre-occupied with holiday consumerism, exchanging gifts, and all those other yuletide activities gives us an opportunity to ponder anew the significance of Jesus’s birth without so many distractions. All hymns will be the familiar and joyous Christmas carols.
Evening Bible Group
Pastor Bill continues his “Miracles of the Bible” series with “The Only Miracle of Jesus Found in All Four Gospels, and What That Means for the Church” on Wednesday, July 30, in the Fireplace Room at 7:30pm. All are welcome to attend.
