Greetings from Pastor Leah
There is a lot going on at Park Avenue this month, and lots to be excited about! As the days shorten and the leaves begin to change, I’d like to highlight a few ways I’ll be connecting with the congregation this month.
Our Sermon Series on Spiritual Practices continues on Sunday mornings this month and next. See the next page for the schedule. Talking about spiritual practices is a way for us to explore attitudes that will help us deepen our faith, while reminding us that we don’t have to get it perfect – we can keep practicing. I’m excited to discover these together with you and to hear what practices keep you connected to God. Drop me a line to share!
We’re also doing a series of Meet and Greets in the months of October and November so that I can get to know you all better. See the schedule and ways to sign up on the next page. We’ll start off with some socializing and refreshments, then share a conversation about what PACC means to you, about your hopes and dreams for our future together. These conversations will be a way for me to hear what matters to you most and to begin to discern where God might be leading us.
Bible Study is up and running on 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. We’ll be digging into the book of Jonah this fall. Do you have to literally believe that Jonah survived three days inside a fish to get something out of this story? What can Jonah teach us about crankiness and compassion? And what does Jonah have in common with the Simpsons? Come find out!
I hope you’ll join us for one or more of these events so that I can get to know you better. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to reach out to me with questions, comments, or just to talk!
