Mission Statement

Why Statement

On Pentecost 2018, after many months of prayerful discussion and discernment, Park Avenue Congregational Church introduced its “Why” statement – the reason we are a part of this community and what we hope belonging here helps us do:

To practice deep and fulfilling connection with God and each other, so that we can live as true neighbors, belonging to and caring for others as our own.

Our “Why” statement guides us as we embrace the many different ways we feel called to follow God, helping us prioritize our work and discover new avenues for living out the Gospel.
