Christian Theater Workshop
Christian Theater Workshop is around the corner! Our 2024 Day Camp will be July 15-19 from 9am-3pm, with performances on July 20 & 21.  We are limiting our numbers to 140, the same number we had in attendance last year. Please go ahead and register to help us plan ahead.

Baby Shower
Join us for a baby shower honoring Sydney Singley on Sunday, June 2nd from 1:00-2:00 pm in the Atrium.  Sydney is registered at and is requesting diapers and wipes.  The gender will be revealed when the baby is born. 
Baby Bottle Campaign
Keep on filling up those baby bottles!  This will help support True Options Pregnancy Center in Sherman, where local women choose LIFE for their babies. The drive runs from Mother’s Day through Father’s Day. Return date is June 16.
Children’s Books
We have been given the go ahead by the Denison Public Library to purchase some Christian themed books for children that will be placed in circulation. Our hope is that these books will be a blessing to families who check out these books and learn of the message of the Bible—maybe for the first time! Our goal is to raise $400 for this project. If you would like to contribute to this fund, please contact Rachel McClure.
Opportunities to Serve Young Families  
The children’s ministry is seeking someone to teach and assist in the toddlers class on Wednesday evenings this summer. If you are looking for ways to serve contact Rachel McClure at 903-624-6156. 
Promotion Sunday
Bible class promotion for school age children going to the next grade level will take place on Sunday, June 2nd. 
CASA Mission Trip, June 28-July 6
Registration is open online. The cost is $250 per person.  Contact Basil if you have any questions.
PAWS will take a break for the next few weeks. We plan on having a lighter meal called PAWS Lite on Wednesday nights during the summer months beginning on June 12th.   
Church at the Park
Make plans to join us on Wednesday, June 5th at 6:00 p.m. at Munson Park for burgers and hotdogs.  Bring a lawn chair and some dollars to make a small donation to offset the cost of the food. We will have games and enjoy a time of fellowship.
Church Health Assessment
There is just one week left to take the Church Health Assessment! This is an important tool for us as we prayerfully and carefully plan for the future. It just takes 5-10 minutes and is completely anonymous. We appreciate everyone's input and participation as we "press on" towards the future at Park Avenue! 
Disaster Relief Effort
Within the next few weeks, we are joining Victory Life Church in Durant, in their relief efforts following the recent tornadoes in the Sulphur area. They will need help demolishing 12 properties in the area but there will also be plenty less strenuous work. All help is definitely appreciated! Contact Todd Detro or the church office for more information.
