Park Avenue Wednesday Supper
This week we are having Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Veggie Burgers, Salad, Chips, & Desserts. The meal will be prepared by Amyee McAlister & her team. Sign up on your communication card Sunday morning to let us know if you plan to attend so we can plan accordingly! Thank you!
Good morning and welcome to our worship service. A special welcome to our guests. If you have any questions about Park Avenue or Christianity in general, feel free to track one of our ministers or elders down or contact us any time.
Just a reminder to everyone to get connected in a DMC. We have had a great kickoff to our Fall Wednesday communities but know that there is room for you. Join us at 5:30 for our PAWS meal and stick around for some time in the Word with other believers. Our kids classes are going strong, so bring them along. If Wednesday doesn't work, we have groups meeting other nights of the week. Check out all the offerings on our digital platforms.
We are blessed today to have a guest speaker with us, Dr. David Fraze. David is leading our Front Porch Parenting seminar that will continue this afternoon. He has years of experience with youth and families and presently serves at Lubbock Christian University. Looking forward to his words from The Word today.
Let’s worship the Lord!
On Sunday, October 2 we will have a congregational celebration in recognition of paying off the ARK. All are invited to stay after Sunday worship for a catered lunch to celebrate together, worship, and reflect on this historic moment for Park Avenue! What an amazing ministry tool that building has been and continues to be. That construction project was a bold move by the leadership, but we have been blessed as we were Faithful to the Call!
As this is a catered event we need your RSVP TODAY! You can do that on the app or respond to the email or text you will receive today. We hope all of us can be there to celebrate this milestone.
