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.
This morning I am starting a new series, The Bible—Wonderful Words of Life. For the next several weeks I will give a birds-eye view of the Bible and talk about the centrality and importance this book has in our lives and why we can trust it as the revealed word of God.
Next 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! We hope all of us can be there to celebrate this milestone.
