We currently have four life saving devices here at Park Avenue. Two are in the main building and two are in the ARK. Each building has a Philips AED which is used for heart attack victims. Each building has a new device called a LifeVac. This device is used on choking victims. The LifeVac devices are located on a wall by the kitchen in each building. Please take the time to watch a short video explaining the proper use of each device. If you will familiarize yourself with the proper use of these devices, you may be in a position to help save a life one day. Below are the websites for access to the video for each device.

Good morning and welcome to our worship service. A special welcome to our guests. Let us know if you have any questions about what we are all about.
Next Sunday, March 19th we will host a reception in the Atrium honoring Billy Martindale, David Howerton and Kevin Dale who are concluding their service as Elders. During the coffee-donut fellowship time from 9:00-9:45 everyone is invited to come and visit with these men. Breakfast items will be served and we welcome cards of appreciation to these men for their service to the Park Avenue Church of Christ. We will dismiss class for that morning. Hope you can be there!
Our Grace Offering is Sunday, April 9. Our financial goal is $156,100, almost 8 times our weekly budget. Please be prayerful about how you can support the outreach ministries of PACOC. The Grace Offering kicks off the week before Easter on Sunday, April 2 as Daisy’s Little Red Wagon makes its annual appearance for our children’s coin collection. This year we have been able to add two new mission points in Colombia and Monterrey. Be on the lookout for more details in the weeks to come.
