Parent & Church Commitment Sunday
Today we honor our families with new babies, and commit as a church body to assist them in their children's spiritual development. Congratulations and blessings to these families. 

Our sympathy is with Cheryl McKee after the passing of her brother, Michael McKee, on August 21st.  A memorial Service was held last Friday.
Thank You’s
We appreciate so much you helping us celebrate 60 years of marriage.  Unfortunately, Kay suffered an embolism during this time and we again appreciate so very much the food, the calls, the cards, and other expressions of concern during her hospitalization and rehab.  We love you dearly and look forward to joining you in worship and fellowship soon.  We are so thankful for Park Avenue.  Kay & Don Skelton
Our most sincere thanks for all of the calls, text messages, cards, visits, and especially for all of the prayers.  Kelly and I cannot express the full extent of our appreciation.  This we know; the prayers of the saints are more precious than gold and silver and are the most powerful force available to us all.  David & Kelly Howerton
