Grace Offering is our annual contribution to support the outreach ministries of Park Avenue Church.

We are preparing for our Grace Offering on Easter Sunday, March 31st, with a financial goal of $165,350 to fund our outreach ministries locally and globally. We are calling on everyone to give generously, as this represents almost 8 times our regular weekly budget. We commend our Park Avenue family for your generosity. Since initiating the Grace Offering seven years ago, you have contributed over $1,400,000 to our outreach ministries!

This year, in addition to our ongoing mission points, we are partnering with one new missionary family in Santa Marta, Colombia! We pray that these outreach efforts will continue to spread the message of Jesus and show God's love and compassion to those around us.

Additionally, there is very little church presence of any kind. This team, a partner of Great Cities Missions, is excited to see the church expand into a growing part of the city.
