The Barnabas Center is an outreach ministry of the Park Avenue Church of Christ which distributes food, clothing, and household items to those in need.  It is located in downtown Denison at 118 W. Chestnut, right across from the back of the Denison Police Department.  If you have a need or would like to make a contribution, call 903-415-0191.

The Center is named in honor of the early disciple Barnabas, who in Acts 4 reportedly sold some of his land to help those in need.  Park Avenue wants to carry on that ideal by sharing our blessings with others.

 

Acts 4:34–37

There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need. Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means Son of Encouragement), sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles’ feet.
