Let’s Get Acquainted

Guests and new members are invited to stay after service next Sunday, August 21, for a “Let’s Get Acquainted” lunch with our ministry staff and elders.

Lady Jacket Breakfast

On the 4 “Home Game Fridays” this fall, PACOC will host the Denison ISD female athletes for a breakfast. Contact todd@parkavenuechurch.com if you would like to volunteer to help serve our students by cooking or cleaning up.  

Upcoming Wednesdays:

  • Wednesday, August 24: End of Summer Cook Off. Our ministers will treat us to a cook out of hot dogs and hamburgers. Join us in the courtyard at 6 PM for food and fellowship! The church will provide sides, drinks, and desserts as well and request a small donation.
  • Wednesday, August 31: Join us in the worship center at 6:30 for another night of praise and prayer. We will reflect on the summer and look forward to what God has in store for Park Avenue this fall and beyond!
  • Wednesday, September 7: PAWS will resume, and new DMCs will begin! DMC signups will be August 21 and 28. Be prayerfully considering how being in community can help transform your heart.

Volunteers Needed

We have a need for Bible class teachers and assistants-male and female-for this Fall! Children in classes, especially Wednesday nights, need volunteers to mentor them. Please contact Rachel McClure at 903-624-6156 to volunteer.


Our senior adult ministry will be gathering for a Pot Luck Dinner on Thursday, August 18, at 5:30 PM in the Atrium.  Make plans to join us for food, fellowship and a presentation by our own Thana Furr on old church buildings and their cultural significance. More details on bringing a dish will be sent out by email soon.
