Our High School Seniors are—Zane Allen, Darrah Borah, Erin Handle, Josh Owens, Ava Sims, Emily Thompson, Kamryn Geesling, Ella Winslett, Matt Rangel, Carter Hayes, Hannah Pettigrew
Focus Groups
As previously announced, we have partnered with the Siburt Institute for Church Ministry (a ministry associated with ACU) to help us prepare for the   next decade as we expect population growth in Texoma and ministry staff retirements/transitions. One aspect of this initiative is to get feedback from the congregation. The first way you can help is to sign up for Focus Groups led by the elders that will solicit your thoughts, ideas, and vision for the Park Avenue Church as we Press On into the future. The groups will be 45–60 minutes and offered on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday nights. The goal is to limit each of these groups to 12 people, so we need you to sign up. Go to to sign up or follow the link in the church app.
Ladies, join us in the ARK on Monday and Friday mornings from 9-12 to play, learn, watch, or just come and enjoy some fellowship. We laugh and have a good time. No equipment is needed to begin with. Contact Shelly Calvert or Kelly Howerton if you have questions.
