Fifth Sunday Debt Reduction, Sunday, October 31
October 31 is our last Fifth Sunday of the year. The entire contribution will go to pay off the debt on the Ark. Our plan is to pay off the remaining debt by the end of 2021 and that Sunday’s contribution will go a long way towards that goal. The church has been so generous over the years as we have been able to reduce that loan from 25 years to less than 12 years saving us thousands of dollars in interest and allowing us to soon direct that money elsewhere. Please prayerfully consider your financial gift that Sunday.

Good morning and welcome to our time of worship. A special welcome to our guests. Please scan the QR code below and complete a communication card so we can get to know you. In addition, you can submit prayer requests or any questions you might have about Park Avenue.
We’ll take a break from the parables today as David Fraze brings us the message this morning. David and his wife Lisa both work for Lubbock Christian University, one of the colleges associated with the Churches of Christ. Those of you with high school kids, I'm sure the Frazes’ would be glad to get you in touch with LCU as you explore options for higher education. Christian education has been such a blessing in my life and my family’s life and I encourage you to consider one of our colleges.
We have several needs for volunteers in the various ministries we are involved in. If you’re looking for a place to serve, please contact the church office and we will put you in touch with a ministry leader.
