CONNECT  

At Park Avenue Baptist Church we believe that fellowship is an incredibly important part of one’s walk with Jesus.  Fellowship can strengthen us in our faith, and lead to some wonderful friendships!  So we invite you to join us for some of our groups and Bible Studies!  Hebrews 10:25 says: “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another; and so much more, as ye see the day approaching.”
