Life can be lived alone, but we believe the spiritual life God has called us to at Park Avenue is better lived in groups. We have many types of groups at Park Avenue that meet at various times and with various purposes. Some groups meet for support, some for fellowship and others for Bible Study
At Park Avenue, we have three types of group ministry:
Community Hour Groups
These groups are generally larger than small groups and meet on campus during our Sunday morning Community Hour (9am – 10am). The primary purpose of these groups is to offer life-transforming Bible study and to provide caring ministry. We have many ongoing Community Hour groups that meet year long and also topical short-term groups (10 – 12 weeks in length) offered three different times a year.
These adult groups meet in homes weekly for fellowship, encouragement, support and life on life transformation. We value the importance of mutual sharing within a small group so the typical small group is no larger than 14 people. We see small groups as the primary way in which members of Park Avenue are cared for and discipled in their spiritual growth journey.
These groups are specifically designed to help those in our body who have a need for support in a specific season of life. The weekly meetings include a large group setting followed by smaller breakout groups. Griefshare, DivorceCare, Single and Parenting and Financial Peace University are examples of the support groups we offer at Park Avenue. These groups are seasonal and short term.
