Experience what makes Park Avenue United Methodist Church unique!

We invite you to join us for worship each and every Sunday at 10am on the corner of 34th Street and Park Avenue in Minneapolis. There is also a smaller, more intimate congregation-led gathering in the Sanctuary at 8am.

Our church has been on the corner of 34th Street and Park Avenue in South Minneapolis for over 100 years, and we’d love for you to be a part of the next 100!

Jazz Service – Sunday, January 15 at 9:45am …
be there early so you don’t miss the Jazz Prelude!

Pastor Will explains …”Miles Davis was once quoted as saying, “When you hit a wrong note, it’s the next note you hit that makes it good or bad,” a word that strikes me as an apt metaphor for a grace-filled life! My own experience and appreciation of jazz as an art form (as in all improvisational forms of music), is that the direction taken by the artist is so often so wonderfully unexpected. It’s that powerful reminder–from a deep place, from the heart of the artist—that when our lives do not (as is inevitably the case) go “according to plan,” when we get blindsided by unexpected beauty or confusion or even suffering, there is often a chance at a “next note”—the place where God meets us and where his grace proves sufficient. It is, in other words, the Good News of the Gospel!

All that to say, I am excited to see what God has in store for us on Sunday, January 15th here at Park as we welcome the gifts of Debbie Duncan and a terrific team of musicians to offer our praise to God in such a unique way! Won’t you join us?
