Experience what makes
Park Avenue United Methodist Church

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 (address & directions here) in South Minneapolis for over 100 years, and we’d love for you to be a part of the next 100!

Lenten Bible Study begins Wednesday, March 13
You’re invited to join us for a six-week Wednesday night Lenten series, a Bible study of Genesis 41 “Joseph Interpreting Pharaoh’s Dreams”. The study will be led by our pastors Rev. Jia Starr-Brown and Rev. Gloria Roach Thomas, who will look at the text through a spiritual lens, examining concepts such as abundance and scarcity, and the Creation Care Team, who will look at the text starting with the natural resources (e.g. water, grain) and how they set context for the spiritual choices.
Activities for children & youth are available at church on Wednesday evenings as well … AND there will be a free soup supper beforehand for everyone.
We will soon be submitting a statement from our church regarding the recent decision regarding human sexuality in the United Methodist Church. Visit the MN Annual Conference page for more information from our denomination, and we recommend you watch this video.
