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 in South Minneapolis for over 100 years, and we’d love for you to be a part of the next 100!


As we experience staff transitions, please join us to celebrate “God at Work” here at Park Avenue United Methodist Church! Find out more here.
