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!

 Welcome to Youth Director Darelle Williams!

Youth Director Darelle Williams joins the Park Avenue family and is ready to transition into this new role. Welcoming change, Darelle has experience as a leader in various community settings with diverse backgrounds and ages.  Formerly serving as a caretaker and youth minister, he considers himself to be a “natural problem solver”, a listener, with influence and “zeal to share Christ with the next generation”. A product of this community, Darelle’s passion for building relationships and connections with local youth and families is dear to his heart.

Darelle shares … “I’m deeply humbled and honored to be joining such an excellent body of believers. I’m excited to serve alongside the staff and volunteers at Park Avenue Methodist, my prayer is to be an asset and ally for the youth as they find their path in Christ. My family is just as excited as I am. We can’t wait to bond and serve with you all. See you soon, family!”

We welcome Darelle and his talents and graces to Park Avenue!
