Classes and Small Groups for Adults

Park Avenue United Methodist Church is committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  We contribute to this work by providing opportunities for individuals to grow in their knowledge and understanding of God’s word while forming authentic community through small groups.

Groups generally meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am and on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm. All are welcome and can join at any time.

In addition, we gather for prayer each Wednesday evening 6:30-7:30pm in the Children’s Village on the lower level as way of nurturing our prayer life and interceding for the needs of the community and the world. Everyone is welcome – you can pray aloud, pray silently, and be involved or silent as you feel most comfortable.

Our Early Risers Sunday Service is also a “small group” opportunity … join us in the Sanctuary from 8-9am!

It’s designed especially for those who enjoy a smaller worship experience, or can’t attend the 10am service due to work or other commitments.

The Early Risers Service is a lay-led, intergenerational praise-filled worship service which includes a diverse line-up of speakers, sharing individual testimonies as well as Biblical teaching messages in a warm, welcoming environment filled with music, scripture, love and prayer. If you are interested in speaking or would like more information about the Park Avenue Early Risers Worship Service, please contact Early Risers Worship Service Coordinators at:
