Divorced? Separated? We can help. Find help. Discover hope. Experience healing. DivorceCare helps you recover from the pain of separation and divorce. DivorceCare is a support group that meets weekly. You'll find a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an oasis in an otherwise difficult season of life. There are three key elements to your DivorceCare experience: video seminar, group discussion and personal workbook.
Unless you've been there it's hard to understand the hurt that comes from separation and divorce. That's why many of your friends and family don't fully understand what you are going through and don't know how to best help you.
We do. DivorceCare groups are led by people who have been through divorce and successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel because we've been in the same place. We'll show you how to deal with the hurt caused by your separation and divorce.
DivorceCare is a network of 13,000+ churches worldwide equipped to offer divorce support groups. The program is non-demonominational and features biblical teaching for recovering from divorce or separation. Learn more about DivorceCare. Join our Meetup group to keep posted on our meeting calendar.

What is IF?
IF is a movement that exists to gather, equip and unleash the next generation of women to live out their purpose. It asks the question, “what IF we returned to the simple ways of the early church?” IF:Gathering is a conference for women taking place in Austin, Texas, on February 3 and 4, 2017 that will focus around this question. If you are wrestling with your faith, we hope you will find this gathering a safe deep place to wrestle. IF values authenticity, participation, humility, honor, and Christ-centeredness.
IF:Boston is a simulcast of the IF:Gathering taking place in Austin, hosted by Park Street Church. We will be able to hear all the speakers in Austin but have breakout discussions and mealtimes with small groups here. As for the cost, we are asking for a $30 donation to cover our costs (materials, dinner on Friday, space, etc.). If you feel led to give more, we will graciously accept it. If you would like a scholarship, please email the IF:Boston team.
We are in need of two kinds of volunteers. First, please help us spread the word! We have a toolkit available that will make it easy for you to invite other members of your congregation and your network of friends. Second, we are in need of volunteers to help set up, run the conference, and clean up afterwards. To help either way, please email IF:Boston and we’ll connect you with everything you need!
Park Street Church is large by New England standards, and it is sometimes hard to know how to break into community here. The seven-week new members small group class is a great way to get to know the theology, vision, and ministries of the church, as well fellow new members and the minister who teaches the class. There are four different classes offered:
Sundays, 9:30-10:45am (before 11am service)
Sundays, 10-11:15am (after 8:30 am service)
Sundays, 5:30-6:45pm (after 4pm service)
Pre-registration is required. Please click here to register: New Members Pre-registration.
If you have any questions, please contact Toni Kim, Minister of Membership.
Sundays 9:45-10:45 AM
College Class: Ethics, Empathy & Action
Chris & Liz Lawson (Terrace Room)
STARTS JAN 29. As Christians, how we respond to ethical complexity in our society helps us establish either bridges or barriers to the Gospel. Come join other college students as we explore how Christian ethics, pastoral care, and intentional actions intersect on complex issues such as racism, poverty, immigration, same-sex marriage, politics, and more.
Bible Study for Internationals
(Park Street Room)
Understand the claims of Christ and the meaning of Scripture in a clear way, using English text. All internationals welcomed, including families with kids in the children’s programs.
1 & 2 Kings
Perry & Elaine Phillips, Jordan & Sarah Montgomery (Granary Room)
While Kings David and Solomon are familiar territory, often the subsequent 300 years of history are a bit of a muddle. Join us as we make our way from Solomon through the split in the Israelite monarchy, the failures of kings and people to keep God’s covenant, the exile of the northern kingdom, and the eventual fall of the southern Davidic dynasty.
David Freeman, Mary Harvey & Norm Graf (Common Room)
Several books of the Bible have a claim to being foundational. Genesis presents the foundations of everything. We invite you to join us in looking at God’s plan for mankind from its very beginning.

Should we not be concerned about refugees? Last year the U.S. resettled 84,955 refugees -- which is less than 1% of the 65.3 million people displaced worldwide due to war and persecution. As of January 28, the U.S. is no longer admitting refugees and the entire U.S. refugee admission and resettlement program is suspended at least through May.
As evangelical Christians, we are deeply concerned because we take seriously Jesus' command to "love our neighbor as we love ourselves."
Join us this Sunday, February 12 at 12:30 PM. During lunch, we will hear a brief update on the Park Street ministry to refugees. After a time of corporate bidding prayer led by ministry leaders, we will hear about some ways that we can express care and concern for refugees and Muslim neighbors in Boston. In fact, during the last portion of our luncheon, we will have supplies for anyone wanting to write short notes of encouragement and good will to local Muslim communities or an Islamic center.
Cost: free, donations accepted
Registration: preferred, walk-ins OK Got a question? Register for Lunch
Sundays 5:15–6:15 PM
Christ & Culture: Contemporary Challenges
Walter Kim, Jeff Schuliger and Team (Terrace Room)
Over lunch breaks, in dorm rooms, on Facebook...conversations are happening, sometimes explosively, about race, sexuality, politics, etc. As Christians, how can we engage with others on complex ethical and social challenges? How can we build bridges to the gospels? Come join others in our explorations.
Please note, there will be no evening Christian Education classes on Sunday, February 5.

Each year over President's Day weekend, the Boston Healthcare Fellowship (BHF) community gathers in New Hampshire for a time of rest from the demanding schedule of healthcare employees, researchers, and students. We regularly have over 100 people from all areas of the healthcare field come and fellowship together and encourage each other to draw closer to the Lord. Our goal is to help you engage with your faith in a way which changes how you practice medicine, perform research, and engage with coworkers.
We will leave Friday afternoon, and will be back to Boston around noon on Sunday. The cost for the retreat is $117 for adults and $58 for children. Childcare will be provided during the speaker sessions. This will cover all of the meals for three days and two nights stay at Toah Nipi. If you cannot bring your own sheets or sleeping bag, you may purchase sheets for $7 from Toah Nipi the night you arrive.
Scholarships are available! Follow the registration link for more information.
February 17 - 18
Get set for a weekend exploring the arts as we gather together for our fifth Children’s Hands-on Arts Festival in downtown Boston! Workshops on everything from drama to dance to classical music to culinary creation will encourage children from ages 3 to 11 to explore new areas of interest as they grow.
Each workshop will provide 20 minutes of presentation by the leaders and 35 minutes of hands-on experience for the children. Workshop leaders all have professional training in their area of expertise. Anchoring the weekend will be Dove Award nominee Randall Goodgame, who joined us for Family Camp in 2015!
This will be a fantastic opportunity to invite friends and neighbors!
Randall Goodgame (former “Silly Song” writer for VeggieTales) is the driving force behind Slugs and Bugs. Randall has brought the Slugs and Bugs Live concert into 30 states and Canada. Their videos have surpassed 1.13 million views on YouTube, and most importantly, countless families have been encouraged toward a deeper walk of faith while having a great time together. Age-appropriate life and faith encouragements are woven throughout the concert, and Randall's heart is for each child to leave with a deeper understanding of God's love for them. Slugs and Bugs music rollicks from bluegrass to Dixieland to folk-pop to arena rock with songs you’ll be glad you remember long after the concert is over.
Check out Slugs and Bugs music, videos, download a free app and more!
All-Church dinner @ 6:00 PM
