Park Street Church is a family-friendly community of faith, offering a vibrant ministry to children, youth and parents. God has created the institution of the family as a means to help us understand the intimate relationship that exists between our heavenly Father and his children and between brothers and sisters in Christ. Thus, we strive to be a church that actively supports families because it honors God, it upholds his creative order and it offers us the ability to understand more deeply his love for his people.
Family Ministry at Park Street provides a wide array of groups, gatherings and events in which families can make connections, grow in their faith, worship together and use their gifts to care for others. Here are some highlights:
Every Friday night during the academic year, the church is filled with children, youth and their parents from 7–9 pm.
