All-Church Meeting with Q&A | Fri, Jun 11
FRI JUN 11, 7:00 PM
Park Street Church is holding an All-Church Meeting on FRI, JUN 11. This meeting will provide an opportunity to touch base as a community and to hear updates from the staff and elders as we transition into the summer. We will address the reopening plans as well, and there will also be time for Q&A.
This will be a hybrid event, and preregistration is required to attend in-person or over Zoom. Questions will be taken in person or online so that everyone will be able to participate. We look forward to this time of communication and connection as a church family.
Reception in honor of Pat Chen’s Ministry | TODAY, Sun, May 16
Children’s Church is Open!
Children’s Church for ages 3–6 has reopened! If you would like your child to join Children’s Church for the 8:30 AM service on Sundays, please pre-register them by the Friday before service. Sign up through the regular Sunday pre-registration link, found below.
Missionary Housing and Vehicles needed
Some of our missionaries who will be in town this summer and fall are in need of temporary housing and vehicles to borrow. Please contact the Missions Office if you or someone you know might be able to help.
Come with us as we journey along the Rocky Railway and learn how Jesus’ power pulls us through! This year Kidsweek will be virtual again. The two primary reasons for making this decision are the uncertainty of government crowd restrictions at that point and the uncertainty around people’s readiness to be in large crowds. This year, we will host live watch parties in the morning, and encourage families to team-up to do Kidsweek together! We are hopeful that in 2022, we will return to a full and robust in-person program!
Tweens will go on a field trip to Canobie Lake Park during the week. The field trip will be optional and have an added cost. At the end of our week, we will have an outdoor meet-up at a park.

Global Engagement Projects
Support the work of our global missionaries and partners through a virtual Global Engagement Project. Whether you are an IT “nerd,” teacher, entrepreneur, medical professional, or anyone else wanting to make an impact for the Kingdom, there is an opportunity for you. Check out www.parkstreet.org/global-missions for information about the following projects and more.
Professional Development Webinars
Do you have professional skills or practical wisdom to share? Work with a team to develop a series of webinars on a variety of professional development topics. These virtual training events are intended to build cross-cultural relationships with English-speaking professionals and entrepreneurs from Central Asia and to help our global missionaries develop mentoring opportunities infused with a gospel witness.
Mentor Central Asian Youth
Mentors needed for high school kids in Central Asia. Work with a secular non-profit that helps kids apply to top universities in the country and around the world. In addition to TOEFL and SAT tutoring, they are looking for mentors who are willing to meet with the kids and help them explore specific areas of study and various professions. Each mentor meets regularly with only one student over Zoom for a 10-week session this summer. No expertise in academia required as the heart is simply to give encouragement, ideas, and support to kids with consistent interaction in English. However, we would ask for a solid commitment to meet for the entire session.
