Life of the Church
SUNDAY MAY 22, 2022
Join a Park Street Church Welcome Team
We need your help welcoming! This opportunity is for everyone, but if you’re new to the church, this a great first step for jumping into our community. Joining a Welcome Team or Coffee Hour Team is a wonderful way to connect with others while serving. You’ll join a consistent small group to welcome others into the church at one or two services a month.
We are pleased to announce that the Emergency Relief–Afghan Fund and the Deacon’s Fund have healthy balances, so feel free to focus on supporting the Ministry & Operations budget and Missions budget as you consider giving in order to keep on pace with budgeted giving.
To continue supporting World Relief’s response to the refugee crisis in Ukraine, designate your online gift to “World Relief Sunday – Ukraine” or by writing “Ukraine” on your giving envelope or check memo. Listen to a personal testimony about World Relief from Walter Kim, a former Park Street minister and current president of the National Association of Evangelicals, and visit the link below if you would like to give online.
