Learn how we as a church can help each other experience more joy towards the Lord, toward each other and toward a world that is so in need of it. The joy of the Lord is indeed our strength!

November Budget Update
The congregation approved budgets for both M&O and Missions last February. Through early November expenses are under control and giving to both M&O and Missions is pretty much equal to last year. We rejoice in that.
While the giving trend is positive, remember that giving tends to be seasonal, with a substantial increase in giving needed in the last two months of the year to finish the year in balance for each of our budgets.
Each year more than one-quarter of the annual budgets are funded by gifts given in the month of December alone. This means that giving in December is typically four times the amount in the average prior month of the year. The accompanying chart shows the needed giving as we approach the end of the year. The most important thing to remember is that God loves a cheerful giver. May each of us give as we are led.
Please also remember that gifts intended for Missions must be designated or identified as such – so when you give to Missions please make sure to note that in the memo line whether online or on the check.
Park Street Church Library
Consider stopping by Park Street Church’s library, where you can find many resources including Christian magazines, DVDs, and of course, books! Our book sections include children’s books, theology, biographies, Bible studies, fiction, and devotional texts. The library is open (right off of the Welcome Center) most Sundays from 9:30 AM-4:00 PM.
