Fall Kickoff | Today after each service

Please plan to pack a picnic blanket. Accessible seating will also be available indoors. We look forward to seeing you there!

We are in need of volunteers to help with welcoming and meals on SUN, SEP 11. Also, we need help preparing the food on SAT, SEP 10. If you are interested, please email Randall Wetzig ([email protected]).

Christian Formation Series: Faithfulness in a Time of Political Upheaval

Five–week series beginning SUN, OCT 2 | 9:45 AM & 5:30 PM

How does theology inform our faithful engagement of politics? With increasing politicization and social divisions, Christians find themselves in need of understanding the role of theology and the church in expressing a faithful political presence. This seminar series aims to highlight key features of a Christian theology that informs Christian faithfulness in a time of political upheaval. This series does not endorse any candidates or political parties, but aims to help Christians think theologically. Guest speakers include Vincent Bacote (Wheaton), James Hunter (University of Virginia), and Amy Black (Wheaton). This series will run throughout Sundays in October. For more information and to register, follow the link below.


Small Group Regional Onboarding Dinners

To create a clear pathway for people in our community to join a small group, there will be small group onboarding dinners in each of the Boston metro regions this fall. Representatives from multiple small groups in your region will be at the dinner so that those looking for a small group can find one.

We would love for everyone to be connected in relationships at Park Street Church. If you’d like to join a small group this year, please consider attending one of these dinners. To RSVP, follow the link below.
