The Park Church loves missions.  Because of God's goodness,

we are blessed to actively participate in many mission fields around the world.

I T ' S   G O !   T I M E 

On May 5th, we will collectively move in faith and dedicate our entire offering to The Lord to do with what only He can do.  

We will humbly give donations and pledges to support the Missions He has brought before us to pray over, encourage, and GIVE to.

It's Go! Time .... Let's begin in PRAYER, and see how GOD moves in us and through us ....

Giving to Missions at The Park Church of Christ
