Good Morning
Park Avenue Family!

Events & Announcements

Update Your Information

Over the last several years, the leadership of Park Avenue UMC has made it a priority to inform and update our congregation on the evolving situation over the theological divide that will likely result in a split of our denomination. As we continue to follow these events, we want to be sure to do two things: 1) keep you up to do on developments, and 2) seek your input regarding potential changes regarding our denomination.

The best way to assure that you receive this information is by updating your profile at, Park Avenue’s database system and online community.

Please login to with  your username and password, or chose the option to Request Account. (You can also reset your password if you've forgotten your credentials.)

If you are unable to do either of the above options, then you may click here to fill out a form where someone on staff will manually enter your information for you.

The Staff and Church Leadership thank you for your cooperation in helping us keep you informed!
