Serving Locally

Adopt a Highway

For 20 years Park Ave UMC has been responsible for cleaning trash from a two mile stretch of PA 997 from Rt. 11N to the foot of Air Hill. Twice a year volunteers meet for breakfast at Greenvillage followed by trash pickup.

Cluster Clothing Ministry

Along with First UMC and St. Paul UMC, Park Ave supports the cluster clothing ministry. Housed at First UMC at the corner of S Second and Washington Streets, this ministry provides free clothing, shoes, and household goods. Park Ave serves as a storage site for off-season clothes, larger items, and holiday decorations.

Prayer Shawl & Prayer Square Ministry

Through the efforts of our Crafters, prayer shawls are available for anyone in need. These crocheted shawls are prayerfully created and blessed during a Sunday worship service. They are offered to all of our homebound members and friends and anyone experiencing grief or illness. Prayer squares are given to those who have received a prayer shawl but continue to have ongoing needs.

Worship at Shook Home

Several times a year our church leads worship at Shook Home. We extend the love of Christ through preaching, music, and prayer.

NETwork Ministries

We travel monthly to NETwork Ministries after-school care program to deliver and serve snacks to the elementary children.

Food Collection for St. Paul UMC

We collect non-perishable for items for St. Paul’s emergency food bank on the first and third Sundays of the month.

Blessings Box

At the corner of Park Avenue and Edgar Avenue our Blessings Box is to help our community. Give what you can, take what you need.
