 Our Mission, Our Calling!
Gifted by our Creator, we at Park United Methodist Church follow the way of Jesus as led by the Holy Spirit; as a community of faith and love, our mission is to make and mature disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world.

We are remembering and renewing our five baptismal promises -
These devotionals will open our hearts to the Spirit of Compassion.

Please pray for the needs of our mission field and our world.

  • For the Kenmore Community
  • For those addicted to drugs and alcohol and their families
  • For the homeless and underserved in our country
  • For those facing drought and starvation in the Sudan
  • For those killed by the attack on the hospital in Afghanistan
  • For women around the world that they are accorded full dignity and opportunity as they are daughters of the King

Praying for the Persecuted Church—Pray for Christians in Kenya, that the Lord will protect believers living in areas vulnerable to attach by al-Shabaab Islamist militants.  Pray that al-Shabaab will be defeated and that the spread of Islamist ideology in Kenya will be halted. Give thanks that the Kenyan government reversed its decision to implement tight restrictions on churches; pray that there will be no further attempts to curtail religious freedoms in Kenya.  (From Barnabas prayer guide for March/April 2017)
