 As Christians, we acknowledge the need for community. Genuine fellowship binds us one another and to God.  At Park Road we seek to build a faith community which is inclusive, supportive, and nourishing for the growth of our community of faith.

 “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:20)
