Wamsley Family Benefit Dinner

Immediately following our Worship Service


This special time of fellowship will be to share our love to the Wamsley family.  As most of you know, Terry recently has not been able to work because of illness which required hospitalizations.  We would like reach out and show our love by sharing gift cards or cash.  Any amount or type (grocery, gas, retail, cash) will be placed on a BLESSING TREE and given to them during this carry in luncheon.   







Fall Event at Park Church for Kids and Youth


We will be doing Trunk or Treat again this year. This will take place in our back parking lot if no rain, if rain we will have it inside in the gym where you will be able to decorate a table. We welcome all cars, trucks and SUV’s. We will be holding this on Sunday October 14th from 4pm – 6:30pm. We would love to see the parking lot full. We do ask that you decorate your trunk, back of truck or SUV with kid friendly decorations, please no scary items or blood.

What is Trunk or Treat?

Trunk or Treat evens bring Halloween to parking lots where kids go from car to car and get candy. They are popular at schools, churches, in rural areas where homes are far apart, and in places where trick-or-treating isn’t safe.

If you have any questions or want to help and or have a car there to decorate & pass out candy, please let Kimmie Kesler know by calling 330-606-9961 or email:

Thank You.
