Community Outreach Ministry

OUR  MISSION
 
The Community Outreach Ministry of Park Avenue Christian Church Disciples of Christ provides a variety of educational, economic and social services to Oranges of New Jersey and surrounding communities.  In pursuit of this mission, our membership strives to foster, energize and connect people with services and opportunities.  Establish key relationships with local charity organizations to develop, promote and provide service opportunities in the areas of special need

 
 OUR VISION
 
We are dedicated to building a strong community and committed to supporting activities that enhance and serve the communities in which we live.  Community involvement and volunteerism is an integral component of our culture.  We believe giving back to the community is a “win-win” scenario for both Park Avenue and the organizations that we support.  Our volunteer activities boost morale, strengthens us and our communities and improves communication and community relations.
