Worship & Music

Contemporary Worship

The 10:40 Band leads worship for the Contemporary service at Park Avenue. Our contemporary worship is focused on centering our hearts and mind on God as we prepare to receive the message from our Pastor. Our contemporary band utilizes both contemporary Christian songs and traditional hymns to proclaim God’s sovereignty, Jesus’ sacrifice and saving grace, and the power of the Holy Spirit in the believer’s life.
