a group of God’s people blessed in heritage, vibrant in spirituality, active in service in our own neighborhood and around the world.

Today, we say that the sun never sets on all the people shaped by Park Place Church to love, serve, and lead the church around the world. And that care finds deep expression in our own city. In 2010, the congregation opened Park Place Community Center in the former elementary school nearby. For over 50 years, Park Place Children’s Center has provided outstanding education, care, and developmental activity to the children of greater Anderson.

Our heritage extends to the early days of the arrival of the “Gospel Trumpet family” in Anderson, Indiana in 1906. These earnest believers shared their possessions in common and gave sacrificially of themselves to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. That same quality of deep care and a “sending” passion lives in our midst at Park Place today.

Often people find a circle of care surrounding them as they participate in the church’s worship, shared life of service and various small groups, Sunday School classes, and fellowship circles. 2012 Anderson University graduate, Mark Sipka, walked with us during his entire college career. Mark is now in Los Angeles aspiring to be an actor. He says, “Park Place will always be a part of me. I found so many people who showed me what it means to be a Christian.”

Or, as another brother put it, “Real people doing real life. That’s Park Place!”
