Whats happening at Parkway. [Scroll down to view older posts.]
Wednesdays | 6:30 – 7:30pm | Fellowship Hall
What does it mean to be part of the Church Family? We will discover what a gift we have being a part of this unique church family and how it aids us in our daily lives. There will be games and candy, snacks and door prizes as well. We have a blast every Wednesday night so come and be a part of our fellowship, you’ll be glad you did! Hope to see there!
This year’s budget meeting reflected Parkway’s strengths. The Stewardship Commission (with the help of so many others on committees and staff) did a fabulous job of preparing and presenting the budget for 2014.
The budget reflects the gratitude and faith we have in our ministers and staff. It reaffirms our commitment to sound fiscal policy and generous support of mission. The meeting was conducted in a an orderly manner, and all those present were given the opportunity to ask questions and propose amendments. Our Council President Marsha Peek gave a first-rate “State of the Church” address. We can look ahead with confidence and gratitude. Thanks be to God! -Dottie Dwyer
Monday, January 20 |4:00pm | St Stanislaus
Every year on the third Monday of January we celebrate the life and achievements of a modern day prophet and martyr, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He was an important civil rights activist and a leader in the struggle to end racial segregation in the United States. His most famous address was the I Have A Dream speech. Dr. King was an advocate of non-violent protest and became the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He was assassinated in 1968.
To honor his work and memory, on January 20th at 4:00 pm, we will host an Ecumenical Martin Luther King Service with various religious and civil leaders from our city. After the service light refreshments will be served at the PolishheritageCenter. Please, join us on this first of its kind celebration at St. Stanislaus!
Worship, Budget Forums, Town Meeting
Sunday, January 12
Before or after the worship service of your choice, you’re invited to attend the budget forum during Adult Education at 9:30 and 11:00 to discuss the 2014 proposed budget with members of the Stewardship Commission and the Church Council. Then plan to stay for a light lunch beginning at 11:50 followed by our first Parkway Town Meeting. We will share an update on the action plans developed at the summer leadership retreat-strengthening worship, building relationships, and developing our identity. There will also be an opportunity for open conversation and discussion, listening and sharing of future dreams and visioning as we begin our 176th year!
Child care will be provided. We should be finished around 1:30pm. Please RSVP for the light lunch: Marsha Peek 314-413-1440 | email@example.com or Steffanie Rauscher 314 920-2979 firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, please place on your calendars Sunday, January 26. After worshipping together at the One Family Worship at 10:00 am, we will gather for our Annual Budget Meeting with coffee and fellowship following the meeting.
Sunday, January 26 | following 10:00am One Family Worship
Immediately following the 10:00am worship, grab a snack in the Gathering Area and come into Fellowship Hall. The 2014 budget will be presented and discussed, ending with a congregational vote to approve the finalized budget. The annual budget looks like a lot of boring numbers, but it’s much more than that—it’s the foundation for PUCC’s ongoing ministry! The Stewardship Commission and Church Council have been preparing for this meeting for quite some time. Come celebrate PUCC in our 176th year and catch the winds of the Spirit.
