Fall Forum

FALL FORUMSunday, September 14 | noon – 1:30 | Fellowship Hall

Parkway will hold a Fall Forum on Sunday, September 14 from 12:00 to 1:30 in Fellowship Hall. Child care and a light lunch will be provided. This is in keeping with our plan (initiated last January) to hold town meetings twice a year to provide an open forum for all Parkway folks to share ideas and dreams, ask questions, and be in on planning the future of Parkway Church. This meeting precedes the Fall Leadership Retreat planned for October 24-25, which will incorporate results of the Fall Forum event into its agenda and visions.

 

The agenda for Fall Forum will include issues raised by those attending that day, items previously brought to Council or staff, and some remaining from the January agenda. One carry-over from January was how to strengthen worship. Another issue has come from Leadership Commission about the composition of our Commissions—their size(s), membership requirements, etc. A third concerns a look at how we are living out our Mission and Congregational Statements. A fourth is staff changes and the addition of a contextual education student from Eden Seminary.

 

Please RSVP for the babysitting and light lunch: Steve Penico spenico@hotmail.com or 636-346-4561or Dottie Dwyer dkdwyer@charter.net or 314-821-6073.

An Invitation to One Family Worship this Sunday 8/31

This Sunday, August 31, is a 5th Sunday of the month – a One Family Worship!…which will take place outside in the shade under a wonderful old tree on our lower playground on the north side of the building. Thinking outside the box! Loving nature! One of the things we try to do with some of these One Family Sundays is to experiment with worship and respond to requests and suggestions. We appreciate your willingness to experience the Holy and community in a variety of ways. It helps expand the spirits of our children/youth/adults as it attracts new people.

Our scripture lessons are Exodus 3:1-15 when Moses takes off his sandals because he meets with God on holy ground at the burning bush; the beloved Psalm 23 with rich imagery; and Romans 12:9-21 on how to be a faithful and loving community of faith. Our sermon is entitled Holy Ground. You may want to be ready with a brief story of a sacred place. We will also celebrate the sacrament of communion at our open table. Please consider bringing a friend with you. We will have plenty of chairs set up.

We do have plans of working around mobility concerns and weather possibilities. Don’t fret! Don’t stay home! Call this week if you have questions (314-872-9330). Come a little bit early next Sunday so we can be ready to begin worship at 10:00am. If you are comfortable doing so, you can simply walk downstairs and outside – or we can direct you to drive down Jennifer Lane (a small unmarked street between PUCC and Missouri Baptist Hospital) where there is very limited parking – or you can take advantage of a “shuttle” from the main parking lot down to the site. Please consider bringing fruits or veggies to share immediately after worship. We need a couple/few people to help receive and put out these healthy gifts. We would also like a few volunteers to help with setting up chairs, shuttling and directing people to and from Jennifer Lane.

If you are willing to help make this a success, please email me to let me know that you will bring fruit/veggies, help with parking/shuttle and/or with setup/cleanup. kevin@parkwayucc.org Thank you for being a church of tradition and new expressions!
