This week thousands of people of faith around the country will be observing the Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath. We are teaming up with the Washington National Cathedral, the Newtown Foundation Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, and countless houses of worship to remember those who have lost their lives to gunfire, pray for those whose lives have been forever changed because of the loss of a loved one, and to educate one another on proven strategies to reduce gun violence.
November 15 is Consecration Sunday. Our hearts are clearly with the work and ministry of Parkway. Now we have the opportunity to pledge a portion of our treasure to God’s work within our family, our community and the world. This year’s campaign theme helps us remember how our unique work and witness at Parkway touches so many lives. Look for your pledge card in the mail and please prayerfully consider your contribution to carry forward the legacy entrusted to us.

What transpired at the hundreds of sessions at this summer’s UCC General Synod? Come to our next Town Hall Meeting on Sunday, October 18, and hear Kevin share his experiences and insights from his attendance at General Synod in Cleveland. It will include many ideas for new and enhanced programs and experiences at Parkway.
What is a “sabbatical?” Come learn more about this upcoming, exciting renewal opportunity for both Pastor Kevin and the congregation of Parkway UCC. Between now and next June, when the sabbatical begins, we will be planning to create a program for spiritual growth and reflection by both our congregation and our pastor. Come to hear the plans so far, for this program that the congregation approved in January, and discuss how each of us can participate in this journey.
Join us for a light lunch at noon in the Fellowship Hall and be an active part of our enthusiastic spirit at Parkway.
If you worship at 9:30am, please consider staying for the Adult Education session Why God? Which God? in the Heritage Room – beginning at 11:00am. Our presenter will be Rev. Dr. Mark Robinson, a UCC pastoral counselor and a friend of PUCC.
