Rehearsals for Annual Christmas Pageant
One of the most anticipated and special events of the year is coming to Parkway UCC on December 16, 2012. The children of our church are getting ready for our Traditional Annual Christmas Pageant. This year, it is Not So Silent Night, a play about three shepherds being accused of disturbing the peace. From the senior high students to the pre-school excitement is growing on who will get to be the judge, witnesses, shepherds, angels, and Mary and Joseph. Come join us on Dec. 2 as we pick parts and costumes. There will be 2 mandatory rehearsals for speaking parts, December 9 during Sunday School at 9:30 and Saturday, December 15.

Prom Committee Needed
PUCC is hosting our very own prom (for all ages) on Saturday, February 9. Just like in high school, we need a committee to plan this magical evening. We seek volunteers from a variety of age groups so this prom has something for everyone. This will not be a big time commitment. Enthusiasm is a must!
Please contact Lisa Mason: lmason624@sbcglobal.net | 314-569-0095 me if you are willing to be part of the planning.

Fair Trade Chocolate TODAY: We are selling Equal Exchange Fair Trade coffee, as well as CHOCOLATE today and November 10. Look for the table in the Gathering Space between services.

The labor for the production of these products is not exploited—especially in the chocolate market. We have quality products for just a little more that the mass-marketed Folgers, etc. and can feel virtuous and helpful as we sip (or munch). See you at church. SS

Words Matter! A Book Study

Tuesday, November 6 | 6:30-8:00pm | Pastor Kevin’s office

Speaking Christian: Why Christian Words Have Lost Their Meaning and Power – And How They Can Be Restored by Marcus Borg.

In the 4th century, Christianity began to focus largely on the afterlife and the post-mortem fate of people. But Christianity’s initial focus was on compassion and God’s dream for a just and peaceful world in the here and now. Unfortunately, this original interpretation of the Bible has been overshadowed by “heaven and hell Christianity.” As Borg illustrates, modern Christianity has lost its transformative power because of a literalism that has impoverished the meaning of the Bible and a consequent misunderstanding of Christianity’s core ideas.

 

2nd & 4th Tuesdays| 6:00pm | Heritage Rm | Childcare provided

We skip to chapter 6 for our October 23 meeting.

Child Care Position Opening
We are presently seeking a part time child care provider. Our current provider is graduating from college and will be leaving us.

We are seeking someone to begin this summer to overlap with our current provider for training. The individual should be 18 years of age or older, reliable and enjoy working with children. The position would be for 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings for TED (6-8:00 PM; sometimes 8:30 or 9:00 on CE meeting nights); and for every Wed night during choir practice.  In addition, our current provider often filled in on various other nights or weekends when a committee called her for childcare. She usually had a variety of ages of kids for the evening babysitting (ranging from 0-10 or so). She used various rooms in the church depending on the age of the children she had and room availability. If no children were there for babysitting, she would leave by 7:00 on those nights but she was paid for the 2 hour time frame. She also filled in for Melissa on Sunday mornings when needed, and Melissa would fill in for her on weeknights when needed. She also helped with various summer events such as babysitting in the nursery during VBS. 

If you know of any interested and qualified individuals from outside of the PUCC community, please invite them to provide a resume to Karen Nolte at knolte862@gmail.com.

Can’t remember the date/time of that PUCC outing? No worries! Bulletin announcements, weekly email, The Good News newsletter and the church calendar are all on our website: www.parkwayucc.org. Check it out for all these things and more!
