Jesus Has Left the Building3-20-25 Update:

As a part of JHLTB3, we are asking you to do some Spring Cleaning and bring donations of books, shoes, clothes, household items, sports equipment this Sunday, anytime during the week or next Sunday. Please place items in the corner of the Gathering Space by the light switches and History Tower. Thank you!

This experience is back by popular demand! Jesus has left the building in order to feed people; bless children; discover the stranger; provide healing; support and encourage those who were struggling; honor ancestors; appreciate and enjoy nature; and much more.

Join us for a brief worship service where we will sing, pray, hear scripture, share communion and be commissioned to be Christ-like…sent to put our faith into action right away!

Ferguson Response

Share Button


Help us love the people of Ferguson this weekend!

We are pulling together small groups of people to go out for lunch in Ferguson—to five different restaurants—after worship this Sunday, December 21. We anticipate arriving at the restaurants at 12:45pm (Worship and Adult Ed here until noon!)

We invite people to go shopping own their own in Ferguson (maybe even to locally owned businesses) after lunch.

We have also asked three of our Ferguson area UCC siblings (St Peter’s UCC, Immanuel UCC and Christ the King UCC) to consider sending a small group from their faith family for lunch at each of the locations where we will dine. This is a season of getting together!

It’s not too late to sign-up and plan to carpool or caravan from church, departing a little bit after noon. See sign-up sheets in the Gathering Space on Sunday morning or just show up!

Join the Parkway UCC CROP Hunger Walk Team

Sun, Oct 12 | 12:30pm Registration | 1:30pm Walk | Eden Seminary

Be a part of the phenomena! Fight hunger! Last year we had a large team of walkers and raised over $1500 as a team. That means that we raised enough money to provide 4,000lbs of food for our local food pantries AND enough money to provide food packets for 10 displaced families to feed them for 5 months. Great job Parkway UCC! Let’s keep up the great work in the fight against hunger both here in our community and around the world.


You can walk and/or support our walkers by:

  1. Look for me, Stephanie DeLong, at church on Sunday morning. I can give you a walker envelope or sign you up as a sponsor.
  2. Email Stephanie DeLong at greenwagonmom@gmail.com.
  3. Telephone Stephanie DeLong at 636-236-7907.
  4. Go to this link to join the Parkway UCC CROP Walk Team and/or sponsor a walker: http://hunger.cwsglobal.org/site/TR/2014FallCROPHungerWalk/TR-Fall2014?team_id=112480&pg=team&fr_id=19114
