Service Times and Location
9:30am: Traditional Service
The ancient practices of singing hymns, beautiful choral anthems, majestic pipe organ, reciting liturgy and wearing of liturgical robes can be found in this service. Experience a profound sense of God’s presence and a powerful connection with people of faith in a service that – while traditional – is never outdated and is always relevant.
11:00am: Informal Service
At this service, you will find casual dress and most songs not from our hymnal. Our clergy and musicians kick the habit and are not robed. You may experience some elements of worship that could be considered experimental. Song leaders help this service continue to offer some traditional elements as well. Be invigorated and transformed as you celebrate the God who is still speaking.
Our 11:00am Informal Worship Service is a place and space where you are invited to come as you are. It is a laid back environment to explore your faith and build community. The organ and robed choir of the Traditional Service are not a part of the second service. The piano is our main instrument but guitars and drums are most often a part of the mix as well. Our song leaders are up front to guide and teach us.
We are experimenting and are eager to partner with a new Informal Worship Music Director who is gifted in using a broad range of musical styles as an expression of faith.
We are praying for a partner who is flexible and creative as we deepen our worship experience—including the use of multi-media resources. We dream of incorporating and growing the musical talents of church members of all ages. We are committed to building community among the musicians as we offer encouragement, flexibility, and joy!
5th Sunday: 10:00am One Family Service
Most Sunday mornings we meet ourselves coming and going – literally. Our 9:30am Traditional and 11:00am Informal Worship services are both in the sanctuary and are only thirty minutes apart. That half hour can be pretty tight, especially with so much going on in the Gathering Space – signing a card for the Collegian of the Week, purchasing Fair Trade Coffee, securing tickets to Trivia Night, picking up kids from Sunday School and/or Musical Sunday, signing up for the CROP Walk and much more. We need an opportunity to gather as the entire Parkway UCC faith community for worship and fellowship. Thus ONE FAMILY WORSHIP was born. On the fifth Sunday of each month, we worship all together at 10:00am – followed by a meal in the Fellowship Hall. It’s a wonderful way to be one PUCC family, gathered and rooted in worship.
