Parkway UCC E-News: A Bigger Table Weekend 6-1-2018

This Upcoming Week at Parkway
Worship with us this Sunday.
Our Annual Meeting to elect Council and Commission members and launch our Vitality Teams will take place on Sunday in the sanctuary at 9:30am.
As you enter the front doors, Barb Kuhlmann (Director of Christian Education and Youth Ministry) will gather the children and take them on an adventure/hunt … bringing them back by the end of the meeting.
One Family Worship begins immediately following the Congregational Meeting at 10am. John Pavlovitz will be a worship leader. Our scriptures are 1Samuel 3:1-10 (God calls Samuel over and over again); Psalm 139 (God knows us and loves us no matter where we are); and Mark 3:1-6 (Jesus heals on the Sabbath) with a sermon entitled In Our Hands. We want and need you here as we celebrate the sacrament of communion at our open table, give thanks to our choir and song leaders for a year of wonderful music and imagine together how we can live further into our fresh purpose statement – to be an inclusive community embracing: spiritual nourishment, open-minded inquiry, courageous action, and interfaith partnerships to fulfill God’s calling to create a just world for all.
Stay for lunch! Our Church Council is provided an opportunity to gather around tables for a meal and further conversation with John Pavlovitz as he concludes his weekend with us.
