Worship

The Bible says, "...at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord."  Worship brings the community together for prayer, singing, reading the scriptures, hearing a sermon, and participating in the sacraments of Baptism and The Lord's Supper.

A unique feature of Parkway's worship is the round sanctuary.  People sit in pews and face one another.  The seating area is tiered so you look over the head of anyone sitting in front of you.  The design was such that no one sits more than eight rows from the communion table.  There is a designated seating area for those with limited mobility.

Worship at Parkway has an air of relaxed dignity.  A few people wear suits and dresses, most opt for "business casual", and some wear shorts and flip-flops.  Music is led by a twenty-voice choir and is accompanied by either an organ or piano.  A member of the church asists in leading prayers and reading scripture.  Our pastors wear robes as they lead worship except for the summer months when they go casual, too.  In the service we have a time for "Passing the Peace" where we get out of our seats to greet one another with the words, "The peace of Christ be with you."  Children are welcome in worship and most Sunday's the minister has a special message just for them (though the adults get to listen in).  Most weeks our worship service lasts just under an hour.
