At Parkway Presbyterian, people are encouraged to come as they are to worship without any pressure to dress or act in a certain way. Some will feel comfortable dressing up, and others will feel comfortable dressing casually. Beyond dress, no one will be put on the spot or feel pressured to participate if they are not comfortable doing so.

Each service begins with a call to worship in which Scripture is read and God is acknowledged as the one who calls His people together and empowers their growth. Songs are then sung, prayers are offered, sin is confessed, a sermon is preached, and the Lord’s Supper is regularly administered. All elements of worship are rich in Scripture and are Christ-centered. There is a coffee fellowship time immediately following the service and all are invited to attend. 

In terms of children, our regular childcare is currently suspended as we adjust to resuming in-person worship. However, typically childcare is provided for infants and toddlers throughout the service, and children in preschool to first grade are dismissed during the sermon to hear a message specifically tailored to them. We plan to resume our typical childcare in September. Regardless, parents are always welcome to keep their children with them during the service if they would prefer to do so. (Note: During the summer, there will be a space where parents can go with young children during the service if they need a break from the chapel space for any reason.)
