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 administered weekly. All elements of worship are rich in Scripture and are Christ-centered.
In terms of children, childcare is provided for infants and toddlers throughout the service, and children ages 3-6 are dismissed during the sermon to hear a message specifically tailored to them. However, parents are welcome to keep their children with them during the service if they would prefer to do so.
