Below are some of the ways Parkway Heights equips our members to be disciples of Christ. We encourage everyone to get involved. There's a place for everyone!
Most adult Sunday School classes meet on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:40 a.m. year-round. Currently there are 15 adult Sunday School classes, which cater to different life stages and interests. Find a class that's just right for you!
Parkway Heights has various groups that are open for fellowship and study. Most small groups meet on Wednesday evenings in the spring or fall for studies generally based on contemporary Christian literature. Other small groups include men's and women's small groups, the prayer shawl ministry team and our divorce/grief recovery group.
We encourage everyone to find a small group and "band together." Learn more about BANDing together
Parkway Heights’ Women’s Ministry seeks to connect women of all ages and stations in life. We believe that as we connect with one another, we will find the encouragement we need to grow in our faith and deepen our relationship with Christ. We have various opportunities for women to connect, both long-term small groups and short-term studies. We also have several special events during the year for women only. The next Women's Ministry event is our Spring Retreat in April 2018.
Parkway Heights has an abundance of activities for our senior adult members. In addition to field trips and special events like our Senior Adult Vacation Bible School, ongoing activities are held as well.
Wesley Club meets for lunch and a program on the third Thursday of each month from 11:45 a.m. until 1 p.m. in Founders Hall.

The mission of the United Methodist Men is to help men grow in Christ, so others may know Christ. The men meet at various times for social gatherings and perform monthly service projects. Our Men's Ministry is also part of Illuman. They meet on the fourth Sunday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room for Fourth Sunday Council, which is a communal, contemplative practice for small groups. They also meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month for "Burger & Fellowship." Learn more about Illuman of Mississippi on Facebook.
The United Methodist Women is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church. UMW has two circles (small groups) within the overall organization. The Bevill/Vickery Circle meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room. The Outreach Circle meets on the first Thursday of each month at 2 p.m. in the Fireside Room. All women are welcome and invited to get involved!
