In-Person Worship Has Resumed!

I was glad when they said unto me, "Let us go into the house of the Lord."  


We are excited to be back in our building for in-person worship! Our worship service times have changed temporarily due to our continued season dealing with COVID-19. Traditional worship is held at 9 a.m. in the Sanctuary, and our Founders Hall service is at 10:30 a.m. You no longer need to RSVP before attending a Sunday morning service! 


Children's Time is held at 10 a.m. in the Youth Chapel. Space is limited for this in-person worship experience, so parents should RSVP if they plan to attend Children's Time.

  

For safety reasons, we will NOT have Sunday School or nursery at this time. We will do all we can to make worship welcoming and engaging for all ages!


If you choose not to attend yet for any reason, please know that we will continue to offer online worship via our Facebook page at 10:30 a.m.


We are also offering a parking lot communion service every Sunday evening at 4 p.m. This is a perfect worship opportunity if you have health issues that would keep you from attending worship inside our building.


Much thought has been given on this temporary schedule. It won't be perfect for everyone; however, we think this gives us the best chance to worship safely for the good of the entire congregation. We appreciate your patience as we move forward. 


Peace,

Bruce


Welcome!

Welcome to Parkway Heights United Methodist Church in Hattiesburg, Mississippi!


Everything we do at Parkway Heights centers around three ideas that define who we are. Our mission:


1. to INVITE people to worship God and CONNECT them with one another and with Christ;

2. to EQUIP and prepare people for life;

3. to SEND people into a life of mission and ministry God has prepared for them.

Our Story

Parkway Heights United Methodist Church was formed in 1949 as a church locating away from the city’s hub to its far western edge. Some 60 plus years later the city’s “edge” has moved considerably farther west, though the area surrounding the church and the church itself continues to thrive. (We are one block from the University of Southern Mississippi.)

Early on, Parkway Heights was involved in local, national and international missions. In the 1970's, the congregation adopted a Vietnamese family immigrating to the United States, started a mentoring program for school children in the Edwards Street area of Hattiesburg and began a tradition of supporting missions around the world. Throughout the years we have grown into a congregation with a unique calling for mission and outreach.

Today

Today you'll find the people of Parkway Heights engaging others in many ways - through our Woodley Elementary School Partnership, delivering Meals on Wheels to our neighbors or going on mission trips. There's no shortage of opportunities to share God's love through helping others in large or small ways.

From our young children to our senior adults, all ages are involved in our mission to "invite, connect, equip and send faithful disciples of Jesus Christ." As a congregation, we continue to grow and evolve, while offering a place where people can discover and live their new lives in Christ. Come and see what we're about first-hand. We'll be truly glad to have you!
