Latest Updates Regarding COVID-19 Response - March 16, 2020

Dear Parkway Heights Family, 


We continue to adapt to the challenges of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. We will honor recommendations by the Center for Disease Control by not having live worship services or other programs at Parkway Heights for the next several weeks.


We will also protect our staff by encouraging them to work at home when possible. We will have a smaller crew in our office each business morning to answer phone calls. We will not open the office to the public for the next several weeks, but we will respond to calls and emails as quickly as we can. We thank you in advance for your patience!


We will continue to be the church by utilizing all of our technology. Emails, Facebook, Zoom meetings, and other mediums will be how we stay connected. We were pleased with the response to our Sunday morning Facebook children's time and the sermon! We look forward to expanding that offering to include some music and liturgy in the Sundays to come! We will be present in new ways throughout the week through our website, Facebook, and email. Also, our updated mobile app will be announced later this week! This will be a great communication tool! I encourage you to download the app and sign up for notifications on your cell phone, so you can stay informed. Get ready! After all, we don't go to church; we ARE the church!


If you don't already receive the weekly news emails from us, now is a great time to sign up for those! Just send us your email address at parkwayheights@parkwayheights.org, and we will add you to the email list.


Finally, we've had folks ask us how you can continue to give during this time. Please know that you can snail-mail us a check, give online, set up auto-draft from your banking account, or even give by texting PHUMC GIVE to 77977! Thank you so much for continuing to share your resources so that we can continue to be the church.


We continue to be a community of prayer, presence, gifts, service, and witness. Nothing can stop that. We will care for one another, love one another, and be a source of hope for this community and world.


God is with us. And nothing-- NOTHING-- can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. This, I know.


Peace

Bruce

Lenten Worship Series

Our Lenten worship series, Why Lent?, will begin Sunday, March 1. This series will explore the deepest questions of why Lent matters. Throughout the six Sundays of Lent, we will study stories deeply and ask the hardest questions of all: Why do these truths matter to us today? Why should we care? Why Lent?

We hope you’ll join us over the 40 days of Lent as we prepare for the most holy day

of the year— Easter — on Sunday, April 12.

Band Together

Connection is extremely important. Jesus changed the world by forming deep relationships with a few people who would then carry on His work beyond His earthly life. He even said that the very credibility of His life and message in the eyes of unbelievers would be dependent upon the way His followers relate to each other (see John 17).
