What To Expect
The Parkway Worship Experience
At Parkway Baptist Church, you will encounter a warm, friendly community of faith, engaging worship, relevant, life changing messages, and a safe, encouraging environment for your children. Parkway has a couple of options to choose from depending upon your schedule and personality. At 8:30 AM we have a traditional worship service in which we focus on God through the familiar hymns of the faith. Our second worship service of the morning begins at 11:00 AM and is quite a bit more upbeat. We still sing the great hymns of the faith, but also incorporate newer hymns and choruses along with contemporary instrumentation. Between our worship services, Parkway has a church wide Sunday School hour where our church splits up into smaller groups for fellowship around the Word of God. We have classes for everyone, birth through senior adult. It is in these classes where authentic fellowship begins to take place as lifelong friendships are made and dialogue about God’s Word is made possible.
What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable during our worship gathering. At Parkway Baptist Church, we do not have a dress code, we want you to come as you are and experience the life changing grace of Jesus Christ as you worship with us. Most of those in attendance dress in business casual attire. You can dress as you like, however. We would rather you focus on God than on your clothes.
Where do I go?
See Map. As you arrive, follow the signs pointing to the worship center. On your way, you will be welcomed warmly by the Parkway community and directed to either our welcome center or our Children’s Ministry Center. At the Welcome Center , you will be greeted by a friendly face who can provide you with information about Parkway Baptist Church, our children's ministry, and our small group Bible studies. Our Welcome Center volunteers are also trained to answer any other questions that you may have. Still nervous about where to go once you arrive?
What should I do?
After visiting the Welcome Center and dropping off your little ones, you will be directed to the auditorium for the worship service. On the way, feel free to stop by Parkway’s Library and Media Center. The library and media center is full of resources to assist the Christian in their walk with Christ. As you enter the auditorium, you will receive a worship guide that will give you information about the various activities and ministries at Parkway Baptist Church and other important information.
We will do everything we can to ensure that you feel welcome and comfortable while you are our guest. We will not put you on the spot, ask you to pray or speak publicly, nor embarrass you in any way. Our desire is for you to have a life-changing encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. Come and be a part of the Parkway experience!
What do you have for children?
Parkway Baptist Church cares about families and loves children. We are committed to providing a safe, secure, and biblically focused environment in which children of all ages can begin their journey of developing a Christlike character. Our children's ministry always has at least one person on hand trained in first aid. Safety is of the utmost importance. We are also very careful to monitor security. If you drop your children off with our children's ministry, you can join our worship service knowing that your children will only be released back into your custody.
