Join Us for Worship This Advent Season

Advent is here! We await with great anticipation the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We invite you to prepare for Christmas by worshiping with us during Advent at 10 a.m. Sundays (Dec. 2, 9, 16 and 23). 

We’re celebrating the Advent season with a Souper Lunch 12 noon on Sunday, Dec. 9. Everyone is invited. Bring soup or dessert to share. 

On Friday, Dec. 14, join us at 6:15 p.m. as we go caroling at Cold Springs Hills Center For Nursing & Rehabilitation in Woodbury. Carpooling is available. 

On Saturday, Dec. 15, we're going to decorate the church for Christmas at 9:30 a.m.. We need many volunteers to hang garland, set up poinsettias and wreaths, and dress the Christmas trees. Bagels and coffee will be served. 

On Sunday, Dec. 16, we’re having our annual Cookie Swap after worship. Bring in three dozen Christmas cookies and go home with 36 different ones, courtesy of our church bakers. 

On Friday, Dec. 21, we will have a Blue Christmas service of comfort and remembrance for those who are sad or lonely during the holiday season. 

Finally, on Dec. 24, we will celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, with two candlelight services on Christmas Eve. The 5 p.m. service is designed for families and will feature special music. We will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion at the 11 p.m. service. There is no service on Christmas Day. 

Everyone is welcome to all these events. We hope you will join us.

Thanks for Supporting Our Pumpkin Patch

October may be over, but the impact of our 2018 Pumpkin Patch is still here.

In the coming weeks, we will be making donations to local charities from the proceeds of our Hicksville Pumpkin Patch. We want to thank all of the volunteers, including many local students looking for community service hours, who helped us throughout the month. 

The pumpkins came all the way from New Mexico, and will not only benefit the Native Americans who grew them, but also not-for-profit organizations here on Long Island and hurricane victims down South when we make donations from our Pumpkin Patch sales.

If you bought your pumpkins at Parkway Church this year, thank you for your support!
