New Pastors Join Parkway Church

Parkway Community Church, a member of the Reformed Church in America (RCA), is pleased to welcome new co-pastors, the Rev. Aric and the Rev. Ellen Balk. 

Pastor Aric and Pastor Ellen hail from Iowa, where they received bachelor’s degrees from Central College. They graduated with master of divinity degrees this past May from the RCA’s Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Mich.

"I believe Christian communities should be places where people feel welcomed, seen, and heard, where they know that they are appreciated and are given opportunities to participate," says Pastor Ellen. "Christian communities should be places of empowerment where people learn, grow and are encouraged to live into their own calling.” 

"I love listening to people’s stories," says Pastor Aric. "We all have testimonies of seeing God work in our lives and in the lives of those around us. People come from different backgrounds of work, education, and families, which give unique perspectives of mission in the community and around the world." 

Parkway Community Church invites everyone to join us Sundays at 10 a.m. to meet Pastor Aric and Pastor Ellen and to share in the fellowship of faith that is growing here. On Christmas Eve, they will lead traditional candlelight services at 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. "We are so excited to be joining you, and look forward to beginning this new journey together!"

Parkway Flea Market Helps Support The INN

Parkway Community Church of Hicksville has donated a portion of the proceeds from our 2019 Flea Market, Bake Sale and Plant Sale to The INN

Based in Hempstead, the not-for-profit Interfaith Nutrition Network assists those challenged by hunger, homelessness and poverty. The gift will be used to underwrite one daily meal for 300 people. 

Funds for the gift came from both the Flea Market and individual church members’ donations. In this photo, church members Gail Bucci (left) and Kristin Buksa (right) present our donation to Cynthia Sucich of The INN. 

We thank everyone who helped make our annual Flea Market a big success by donating and purchasing items. Thanks also to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island for picking up our leftover donations.
