Save 5% or More on Preschool Tuition

Our own First Step Nursery School offers a number of discounts to families who enroll their children for the 2015-16 school year.

Families can save 5% if they prepay the full year in advance, have served in the military, and/or register for afternoon classes. Members of Parkway Community Church receive an additional 10% off tuition.

First Step Nursery has served families in Central Nassau for more than 30 years. It offers morning and afternoon classes for preschool students ages 2 to 5. Classes are small, affordable, and designed to provide the “first step” children need for a successful education.

Do you know anyone with a child in half-day kindergarten? First Step Nursery’s Enrichment Program for kindergarten students reinforces pre-reading and socialization skills, and helps prepare students for longer school days.

Join Us for Holy Week and Easter Sunday

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week as we celebrate Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.

Our 10 a.m. worship service on March 29 will begin outside, where the children of our Sunday Church School will process into the sanctuary of our Hicksville church.

We continue our observance of Holy Week with services at 7:30 p.m. on Holy Thursday, April 2, and Good Friday, April 3.

Holy Thursday marks Jesus’ Last Supper with His disciples, and our service will include communion. On Good Friday, we will reflect on the crucifixion of Our Lord during a candlelight service.

Just as Good Friday ends in darkness, Easter begins in the light of Jesus’ resurrection and message of eternal life for all who believe in Him. Join us at 6:30 a.m. for a sunrise service in our parking lot (followed by a light breakfast inside) or at 10 a.m. on Easter Sunday, April 5, as we celebrate this most joyous of Christian holidays. Our doors are open to you.

Perform Random Acts of Kindess During Lent

The theme for Lent at Parkway Community Church is the “Sermon on the Mount,” a collection of the important teachings of Jesus, found in the Gospel of Matthew, chapters 5-7.

In His sermon, Jesus lays out a life for us of learning and action. He challenges us to consider whom we emulate, how we treat other people, where we look for God.

One of Jesus’s key teachings is, “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Commonly called the Golden Rule, it guides us to perform kind deeds for others.

During Lent, we are inviting the members of our Hicksville church to live the Golden Rule by performing kind deeds for others without expecting any recognition or reward. We are asking our members to keep track of their “random acts of kindness” and share them anonymously during Sunday worship. Won’t you join us?
