Thanks to Beth Vaz for sharing her ministry of music with our children.

Two Faiths Seek Common Ground

Members of Parkway Community Church in Hicksville were pleasantly surprised recently when several members of the Islamic Center of Long Island in Westbury arrived for the Sunday morning Christian worship service.

The Muslims came by invitation in ongoing efforts by the leaders of both congregations to build bridges of understanding between their different religions and ethnicities, especially at this time of increased tensions worldwide.

Our guests brought packages of food and blankets for the church’s ministries to needy people in its community. New friendships were formed, and future events will be planned.

Join Us on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 10

Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 10 and ends with Easter on March 27.

At Parkway Community Church in Hicksville, we begin the Lenten season with Ash Wednesday services at 11:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. We will hear the challenge that Jesus presents – his invitation to enter abundant life with God here and now.

Pastor Lay will lead both services, which include the availability of ashes for those who desire them. We invite you to worship with us.

Lent: Encountering God through Jesus

The Lenten theme at our Hicksville church will be “Jesus, the Life of God.”

We will use the book study by the Rev. Adam Hamilton, John: The Gospel of Light and Life. His book will shape our Sunday services as we read the entire Gospel of John during Lent. In this Gospel, Jesus embodies the Life that is truly Divine, the “heart, character, will, and creative mind of God.” We enter into this reality through our relationship with the Christ, Jesus.

We will explore this theme Sundays at 10 a.m. and Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. and at 7:30 p.m. Pastor Lay will lead our midweek devotional study using a DVD from Pastor Hamilton. There also will be time for reflection and prayer.

Our Lenten observance continues with a men’s communion Breakfast on Saturday, March 5, at 9:00 a.m. We will reflect upon God’s love for us in Jesus as we share the Lord’s Supper prior to enjoying a hearty breakfast. This is open to all men; bring a friend.

Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday, March 20, at our 10:00 a.m. service. We shall celebrate Communion on Holy Thursday at 7:30 p.m., and observe Good Friday at 7:30 p.m.

A joyous celebration with special music is planned for Easter Sunday, March 27.

We invite you to join us during Lent for any or all of these services and events.

Listen to Music from Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve worship was joyous at Parkway Community Church as several musicians joined with our adult choir to share their talents with us:

A medley of favorite Christmas hymns performed by Kate Amrine and Rodney Siau, trumpets; Jim Robinson, French horn; Michael Pallas, trombone; and Colin Murray, tuba.

“Joseph’s Song,” written by Michael Card and performed by Bob Koenig, guitar.

“In the First Light,” written by Bob Kauflin, and “O Holy Night,” both sung by soprano Tatiana Poletskaya, accompanied by Michael Zeiger, our organist and choir director.

In addition, several of our members sang "Mary, Did You Know?" by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene the Sunday after Christmas.

We hope you enjoy these selections and invite you to worship with us Sundays at 10 a.m.
