    • traditional hymns along with modern worship songs & choruses.
    • a children's talk followed by a time apart for ages 2 1/2 through high school (see below)
    • a message rooted in scripture that will help you understand how God would have us live.
    • an opportunity to give thanks, share needs and have those needs prayed for
    • an opportunity over refreshments after the service to chat with friends old and new.

Our music

    The Parkwood choir meets regularly for rehearsals under the leadership of Dianne Smith at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday evenings, usually ending around 8:30. The selection of music is varied, encompassing both traditional and more contemporary styles. Soloists, small groups and instrumentalists often provide special music for our worship services and other events. If you have some musical gifts you'd like to share, or even if you're not sure of your gift and would like to try us out, please join us any Thursday evening, to "make a joyful noise unto the Lord".

Church School etc.

    A nursery is provided for children under 2½ years of age. An audio feed from the sanctuary enables the nursery volunteers to listen to the service.

    Church School is provided during our morning worship for ages 2½ up, including high school. The morning starts with everyone worshipping in the sanctuary, and after a story and song, the children go to their classes.

    The young adults fellowship takes place periodically after the morning worship, over lunch. Check the bulletin and/or calendar for dates.
