Worship with Us this Sunday

October 16, 2022 | 10:00am In-person and Facebook Live or replay on Facebook later


Our scriptures are Psalm 119:97-104 (God instructs us and guides us) and Luke 18:1-8 (Jesus talking about prayer). We will talk about prayer and try some prayer practices together.


St Louis County is now at CDC Medium risk meaning masking is recommended for those who have tested positive or are in high-risk populations. Therefore, we have adjusted our recommendations.

 

Please participate in worship virtually via our livestream on Facebook if you have tested positive for Covid in the last 5 days.

 

Masks should be worn and respected for in-person worship under the following conditions:

1) You have tested positive for COVID 6-10 days ago and you still have symptoms;

2) You are in a high-risk group and/or have underlying conditions;

3) You are more comfortable wearing a mask.


In order to protect individuals and the wider community, we strongly encourage up-to-date vaccinations and boosters against all communicable diseases.

From Polly Winkelmann:

Words are inadequate to express how very grateful I am for the faithful Parkway family that held us up in prayer and sent encouraging notes and cards throughout Jim’s many months of declining health. Kevin met the challenge of keeping up with whichever hospital or rehab facility Jim was in and visited him regularly. Thanks PUCC – you are the best!

What do farmers wear under their shirt when they’re cold?

A har-vest.


How do trees get on the Internet?

Paid leaf.

Ponder

Love is saying yes to belonging. That's my definition of love, pure and simple. Anything that we call love, as far as I can see, is in some way related to this yes. . . And that saying yes is not just an intellectual assent; it has profound moral implications. It means…acting the way people act when they belong together. ~David Steindl-Rast

Sprouts of Peace – our interfaith group for kids through 5th grade (and teen helpers) will be meeting again on Saturday, October 22nd from 2-4pm at Peace United Church Of Christ (204 E. Lockwood, Webster Groves 63119).

We would love to have each family bring two pair of large tube socks with them to this event. The socks will be used in one of our outreach projects.


The theme for this event will be Hearts and Hands. Sprouts will be using their hearts and hands to help make the world a better place. During our event sprouts and family members will have the opportunity to tour our worship space and to ask any question they may have. We will be reading Just Help! How to Build a Better World by Sonia Sotomayor. Then we will work together to put together/create:


1. Sock of Love - Hygiene kits in socks for people without homes.

2. Baskets of Fun - Basket with needed items for children at Children's Hospital.

3. Canvas Bags- Decorating canvas bags with fabric markers that will be used in a Little Pantry for folks to carry their food home.

4. Greeting Cards - Decorating/coloring greeting cards that will be delivered to folks at a local nursing home.

We will end our time together with the sprouts of peace song and snack.

We look forward to having you join us on October 22nd! Feel free to bring another family with you! The more the merrier as we help build a more compassionate and inclusive world alongside our Muslim and Jewish siblings.
