Assembly Required at The Pulitzer Arts Foundation
This art show invites your active participation. You may build, shape, and use these artworks, collaboratively or on your own. The artists were selected based on a shared belief that public action is vital for transforming society.
Created between the 1950s and the present, the artworks respond to distinct social and political moments, from unrest in the United States during the Vietnam War to Peru’s military dictatorship. The artists offer unique perspectives on social change, addressing the need for optimism and hope in the face of global tensions.
Throughout this immersive exhibition, members of the public interact with the artworks and each other while sharing new experiences. Ultimately, Assembly Required poses questions about how art allows us to imagine new ways of being in the world.

Join us in the sanctuary or virtually. It’s the Fourth Sunday of Lent - on our way to Holy Week and Easter. We will share a few gospel lessons where Jesus tells stories to help get his points across and so that the stories might be passed along!

Our Lenten theme is Jesus Does. How about you? as we look at Jesus’ life and how we can model our lives after his. We will light our Lenten Candles.

Listen to this 5 minute podcast from our UCC General Minister and President, John Dorahuer:

What did the tree say during springtime?
“Well, this is a re-leaf!”
There is a significant moral difference between a person who commits a violent crime and a person who tries to cross a border illegally in order to put food on the family table. Such migrants may violate our laws against illicit entry, but if that’s all they do they are trespassers, not criminals. They deserve to have their dignity respected.

Amazing Response To Video System Appeal
On March 9, an email to the congregation explained the status of our video project. This project has equipped the sanctuary with professional video equipment, thereby permitting our services to be transmitted into homes and allowing videos to be used in the sanctuary. Our notice explained that the project was more than half paid, but that approximately $10,000 remained unpaid on this unbudgeted expense. We invited those who wished to contribute to the project.
You responded—and how!
Several contributions were sent in immediately.
·   A member offered an anonymous contribution of $2,500 if the congregation could raise the additional $7,500. We announced that “match” offer at the conclusion of worship on Sunday, March 20.
·   And when that Sunday’s offering was counted, it was found to contain multiple contributions to the video project—submitted even before the “match” offer was announced.
We are now very close to meeting the conditions for the match, and within a few thousand dollars of covering all current installation costs for the video system. Council offers its sincere thanks to the congregation for this amazing and speedy outpouring of generosity.
We continue to accept contributions to close out this project. Since some church reserves were used in the initial payment for the project, any contributions in excess of the currently expected $10,000 to $11,000 final payments will be applied to these prior payments, thus allowing the church reserves to be refreshed.
Thank you for this wonderful outpouring of support. It allows Parkway to pay for this important but non-budgeted project without cutting into current programs. And it shows the congregation’s enthusiasm for this major improvement to the church’s facilities, born of the pandemic, but likely to help the church, its members, and its mission in many ways in the future.
We appreciate your submissions of jokes, quotes, photos, videos, weekly opportunities, Mid~Week Meditation ideas, scriptures that are important to you, hymn/song suggestions, poetry, etc. We would love to hear from you: [email protected]
