At Parkway, we want to be a family that is able to rely on each other no matter what. We want to show you that you are an irreplaceable member of the Body of Christ!

      This coming January, Parkway UMC will be offering a confirmation class that is open to all students who are currently in 8th grade or older. This class will use an adapted version of the Credo confirmation curriculum, and will span about 8-12 weeks. Because of the uncertainty of the coming few months, we cannot provide many logistical details, but the class will likely take place Sunday evenings either in-person or through Zoom if required. Each student in the class will have an adult mentor who will walk beside them during this journey. The bottom line is: if you are a student in the 8th grade or older who is ready to take the next step towards deepening your faith and preparing yourself for a lifetime of Christian discipleship, this class is for you! Please click here to sign up!

      The Student Leadership Team at Parkway exists because students have voices that deserve to be heard. That said, being part of the Parkway Student Leadership Team is a big responsibility. The SLT is an important voice in making many important decisions for the youth group, including but not limited to: Wednesday evening activities and lesson topics, Bible study curriculum and topics, and retreat themes and locations. As part of the SLT, you will play a large role in the spiritual development of your peers. Please only apply if you have serious interest in making these difficult but important decisions. 

      Sunday Evenings

      Very soon, we will start meeting on Sunday evenings to take part in age-specific Bible study and games to help every student grow closer to God and closer to each other.

      In order to be an active volunteer, all adults and young adults must complete Safe Sanctuary annually. This includes a training and a screening process.
