A Message From pastor russell - april 22

Greetings Parkway Family and Friends,


We continue to be under a stay at home order until April 30th. We are anticipating that Governor Abbott, as well as our County Judge and city officials, will make statements later this month as to a timeline for re-opening up our communities and what continued restrictions or social distancing practices that may entail. We understand that some of those restrictions (like non-essential retail being able to do pick up or drive thru sales and state parks re-opening) are already occurring, but as of yet, we don’t have a definitive re-open date. We are staying in contact with local officials and will continue to give updates here and through our other social media outlets. 

Please note that we are continuing to support the county in all of its endeavors to help flatten the curve related to the spread of the coronavirus. Your Parkway staff continues to work remotely with the occasional trip up to the church campus for only essential needs such as checking the mail, paying the bills, payroll, and the like. Percy, our maintenance technician, is on site making some needed repairs to the facilities while others are away (it is hard to fix things like ballasts in bathrooms when they are constantly in use!)


While we are continuing our journey on this latest leg of social distancing, our goal is to continue to stay connected to you and provide for as many of your needs as we can. To that end, we have many engagement opportunities online that include our Deep Blue Children's Ministry, Student Ministry, Daily Devotionals, Saturday Prayer at noon, online Worship Services and more! Keep an eye out on our Facebook page as we launch information about a weekly Bible study that Jodi will be doing beginning next week. Also, don’t forget to move through to the next section of the Social Distancing tab that has all the links you need to stay connected to us online during this time.


If you have questions or would like to get in touch with me directly, please don’t hesitate to email me at rhall@parkwayumc.org. 


I know that these times are challenging. And although we may be apart physically, we are a family that is deeply rooted and connected spiritually. Know that you are loved; that you are not alone; and that this is only a season and it will pass. I look forward to being with you all again real soon!


May God’s peace be with you always,


Pastor Russell
