1st and 3rd Sundays: In-Person Worship
2nd and 4th Sunday: Zoom Worship
5th Sunday: Home Liturgy
In these times of COVID-19, FCPS is no longer opening their schools, which means we cannot meet in our usual Sangster Elementary School. Parkway has to be flexible about where we meet. Currently, we will be worshiping in-person the 1st and 3rd week of the month in homes. Please see our monthly schedule of services below. Our Events page will give you more information on addresses and virtual credentials.
In-Person Worship, 1st and 3rd Sunday: Please join us live the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month as we meet in different homes. Bring your own chair and your favorite morning beverage. We will meet at our normal time, 10:00-11:30 AM. Contact email@example.com for more information.
Facebook Live, 1st and 3rd Sunday: For those of you who are not yet comfortable meeting or are considered “high risk,” you can join us via Facebook Live. If you will be joining the service via Facebook Live, we also invite you to gather virtually via Zoom before and after the service beginning at 9:45am. We will be using projection during our worship so you will need to print out the Order of Service for the various readings and song lyrics. (Sign up for this email at firstname.lastname@example.org.) We will go live close to 10:00 AM with a welcome from Pastor Tim. For every recorded sermon, there will be a corresponding link to SoundCloud on our website.
Face Masks: As long as the CDC and the governor can make a good case for using face masks, and out of love for our brothers and sisters still concerned about COVID-19, we will wear them when we meet inside, including children ages 10 and above based upon Virginia guidance. The only exception will be the speaker and musicians who will be behind plexiglass.
Children’s Church: Since we don’t have classrooms for the children, we will have a short children’s message before the sermon.
Social Distance Planning and Surface Areas: We will place groups of chairs spaced six feet apart for families and couples. The CDC has downplayed the risk of the virus being transmitted on surfaces, but we suggest you bring your own wipes if that remains a concern for you. When the service concludes, you are welcome to leave or to linger.
Zoom Worship, 2nd and 4th Sundays: As long as FCPS schools remain closed, our current plan is to hold Zoom church on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. (See Zoom credentials in Events.)
Home Liturgy, 5th Sunday: Pastor Tim encourages families to worship together at home. He creates a Home Liturgy and sends it out via email the Friday before Sunday. For those people unable to worship with a community, Zoom is always available (see Zoom credentials in Events). If you would like to receive the Home Liturgy, please email email@example.com.
Looking forward to seeing you on a Sunday whether live or in-person. Until then, let us worship with rejoicing, thanksgiving, and prayer while looking for the coming of our Lord Jesus!
