Young and Nursing Moms

We are here for you during this busy season of life.  On Sunday mornings we have a changing table and private nursing area inside our nursery which you are welcome to use at any time.  There is also a sofa and live tv viewing of the service in the conference room during services should you choose to not use the nursery.

Join other Parkway moms on our Facebook group to connect for coffee, playdates and support here.  All are welcome!  

Little ones Playgroup

Do you have little ones that would like to come socialize and play with other little ones at church?  A great time to visit with other moms too in a very low key, show up in your sweatpants and enjoy good conversation and a snack.  

We meet Tuesdays from 1-2:30pm in the church nursery, hope you can join us!
