Below you can find information about the ministries & groups at Parkway
The prayer Group meets on Friday mornings at 9am to pray for the specific needs of church members and their family and friends. Concerns of the community, nation and world are also addressed.
Quest is the small group ministry of Parkway Presbyterian Church in which ten to fifteen people, who are seeking an opportunity to grow in their faith and in their relationships with others, commit to meet together for study, prayer, encouragement and fellowship. Each group also commits to some form of service outside the group.
We now offer two types of groups: “Classic” Quest and “TLC” Quest Groups.
Groups meet once per month for a few hours. Fellowship is shared during a potluck dinner or brunch. Groups are formed every two years.
Group meets weekly for about an hour and a half and has a dessert or light snack. This group is open to adding new members throughout the year, and purposefully seeks new people to join.

Men’s Prayer Breakfast
The Men’s Group meets at 8am on the 2nd Saturday of each month in the church’s Fellowship Hall. The meal is prepared by some of the men and the menu changes each month. The food is always great and we enjoy informal discussion and fellowship during the meal. After breakfast, we engage in an ongoing Bible study and then share prayer concerns and close in prayer. All men are welcome. Please join us.
This group is open to all women and does not require any special membership. It offers Bible study and fellowship through meetings and a retreat. In addition they provide fellowship dinners and coffee hours. They also help with local and international missions.
Women’s Fellowship Circle
We meet the third Tuesday of each month, at 10am. Please join us for this enriching program.
This group meets at the church on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 9:30am to make quilts which are then given to some of the local mission agencies. This is a great example of Christian fellowship with a purpose. No prior sewing or quilting experience is needed. The work wraps us at noon and the sharing continues around the table with sack lunches.
Have you heard? This year our Women’s Retreat will be a ONE DAY RETREAT at Cascade Camp and Conference Center (near Yelm) on Saturday, September 14th From 9am-4pm.With this change we hope that more women will be able to attend. We will carpool from the church, leaving at 8:30am. The cost will be $20 each. There will be free time to go exploring or to just relax and visit, a delicious lunch, and lots of time for fellowship and sharing! Join us for a day of fun and blessings! Look for the sign-up sheet in the narthex during August.
PIPS is Parkway’s monthly potluck luncheon for our senior citizens. It meets at noon on the 2nd Thursday of each month. In addition to wonderful food and great fellowship, there is a devotional that ties into the theme of the season. No advanced reservations are needed. Just bring a favorite dish to be shared and a relaxed time with some friendly people.
Choir practice is on Thursday evenings from 7-8pm from September through June. No music training is necessary. If you like to sing and enjoy having a good time as you glorify the Lord, then this choir is for you.
The Parkway Presbyterian Food Bank services the community around us through referrals. Most of the referrals come through several local elementary schools with which we coordinate our efforts. Cash or food donations are greatly appreciated as the families in need benefit from our continued generosity. For food donations, please make sure that they are not past the pull date.
