Our Core Values

On Monday night, September 11, 2006, the Church Council unanimously adopted the following statement as the Core Values for Parkway Hills United Methodist Church. These core values will guide us in planning and evaluating our ministries for years to come:

WELCOME
As people of the United Methodist Church, we will welcome each other and the strangers in our midst with open hearts, open minds, and open doors. We are a community which values everyone and extends the love of Christ to all. 

GROW
Spiritual development is a lifelong journey—from cradle to grave. We will live to be more like Jesus and never stop growing into a deeper relationship with God.

SERVE
With the hearts of servants, we will nurture and care for those within and beyond our walls. We are the hands and voice of Christ.

CELEBRATE
God's grace and love are in us and all around us. They are the source of all our gifts. We will praise God in our worship, with all of our gifts, and through our stewardship of the beauty and the bounty of the Earth.

 

Mark McLain put the words of our Core Values to music.  We sing the chorus at the close of each service as a reminder of our purpose.
