The Parkway Studentz Ministry desires to come along side the churchʼs purpose and vision to create a community in which students in grades 6-12 learn to... LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS, & LIVE THE MISSION.
We accomplish this a variety of ways. We have various ministry opportunities for students to be a part of throughout the year. Through these opportunities we strive to REACH students with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, help them GROW in their faith, train them to CONNECT with God and with others on a deeper level, and SEND them out to change their world with the life-changing good news of Jesus.
This is our Sunday morning Bible study groups for studentz 6th-12th grade. Studentz will be in a small group where they learn the truths of Scripture and how they can apply that truth to their lives! These groups are led by adults, who are Parkway members.
We have 2 options for studentz to be involved in a Life Group:
9:00 Life Groups
These groups meet at Grange Hall Elementary School. The groups start out in the cafeteria for a combined opening time of fellowship and announcements. From there, studentz break up into groups based on the grade they are in. We have a group for each grade.
10:30 Life Groups
These groups meet on Parkway's campus in Church Cottage C. These groups start out together for a combined opening time of fellowship and announcements. After this, studentz are split into a middle school group and a high school group.
This is our Sunday night program for studentz which is a unifying time of fellowship and challenge. Studentz are encouraged to come and bring their friends to meet new folks and fellowship together! TWO:four includes games, fellowship, worship, devotion, and more! It takes place on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month during the school year from 5:00pm-6:45pm at Parkway (unless otherwise stated).
CONNECT - On break for the summer
This is where studentz will have an opportunity to CONNECT with God on a deeper level while CONNECTing with each other. Studentz will be challenged to dig deeper into God's Word and grow their faith through Worship, Bible study, and accountability through c_groups. Studentz are placed in a c_group based on their gender and grade.
These groups meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00pm at Parkway. Wednesday night c_groups will pick back up in September.
*There are a few c_group options that meet on other nights of the week. For more info about any of these, contact our office.*
SLT - Student Leadership Team
JOIN SLT! SLT is a group of high school student leaders who want to do more than just show up and sit. These are studentz who want to serve the Lord through the Parkway Studentz Ministry. They have applied to be a part of the team and participate in monthly trainings, semester reading assignments, and leadership roles at different Studentz Ministry events and programs.
SLT has an open enrollment process. If you are a 9th-12th grader and would like to be a part of the SLT, please pick up an application from Pastor Mike. SLT meets weekly on Thursdays throughout the summer for training, serving opportunities, and planning as well as periodically throughout the school year.

We now have a text messaging system so that we can notify you quickly and instantly of any updates that we have (i.e. special announcements, reminders, cancellations due to weather, etc.) Your number/info will not be shared - not even with each other. We simply write the message and the program sends it on to all who participate. To join the Parkway Studentz Text List...
