MINISTRY AND MISSION HIGHLIGHTS
Gathering to celebrate the life and legacy of Harry Jeska
On March 27, we gathered to mark the one-year anniversary of Harry’s death and entrance into eternal life. In worship we dedicated one of the two new wooden pedestals in memory of him. The other pedestal is in memory of Walter Harr and joins the other four wooden pedestals in memory of Kay Harr’s other relatives. All of these six wooden pedestals were purchased through the Memorial Fund. Following worship we shared a wonderful meal and time of friendship and story-telling about Harry.
We continue to keep in our prayers Harry’s daughters Beth Lemieux and Georgina O’Connell (back row), Harry’s “favorite mother-in-law” Dorothy Colburn (front left), and his beloved wife Judy Jeska (front right).
WORSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP
The people of Parkview invite you to join us for Sunday worship, special events, ongoing ministries and our missional work.
Join us each Sunday at 10:00am as we gather as the people of God, hear the Word of God proclaimed, respond to God's love, and prepare to go forth in the coming week in God's mission and grace.
THE SPARK STORY BIBLE
The people of Parkview take turns reading a story from the Spark Story Bible published by Augsburg Fortress. Although it is a children's Bible, we believe each reading is a means of grace for everyone!
