Sanctuary

A sanctuary is a space set aside for a holy purpose.  Parkway’s sanctuary is unique being hexagonal, essentially “worship in the round.” 

The entry into the sanctuary is intentionally narrow, remembering Jesus’ saying,

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is easy that leads to destruction, and there are many who take it. For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”  (Matthew 7:13-14)

The entry leads to a standing cross. Just beyond the cross is the baptismal font, the communion table, and the pulpit. These symbols of the faith are aligned in architecture as they should be in faith.

The seating arrangement is stadium-like; there are pews, but tiered seating allows everyone a clear view of the room.  Parkway also has kneeling benches at each pew, an unusual feature in a Presbyterian Church. Those who wish to are encouraged to kneel for the prayers during worship.

Six copper reliefs surround the sanctuary as an artistic expressions of great events of the Bible.

Music plays a leading role in worship. In the sanctuary we have a pipe organ, piano, harpsichord, and hand bells.
