Welcome to the online home of Parkwood Church.
We are glad you found us! Check out some of the great things coming up at Parkwood:
Fill Up a Pick Up
Thank you to everyone who helped with our Food Drive Challenge of filling up a pick up truck to help feed the homeless in our area! The collected food was taken to the Bread of Life Food Pantry.
2nd Annual Comunity Craft Fair!
We would like to send out a special Thank You to all those Vendors, Volunteers, and Shoppers that made this year's craf fair a success! We had over 70 vendors, including some of our own congregation members fill the Church for this wonderful event!
Blessing of Backpacks!!
On Sunday, September 7th during worship we had a blessing of the backpacks. We invited children to bring their backpack to church and then had the entire congregation come forward to pray over them as they begin a new school year. It was a beautiful example of the church laying on hands and encouraging each other in the faith!
Presbyterian Project Mission Trip
The Presbyterian Project has scheduled the 2014 Winter Mission Trip. We will be heading to DuBois, PA to continue work on flood relief February 16-22, 2014. There will be 3 options...attending the 1st half of the week, the 2nd half of the week or the entire week. We are also collecting Lowe's Gift Cards to help defer the cost of supplies for the trip. If you are interested, please contact the church at 412-486-9220.
Produce to People
The Session and members of Parkwood traveled to the North Side of Pittsburgh and helped serve 400 individuals (1,000 when you consider their families) food which consisted of frozen chicken, canned fruit, baked beans, potatoes, cabbage and apples. Produce to People helps provide 20,000 pounds of produce each month to those in need. We will be serving again in May and invite you to join us!
Parkwood Church participated in many activities serving those in our local community in 2013 and looks to strengthen our relationships with these agencies in 2014! Information on each Mission can be found HERE.

Prayer Cards in the pews are YELLOW for this time period. Please use these to place your concerns on the Prayer Walls located in the Narthex. These prayer concerns are prayed for during the week at Praying at Parkwood as well as by Rev. Jeff and Pastor Barb. You are encouraged to take an existing prayer concern and pray for that concern during the week as well.
