In Our Community

Serving Christ in Our Community

In 2013, the Leadership and Congregation of Parkwood Church decided to make Mission work a focus for the year.  We joined together with other local churches to participate in Mission Trips to help those in need.  Along with far-reaching mission work, we have also begun to focus on serving Christ right here in our own community:


Light of Life Rescue Mission

November 24 - After Church one Sunday, the congregation stayed to prepare a "Thanksgiving Style" meal to men, women, and children served by the Light of Life Rescue Mission.  Some members were even asked to help serve the meal that was prepared

 

Hosted a Field Day at Mars Home for Youth

On Saturday, August 10 sixteen volunteers from Parkwood Church hosted a field day with the youth from MHY.  The kids (ages 9-18) took part in games that included water balloon toss, bowling, bean bag toss, frisbee golf and lots of fun and fellowship.  We were blessed by our time together and look forward to our upcoming game night.  If you are interested in voluteering in our ministry with Mars Home for Youth, contact the office!

 

 

Serve Dinner to the Men's Shelter

Every other month, we serve dinner to the Men's Shelter in East Liberty.  Every night, the shelter provides a warm place to sleep and a hot meal for as many as 35 men that are homeless.  If you are interested in joining us in this mission opportunity, contact the church office or email Rev. Jeff! 

 

 

Under the Bridge Ministry

Parkwood and friends shared in our "Under the Bridge Ministry" to people who are homeless.  We delivered over a hundred care packages of food and toiletry items to those in need.  If you are interested in partnering with us in this ministry please contact the church office!
