TAKING IT TO THE STREETS

Sunday, October 28

It is that time of year where Parkway becomes a mission team for the community.

Instead of having our regular church services on October 28

we will be “Taking it to the Streets” to be “the best church for the community.”

There will be a variety of projects, some will be kid friendly and some will not.

You can choose the best one for you and your family.


CLICK HERE to register for a team or sign up on Sunday mornings in the back of the Worship Center.

Questions, contact Vince Cordova.


See below for a list of all the teams' activities!

Bob O'Dell's Team

Fort Bend Garden is a HUD elderly independent living facility that is clean as a pin. We supply $5 Walmart gift cards and they play for the cards. We play a card too and if we bingo we give the card to one of the residents at the table that hasn’t won yet. They love it when members participate that are bilingual in Spanish and they love children and teenagers.

Friends of North Rosenberg Home Project:


We have Neighbors unable to rebuild their homes and lives, still suffering from Hurricane Harvey.  Parkway is partnering with Friends of North Rosenberg to “Demonstrate God’s Grace” to our neighbors in need by loving on them while we work on their homes.

 

Come join our Flood Response Teams to help rebuild lives on October 28th. We will be repairing flooded homes by cleaning and installing insulation and drywall. These skills can be taught; you just need to show up with a servant-attitude ready to show God’s love to our Neighbors. We need lots of people:  Individuals, Families, and/or Grow Groups are most welcome.

Collecting, packing, and donating homeless outreach kits:


The Young Adults small group will be collecting donations to assemble "care kits" for the homeless, which will then be available to the congregation to distribute around town. The items we will be collecting are: socks, bottled water, granola/cereal bars, cheese/peanut butter crackers, and travel packs of wet wipes.

My family friendly project will be making place mats for Fort Bend Meals on Wheels. Our activity will be from 10:30 to noon and will include a family worship time in our usual Children's Worship/Chapel format. 

Ginger Neely's Team

Fort Bend Hope Project:


Ft. Bend Hope is a local community center in Rosenberg that offers ESL classes, Fathering classes, Citizenship classes, student mentoring, and more. We will be cleaning, organizing, and putting together curriculum for their many classes.

Mak Percival's Team

Student Project: Labor of Love crafts for Human Trafficking Victims:


This year Students will help us with creating crafts and gifts to sell at our Labor of Love event that will be held in the lobby during our Christmas Production: "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" December 7-9th. People will make donations for the items and all the proceeds will go towards Elijah's Rising; whose mission is to end sex trafficking through prayer, awareness, intervention, and restoration. We will meet in the Student Worship Center at 8:00 and will finish around 9:30.

Both Middle school and High school students are capable of these projects! 

Tim Swenk's Team

Home Project


We have potential for 3 sites in Rosenberg and Richmond where repairs to interior are required for elderly persons who don’t have the means to hire contractors.  These homes have been part of the HOME and UMArmy repair campaigns this year but just could not complete the work list.  We can be the team bringing these homes closer to a successful state of repair.  Skills needed are some basic carpentry, painting and creativity. We will have team leaders willing to guide and teach!

Jeff Fell's Team

Building the Set for the "Best Christmas Pageant Ever"


We need help expanding the stage for our upcoming Parkway STAR’s Christmas Pageant! We will be constructing two platforms that will be a part of the set for the show and will need some willing and able bodies to help! This project will be located in the Worship Center...meaning you will be in AIR CONDITIONING!

Fellowship, crafts, and games at Richmond State Supported living Center:

Its a Center that houses medically fragile & ambulatory adults. I plan on, hopefully doing music with them, 1-2 easy crafts & then maybe Bingo, I also plan for my group to sit & eat lunch with them. We would bring our own sack lunch. Im still waiting on the "for sure OK" for that. I do want people to know, that we will be dealing with folks that may have a trache G-tube, possibly non-verbal, most of them wheel chair bound,missing limbs ect. any crafts or game we do, most of the residents, will need help, moving pieces, gluing stuff ect. I mention this only because some people are very uncomfortable being around  this kind of population.

Dirt & Mulch Work: 


A New Territory elderly neighbor needs helps.  She is not maintaining her yard and cannot afford to do it or pay to have it done.  We will clean up and beautify her flowerbeds!
