      October 16th 8am, Parkway UMC Atrium and New Territory


      High School Students (9th-12th grade): We will be working with the Young Adults at Parkway to make an impact on the community Parkway is directly situated in. Young Adults will be knocking on the doors within New Territory and offering for the students to power wash their driveways and walkways while the Young Adults mow their lawns. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to become more comfortable in offering to do mission work for others while sharing their connection to Christ.

      Middle School Students (6th-8th grade): We have a HUGE church-wide project that will happen at the church on this day that our middle schoolers will get to be a part of. Parkway UMC is partnering with "Rise Against Hunger" to package rice and beans to form over 10,000 meals. This project requires forty to fifty volunteers, so we need all the help we can get!
