Below are the mission projects we are emphasizing this month. To get involved, please contact Felicity Gordon or call the church office at 336-288-2710.
Share the Change Campaign
January 22 - March 4, 2012
Baby bottles were distributed on January 22, Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. We ask that you fill the bottles with change, preferably silver, and return the bottle to the church by March 4. The money collected will go to Greensboro Pregnancy Care Center, an agency that defends the unborn and ministers to pregnant women in our city. If you did not receive a bottle, that’s OK! Cash and checks are very welcome! Please make checks out directly to Greensboro Pregnancy Care Center and write “Parkway Share the Change” on the memo line. Check out the information about GPCC’s ministries on the main bulletin board.
Week of Prayer & Heck-Jones Offering for North Carolina WMU
February 12 - 19, 2012
The six areas of missions focus of WMU include: praying for missions, learning about missions, supporting missions, engaging in mission action and witnessing, developing spiritually toward a missions lifestyle and participating in the work of the church and denomination. These principles are the focus of each of the age-level organizations that we have at Parkway, from our Prayer & Ministry group, to Girls In Action (GA’s) and Mission Friends. If you believe in the aims of WMU and appreciate the missions education they have provided for children and adults since 1886, I hope you will support NC WMU by giving generously to this offering. The Ingathering will be on February 26. Our church goal is $2,000. To have a little fun with this offering, we will have the Valentine Post Office open January 2 – February 12. Bring Valentines for your church friends & make a donation to WMU-NC!
