Here's what's happening at Parkway!
Once upon a time, people knew their neighbors. In our time of unprecedented mobility and increasing isolationism, it's hard to make lasting connections with those who live right outside our front door. We have hundreds of "friends" through online social networking, but we often don't even know the full name of the person who lives right next door.
On Sunday October 14 at 10:30am, we're starting a 6 week series designed to help us to break this pattern of isolation and help each of us take the next step in connecting to the people who live closest to us! This unique and inspiring series asks the question: What is the most loving thing I can do for the people who live on my street or in my apartment building? What would happen if every follower of Jesus took the great Commandment literally?
In conjunction with the Art of Neighboring teaching that will be happening on Sunday morning, we want to give you the opportunity to dig a little deeper into this concept and surround yourself with people who will support and encourage you in taking the next step in connecting with you neighbours. That's why we're inviting everyone to join a Real Life Connections group this fall! These small groups meet once a week, usually in people's homes.
Real Life Connections groups are friendly spaces, non-judgmental where you can gain more perspectives, have personal discussion & receive support in a safe and open-minded environment with our hosts and facilitators. These times give your the freedom to voice your real opinions and work through the challenges of connecting with your neighbours in a real way. There are 6 different RLC groups that you can join and each one meets on a different time or day, so you can choose the location and time that best suits your schedule!

Every Sunday morning at Parkway Church is fun for kids age 3 - Grade 5, but every month we have one Sunday that is super, duper, extra FUN!!!! On October 14, our friends from The Zoo Crew will be joining us at Parkway Church for a morning free fun for kids. All kids will get a chance to get hands on with a variety of furry, scaly and feathered creatures while learning fun facts about each animal. We'll also make a creative craft, eat a snack and have some fun together. While the kids are having a blast with The Zoo Crew, parents are invited to join us in the Main Auditorium for the launch of our The Art of Neighboring series, as we learn how to make our way in a world where many of us have hundreds of online "friends" but we barely know the name of the person who lives right next to us.
GEMS CLUB and BOYS CLUB are back this fall for kids in Grades 1-6. Registration is now open, so click the link below to learn more about how you can make every Friday Night "Family Night" for you and your kids!
