Fellowship Hall Update
Another hurdle has been cleared! The structural engineer has certified the framing for the new windows. The previous windows were framed with wood. The new windows have a steel frame that is attached to the structural steel of the building. The design and installation of the frame had to get approval from a structural engineer before the windows could be installed.

The framework for the new ceiling is being hung. A "drop ceiling" will cover the old, discolored, "popcorn" ceiling treatment. New LED lights will be installed as well.

On the exterior of the building, the gray wood treatment covering the damage from Hurricane Celia has been replaced with hardy board in an attractive design.

Stay tuned for further updates!

Mission Presbytery Mid-Winter Retreat
The Mid-Winter Retreat for Middle and High School students is an annual event highly anticipated by our youth. Held at Mo-Ranch, Parkway youth have been attending this event for years.

This year, Mid-Winter goes virtual this weekend starting Friday evening. Youth will still get to be in small groups, hear keynote speakers, and participate in energizers, but from the comforts of their own homes. The schedule is as follows: Friday: 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., Saturday 9:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m., and Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Our prayers for our youth are that their experience at Mid-Winter can focus less on safe travel and more for that transformative spiritual experience that brings them closer to Jesus Christ.
