Parkway Church to Sponsor Poor Man's Supper
Reflecting Parkway's long-standing commitment to Metro Ministries, Parkway was asked to be the sponsoring church for this year's Poor Man's Supper. This is both an honor and a responsibility. The honor is in having another public witness to our engagement with Metro Ministries. The responsibility is to underwrite $5,000 toward the success of the event. To date, between individual gifts and a grant from the Endowment Fund, we have $3,200. That is a great start, but we need your help to fully fund this commitment.
You may make a gift by sending a check to the church office, click here or through the "Give" tab on the church website. If you use the church website, when you land on the "Give" page use the "Give Now" link on the right side of the page, then scroll down through the fund accounts to Poor Man's Supper.
Thank you for your generosity and continuing support of Metro Ministries.

-- Allen Mosiman 

Anne Mosiman has been elected to the Board of Directors of Tree 4 Hope, our partner for the work we do in Guatemala.

PCHAS Virtual Luncheon Update and Information
If you were unable to join the PCHAS(Presbyterian Children's Homes and Services) virtual luncheon, you can see the short, 30 minute, online presentation by clicking on this linkIt was very informative as some of the clients told their stories, and Carla Daniels, LMFT-S Southern Region Child and Family Supervisor, gave a brief talk.

Live-Streaming Worship
If you haven't done so already, join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 11:00 on the Facebook page for Parkway Presbyterian Church (and not the one in Metairie, LA, Roslindale, MA or Cummings, GA)! The broadcast is live from our sanctuary! Click here for the link.
Having said that, we are working to improve the quality of your experience as you watch from home. There is still some of the technical equipment on back-order. Unfortunately, it is not possible to do an artistic and visually pleasing "fade" from one shot to the next. Gregg Fielden is experimenting with additional microphones to better balance the sound quality. Still, for a bunch of amateurs it is a pretty good product.
Thanks for joining us digitally and for your patience as we work to improve the worship experience.
