Parkade E-News
Sunday, January 9, 2022
As we enter into the new year the harvest is plentiful. There are many opportunities to meet needs and reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but the harsh reality is that there are few laborers who are actually interested in gathering the harvest with Jesus. This Sunday, Pastor Chris will be preaching out of Matthew 9:35-37 where Jesus laments the few laborers and calls upon His disciples to pray for more laborers to join Him in gathering the harvest. Sunday we will be challenged to think of ways we are a part of helping Jesus gather a harvest that is plentiful.
NEXT SUNDAY, January 16 - Join us for a special dedication time in our Sunday Worship as we dedicate Christopher Argent as our new Pastor of Discipleship and Student Ministry and pray over his family.

As the 2021 Christmas season winds down, we are needing at least one or two individuals to help coordinate the Christmas decorations for next year. This would include inventorying current decorations and working with staff in the upcoming year to plan the decorations for the Welcome Center and Sanctuary for 2022 Christmas season. If you are interested, please contact the church office.

Blessing Box Needs
Wishing you all Happy New Year. Winter has arrived and with the colder temperatures we need to make some changes to what we include in the Blessing Box. Anything that contains water will freeze. Canned vegetables and fruits, soups, puddings, canned pastas, bottled water, canned milk, and juices will all freeze and potentially burst. During these colder months we will focus on stocking the box with dry goods, such as powdered milk, dry cereal, pastas, granola bars, etc. We are also stocking the box with donations of hats, scarves and glove, and chemical hand warmers. Our box continues to be heavily used. Thank you to all of you who continue to support this ministry.
Financial donations can be made to the church designated for the Blessing Box. 
Starting January 23 Pastor Chris will begin a new sermon series out of the book of Nehemiah. Nehemiah was known for leading the people of Jerusalem to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem after it had been broken down during the exile. Drawing upon Biblical insight from Nehemiah, this series will encourage us to think of ways we can rebuild the ministries of our church in the aftermath of COVID.
