God calls us to be in His mission of reaching out to the world locally, nationally and internationally. Parkwood seeks to provide ways for all Parkwood members and guests to get involved in mission projects both as a congregation and as individuals.

Parkwood members participate in a wide variety of Mission projects throughout the year. Everyone is welcome to join us in these worthy endeavors. As you explore all the mission projects Parkwood is involved in, we hope that you will be inspired to start a personal mission project of your own.

Fall Yard Clean up: Help seniors or those in need prepare for winter by clearing away leaves and yard debris.

Hydraid Water Filters: Donations are used to purchase these filters, which provide clean water for people in need.
