Missions  &  OUTREACH

What is our mission?

It is our mission at Parkwood to help people FIND HOPE in the person of Jesus and FIND HOME in His family (the community of the church). Our mission spans locally, regionally, nationally and globally (Acts 1:8).  We believe every person in the local church has a role in this mission; in fact, it’s the mission of each generation until Christ returns (Matthew 28:18-20).  Your mission can begin in your own neighbourhood, as well as reaching beyond Windsor to “all nations.”
We love Windsor!  But we want that statement to be more than a catchphrase. We want it to be a part of your lifestyle.  So we want to give you an opportunity each month to live out the gospel in every aspect of your life.  We call it the "We Love Windsor Challenge”.
Food Bank
One of the ways we love our neighbours (Mark 12:30-31) is by assisting those in need.  The Parkwood Food Bank provides people with healthy food who would otherwise go without. We accept food donations which can be dropped off any Sunday or during the week at the church office. Every Thanksgiving Sunday, we also hold a churchwide food drive to help supply our food bank.
Hours of Operation:  Tuesdays and Fridays, 10 AM–1 PM (closed on statutory holidays)
Phone: 519-948-7055 Ext 242

School Breakfast Program
Some children in Windsor go to school on an empty stomach.  The School Breakfast Program provides a morning meal that establishes a launch-pad for a child’s daily education and development.  And the impact also ripples into their family and community. We rely on a committed group of volunteers to  help prepare and serve breakfasts.

Note:  Due to COVID-19, our School Breakfast Program has been suspended until further notice.  Check back later for more information.

PRAYER

God tells us to pray for ALL people (2 Chronicles 7:14; Acts 17:26-27; 1 Timothy 2:1).  Continually connecting with God and praying missionally is a part of what Christ followers are called to do. Pray for our neighbourhoods, city, province, country, world; for our global workers; for the persecuted church; for how the church can best serve the kingdom of God at this point in history.
Parkwood Ladies Outreach Mission
Parkwood Ladies Outreach Mission (PLOM) sews seeds of hope and encouragement by sewing, knitting and crocheting various items for local groups and organizations that in turn distribute them to needy families. Crafting and creativity combine with community in making a difference. Their creations have been given to such organizations as  the Melo Clinic, Hiatus House, Downtown Mission of Windsor, and Huron Lodge, to name a few.

Note:  Due to COVID 19, projects are being conducted from home until further notice.
Missions Trips
Anyone at Parkwood can be involved in missions because the mission starts in our own neighbourhoods.  And the mission extends beyond Windsor, from our province to our world.  Consider being a part of one of our short-term missions trips beyond our city.  It will change your life besides the life of someone else!

Note:  Due to COVID-19, all our short term missions trips have been suspended until further notice.  Check back later for more information.

Our Global Workers

You can join with others in helping people find hope beyond our borders. Support our global workers by finding out more about them, praying for them, sending them encouragement or by financial giving.
