We Truly Love Windsor!
We're committed to not just talking the talk, but also walking the walk and living out the implications of the gospel: loving our neighbour, acting with compassion, serving, speaking kindly and with encouragement, giving a cup of water in Jesus' name. God has entrusted each of us with the assignment of being a catalyst. How will you respond?
Parkwood has purchased a building in downtown Windsor at the corner of Wyandotte and Parent, the former Lazarus Outreach Centre, and we're excited to launch this new church campus in September. Renovations to the building could cost anywhere from $200,000 to $250,000, and there will be other expenses and startup costs. Read more about our vision below...
Why This Location?
1. BECAUSE IT’S WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
One hundred years ago, men and women prayed and decided to pour into the downtown of Windsor, and right now, in our 100th anniversary year, we are returning to where it all began to re-establish our footprint in this part of the city.
2. BECAUSE IT’S WHERE THE NEED IS
This downtown neighbourhood is particularly broken. In fact, it might be one of the most hurting areas of Windsor-Essex County with homelessness, drug addiction, and great physical and spiritual needs. We want to provide care and support and be the hands and feet of Jesus to these precious people.
3. BECAUSE IT’S IN OUR DNA
We have a rich history of men and women who have taken great risks to step out of the boat when Jesus calls. We need to ensure that we don’t get too comfortable. This church is not a cruise ship. It’s a battleship driven by the understanding that FAITH IS OUR LIFESTYLE!
The miracle we’re looking for in March is a financial miracle. We are asking the Parkwood family to give over and above your regular church giving towards this initiative; towards keeping the mission and vision alive. Please continue to give your regular tithes and offerings to the church and ask God if there is something special you can sacrificially give this month to pour into this project. We believe that our God is a God of miracles, so join us and let’s see God do amazing things!
