events throughout the year. Special events include sleigh rides, cross-country skiing,
congregational picnics, camping weekends at
(pay them a visit - and say we sent you!), special events to celebrate important
Christian festivals, choir concerts, Christmas pageants
and congregational dinners. Don't miss our Easter Intergenerational Event, Saturday
March 22, 2.00 p.m. - crafts and fun activities for the whole family.
Activities for Individuals
Parkwood offers many opportunities for people to get together. We have groups
for youth, college & careers, singles & adults. We have bible studies for
adults, one for men and one for women. We have activities for those who like
to sing and those who like to curl. We have ladies' and men's breakfasts.
We offer support groups for those who need encouragement. We hope you'll be
encouraged by these opportunities for fun and fellowship too.
The elders of the congregation share with the minister in an organized program
of pastoral care and visitation. To assist the elders we have a Pastoral Care
Team of trained lay people.
Individual, Marriage and Family Counselling
Our minister is a trained and experienced pastoral counsellor and is available
for personal, marital and family counselling. Lay persons trained in
counselling are also available, as is our youth director.
Seminars & Courses
Short term courses, seminars, membership courses, workshops, film series on
family life, marriage, lifestyle evangelism, developing one's spirituality,
recognizing one's spiritual gifts, social issues - are offered throughout the
year. Coming soon: the PARKWOOD PASTORAL TEAM presents two seminars:
Monday April 14, 7:30 p.m. "Grieving a Loss"
Tuesday May 13, 7:30 p.m. "The Effects of Cancer on Patients and Families"
After growing in numbers for quite a few years, this summer Parkwood's
facilities grew too. The expansion is now part of our history.
In August 1996 Parkwood’s website received an honour. A site in California entitled
The Distinctive Church Collection
selected our website as one of it’s "Best 3 Church Sites of the Month". The site
lists churches in the USA and 19 other countries around the world. They
also report news items of interest and concern. Pay them a visit, and be patient -
it takes a while to load that many churches!
