Parkway's Christmas Ministry Opportunities
We had a tremendous response to our mission ministries with Rainbow Village, Developmental Disabilities Ministry and Norcross Cooperative Ministry.  The pictures included are the family that Parkway adopted to help at Rainbow Village and some of the many items collected for the three ministries. One car load of food and toys had already been taken to Norcross when this picture was made.  If not, we may not have had enough room in the elevator lobby.  This in addition to over a thousand dollars in gift cards.
