This coming Wednesday evening, October 19th, we begin new opportunities of adult study at Parkway Drive. There will be two separate adult classes for men and women. Ladies will meet in the fellowship hall as they enjoy a Ladies Study with Sandra Medley facilitating this study. For the men of the congregation, we invite you to plan to be a part of a Men’s Only Study entitled, “Rise Up Parkway Brothers”. This will be going on at the same time as the Ladies Class, only the men will meet in the Auditorium. We are praying for and calling upon God to bring forth male Teachers, Song Leaders and new Leaders at Parkway Drive. I ask for you to join with us in praying that God will do so.
