Then Sings My Soul

Summer is just around the corner and we are already planning some engaging ways to be in worship together but WE NEED YOUR HELP! For 7 weeks, beginning June 10th, we will focus on the music of our faith during our Sunday morning worship. We will listen to the stories behind some of our favorite hymns and reflect on the message these songs of faith still hold for us today. This is how you can help: Throughout the month of May, let us know your favorite hymns or praise songsWe will use the songs collected to order our worship June 10th – July 29th. This will be a spirit-filled, musical time for us at Parkway Hills! You don’t want to miss it!

Dawn will have a taco bar set up in her home (directions here); you bring drinks, a side, or a dessert to share.

East Flora Teacher Appreciation

Everyone has had that special teacher who made a difference in their lives. Did you miss the chance to say thank you? Or maybe you did not realize the impact they had until much later? We've created an opportunity for you to show appreciation to a teacher who is playing a significant role in the lives of the children at East Flora Elementary School. On Friday, May 18th we will be delivering a homemade, (or store bought!), dessert for each faculty and staff member at East Flora to take home and share with their families as they celebrate the end of another successful year. For details on how to participate in this "tasteful" act of appreciation, CLICK HERE. Contact Allison Jordan at 601-259-0812 if you have any questions, or let her know you would like to help deliver the desserts to East Flora Elementary on Friday, May 18th.
