A Church on a Mission
Parkway Bible Church deliberately sets aside 25% of all of our donations (before expenses) for outside-our-walls missions and mercy efforts. We are at the exciting beginning of our adventure as a missions-focused church.
The purpose of the Missions and Mercy team is to help the church display God’s heart for the world through the sharing of the good news of the Gospel, and the demonstrations of His generosity and love for every nation, tribe, people and language.
In response to God’s love for us and for others, we desire to serve our neighbors so that they also might know Him. We want our words and deeds to point people to our Father in Heaven who is “a father to the fatherless” and “a defender of widows,” who “sets the lonely in families” and “leads forth the prisoners with singing.” (Psalms 68:5-6a)
Missions and Mercy are at the heart of Parkway Bible Church. We hope 100% of our attendees will get involved in some way – to give, go, tell, disciple, serve, pray. There are a variety of ways to get involved with our partner organizations as well as projects throughout the year.
Walking with a Purpose Trips: We regularly send out missions teams – usually once or twice per year. If you are interested in going, or just hearing more about it, you can contact Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org. We need drillers (male or female) and female hygiene teachers. This is a wonderful opportunity to make a major impact in the lives of many people for generations to come

Local School Mercy Ministry: Burke School
Parkway Bible Church partners with the staff and faculty of Burke School, a unique Fairfax County Public School serving special needs children from K-8. Burke School is a public day school for elementary and middle school students receiving special education services primarily due to emotional and/or behavioral needs. The goal, premised on Christ’s mandate to “love your neighbors,” is to encourage and support teachers, students, and their families through a variety of means, including but not limited to: teacher breakfasts and luncheons; Thanksgiving Luncheon service and transportation; Angel Tree gifts for students and families at Christmastime; ”Blessing” Baskets; field trip sponsorship and assistance; Box-top drives; grocery/gift cards; and prayer. For more information on how to get involved, contact Jane at email@example.com.
