The Great Commission: Matthew 28:16-20

“Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen.”

The Great Commandment: Matthew 22:36-40

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

This is the first stop for many people coming to Parkwood. At this important stop, we learn to connect with God and with others in the Parkwood family. The primary class at this stop is ALPHA a nine week class designed especially for three groups of people: those who have not yet accepted Christ, those who have recently accepted Christ, and those who are new to Parkwood. We want every person at Parkwood to accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and develop meaningful relationships in the body of Christ.
Our second stop is about helping people grow in God’s Word. The primary class at this stop is  CORNERSTONE, which is a great class that helps us to better understand what we believe and why we believe it. 
This is our third stop and it is all about discovering how gifted you really are! The Bible teaches us that each person has gifts to be used to serve the body of Christ…and beyond! The SPIRITUAL GIFTINGS
class is where you can grow forward in this important area.
No, this is not primarily about money! It is about your life. You see, God is writing a story…and you are in it! THE Reach class will help you discover how you fit into God’s great story.
