Parkway Surprise Pal Project!

Share Button

Parkway United Church of Christ is getting ready to launch a new project called Surprise Pals. Surprise Pals is an inter-generational project designed to help weave folks from different generations in love and fellowship. Children in grades K – 5 who choose to participate will complete a short questionnaire about themselves. 

Click here to download the questionnaire. 

An adult who attends PUCC will pick a name from one of the children who sign up and become their surprise pal for four weeks beginning April 7, 2013. During each of the four following weeks, the adult surprise pal will leave a treat, note, trinket, or blessing, in that order, for their young pal here on Sunday mornings.

On May 5, 2013, from 2:00 – 3:30om, the surprise pals will become known to each other at our Surprise Pal Party. The party will include fun games like bingo and sundae making time!  Watch for more details in the weeks to come! If you plan to participate – and we hope you do – please place the May 5th event on your calendar in stone. Thank you!
