Join Us for a “Houses of Worship” Field Trip

Saturday, March 29 | 8:45am – 1:00pm

Calling all Parkway Youth (grades 6-12)! Have you ever passed a mosque or a temple and wondered: What does it look like inside? How do people worship there? What sorts of songs do they sing and prayers do they pray? If so, this field trip is for you!


We will meet at church before heading out to the Daar-ul-Islam Mosque and the Hindu Temple of St. Louis, both conveniently located on Weidman Road. After taking guided tours at each, we will enjoy a lunch of burgers, fries, chili, and shakes at Steak ‘n’ Shake on Manchester Road before returning to PUCC. Parents (especially ones willing to help carpool!) are welcome to join us!


Please R.S.V.P. to Jill Schatz/Pam Owens by Wednesday, March 26. (jdschatz@msn.com or 636-821-3478)
