BE SAYING WOW WHAT A KITCHEN THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD NEVER CHANGES. BUT CHURCHES HAVE TO ADAPT WITH THE TIMES AND GROW AND CHANGE OR THEY’RE NOT GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO REACH PEOPLE AND SO IT’S IT’S COOL TO BE PART CHURCH THAT IS HAS CONTINUED TO DO THAT WORDS FROM A MEMBER OF THE PASTOR’S COUNCIL AT THE PARKWAY CHURCH OF GOD IN SALISBURY THE CHURCH MARKING A MAJOR MILESTONE THIS YOU’RE HAVING SERVED THE COMMUNITY FOR A CENTURY YEAH. I REALIZED KATIE’S REALLY VISITED THE CHURCH TO HEAR THEIR STORY AND FIND OUT WHAT THEIR CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION WILL LOOK LIKE WHAT STARTED AS A SMALL PRAYER MEETING IS NOW A CHURCH WITH BETWEEN THREE AND FOUR HUNDRED MEMBERS THAT SITS ON EDISON STREET IN SALT VERY PARKWAY CHURCH OF GOD WAS STARTED BACK IN 1919 BY AN 18 YEAR OLD MAN NAMED PAUL WALKER. HE BIRTH WAS A PART OF THE PENTECOSTAL REVIVAL SO IT BECAME A VERY EXPRESSIVE WERE WORSHIP EXPERIENCE AND EXPERIENCE ALL CONNECTION WITH GOD. THAT BROUGHT PEOPLE TO A PLACE WHERE THEY RECOGNIZED AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT THAT WAS THE START OF A PENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT HERE ON THE EASTERN SHORE THIS CHURCH IN PARTICULAR WAS FIRST HELD IN SOMEONE’S HOME THEY THEN BUILT A CHURCH IN THE 20S IN THE PINE RIDGE AREA WHICH NO LONGER STANDS THEY BUILT THIS BUILDING IN THE 50S UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF DR. RAYMOND CRAWLEY LEAD PASTOR GREG MORRIS SAYS SEEING ALL IT’S COME TO BE WOULD AFFIRM THE FAITH OF THE LATE PAUL WALKER HE WOULD PROBABLY SAY WELL I KNEW THAT GOD WAS GOING TO MAKE SOMETHING GREAT HAPPEN. LOOKING AROUND THE SANCTUARY IT’S NOT HARD TO SEE THAT THIS IS A CHURCH THAT WELCOMES FOLKS FROM ALL COUNTRIES AND CULTURES. I AM HAITIAN AMERICAN AND WHERE EVER YOU YOU ARE WHEREVER YOU SAID YOU ARE MORE MA MORE LIKELY TO SIT NEXT TO SOMEONE THAT IS A DIFFERENT CULTURE NOT JUST AMERICAN SANDERS SAYING TO YOU IS THE SOCIAL MEDIA AND WORSHIP DIRECTOR PARKWAY. HE IS ONE OF SO MANY WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED REAL LIFE CHANGE FROM BEING PART OF THIS CHURCH. I’VE LEARNED TO JUST I HAVE LEARNED HOW TO JUST SPIRITUALLY GROW AND GROW. MY RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST AND JUST BE A MAN OF GOD THE MAN OF GOD I SHOULD BE AND IN THE WORLD IN THE CHURCH ISN’T JUST IMPACTING THE LIVES OF FOLKS WHO COME THROUGH THE DOORS ON SUNDAY THEY PARTNER WITH NUMEROUS ORGANIZATIONS TO HELP SERVE BOTH THE COMMUNITY AND THE WORLD WE PARTNERED WITH MANY OF THE LOCAL PLACES THAT ARE LOCAL MISSIONS AND THAT’S ABOUT A DUPLICATE EFFORT. WE EXTEND OUT TO THE STATE AND AND THROUGH OUR VARIOUS PARTNERSHIPS WITH DIFFERENT MISSIONARIES THAT THAT LOVE EXTENDS BEYOND AROUND THE GLOBE WE BELIEVE THAT’S THAT’S THE MESSAGE CHRISTIANITY THAT WE ARE A PEOPLE WHO REPRESENT CHRIST WHO WENT OUT AND TOUCHED THE HURTING OF HUMANITY. HE SAID I DIDN’T COME TO FOR THOSE WHO ARE WELL I CAME FOR THOSE WHO WERE SICK AND SO WHEN HE SPOKE THAT HE WAS NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT THE PHYSICAL ASPECTS BUT THE SPIRITUAL ASPECT AND SO WE’RE JUST TRYING TO TOUCH PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE ADMINISTERED TO THEM IN A WAY THAT HELPS TRANSFORM THEIR WHY THEY BELIEVE THAT EVERY MOMENT IS A MISSION THEY WELCOME OPPORTUNITIES TO LOVE OTHERS AND SHOW THEM KINDNESS IF YOUR HEARTS OPEN YOUR EYES BENDERS ALWAYS CHANGES AND SERVE PEOPLE IN NEED AND SMALL WAYS BIG WAYS ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SPREADING MESSAGES LIKE THIS ONE IS AN INCREDIBLE ACCOMPLISHMENT AND ONE THAT SHOULD BE CELEBRATED.
