Help and Hope Groups

The apostle Paul, in writing to the Corinthians says this, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” (2 Cor. 1:3-4)

In reading this passage there are two things we can be assured of: afflictions are inevitable and God provides comfort in the midst of affliction. Maybe you are grieving the death of a loved one, perhaps walking through a divorce, or maybe struggling with addiction. Our desire at Parkside is for you to know that God provides comfort and help for you. Centered on the gospel, driven by the Bible, with the desire to build biblical relationships, our Help and Hope groups seek to bring people alongside those who are suffering in order that they may comfort those with the same comfort that they themselves have received from God.

Finding Freedom – Begins September 22

Finding Freedom is a 10-week discussion group for those struggling to experience freedom in Christ, whether from unhelpful patterns in their life or severe addiction.

A new session of our Finding Freedom care group begins on Thursday, September 22, at 7pm in Room A203. There is no cost or registration required.

Grieving With Hope – Begins September 22

Grieving With Hope is open to anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one and would welcome help from the Bible and the warm encouragement of others in similar circumstances.

Single Moms – Begins September 29

There is no cost to attend and childcare is available. This is a group for single moms of any age or circumstance. For more information, contact Theresa at brownmother3@hotmail.com .

Dealing with Divorce – Begins October 6

Our Dealing with Divorce ministry seeks to provide care for individuals who are going through or have been through divorce and who are looking for practical help from the Bible and the warm encouragement of others in similar situations.

Each fall we run a 7-week session on Thursday evenings that features a large group teaching time followed by a small group, facilitated discussion time. Materials and childcare are provided at no cost. The dates this year are October 6-November 17.

The discovery of cancer can be an unpredictable and frightening season in life. The Cancer Support Ministry is a Bible-based support group designed to help anyone affected by the painful circumstances of cancer.  Whether battling cancer currently or acting as a loving caregiver, this ministry provides a place to for individuals to share stories, stresses, worries and celebration.  

Our mission is to reach out to our church family and beyond by creating a confidential environment that merges biblical, emotional, social and practical support.

New Website for Desktop & Updated Site for Mobile

Those of you who visit our desktop website will notice that it’s been updated this week! The desktop site has been given an entirely new look, and the mobile site navigation has been updated to match the new navigation of the desktop. This new site is a vast improvement in both aesthetics and function, and we hope that it’s a help to you going forward.

With that in mind, we want to make you aware of a few items that will assist you as you visit our site.

New Categories

Our pages have been reorganized under new categories: Visit, Learn, Connect, and Serve. As you think about how you need to interact with the site, let these categories guide you. We included some of the most commonly visited places in the sample questions below.

Question: Where can I find Sunday sermons?
Answer: You’ll find that in the Learn tab, where all of our resources and church courses are.

Question: Where do I sign up for an event that I’ve seen advertised?
Answer: Make a note of the short-cut link from the bulletin or Sunday slideshow (Example: www.parksidechurch.com/Biblewalk), and type that in the address bar; OR, click on Visit, and then Event Registrations which is located under News & Events. All event registrations are listed there.

Question: Where do I go to place a classified ad now?
Answer: You have two paths. The first is under the Connect tab. The second is a direct link from the homepage footer.

Question: How can I get back to the homepage?
Answer: Click on the Parkside logo at the top of any page.

Question: Where do I find out more about Sunday Life Groups?
Answer: Click on the Connect tab, and you’ll see a category for all our ministries including Life Groups.

Improved Calendar

The Parkside calendar has been improved and given added functionality. You’ll find that events are now color-coded according to their type (adult, children, students, etc.), and we’ve added a sort feature that allows you to turn off categories you don’t want to see. If you’d like to see only children’s events, you now can! (The default view is set to show all the categories.) One further note: the mini-calendar on the left of the page allows you to select any date and view all of the events for that date.

Report Bugs or Broken Links

We are currently working on some minor post-launch tweaks, so we appreciate your patience as we do this. If you notice a problem or broken link, kindly contact us through the contact form on the site and make a note of it there. We’ll get that item fixed as soon as we can. Thank you!
 



REMINDER: Community Day is Sept 18

Join us this Sunday, Sept. 11, following the morning services to help us hand out invitations in the surrounding neighborhoods. Not sure if you’re up for it? It’s easy! Watch this video to see what took place last time.

She is thankful for the prayers for the retreat they held in August and for the eight teens from the children’s home (Kinderburg) who attended. Not only did they have a great time, but they also heard the gospel clearly presented along with solid Bible teaching and testimonies from the staff. None of these teens have yet professed faith in Christ, but have voiced interest in hearing more about spiritual things. Please pray for them to seek the Lord.

Join the Nursery Ministry

If you love little ones up to age two and need a somewhat flexible schedule for serving, we invite you to consider the Nursery ministry.

Nursery teams serve once every five weeks from October-September each year. Morning teams serve for both the 9:45 & 11:15 services, allowing workers to worship at 8:15am or 6pm on the Sundays they serve. Our 2016-17 Nursery teams begin a new year of service on October 2.

Parents who utilize the nursery are asked to serve; sign-up forms will be available in all nursery rooms and at the children’s wing desk.

Orientation is required for all new workers, and returning workers are encouraged to attend for a review of nursery policies. You may choose ONE of these orientation dates:

  • Sunday, September 25 at 11am in the Venue (during 3rd service)
     
  • Sunday, October 2 at 4:45pm in the Venue (the meeting will end in time for the PM service)

Register for a Nursery team today!
