Among the core goals for Parkside’s vision for the future is the development of gospel relationships for gospel growth. Earlier this month, Basics Conference guest speakers, John Dickson and Rico Tice, reminded us that we are all called to do the work of an evangelist, speaking the truth in love, growing up into Christ and being multiplied.
We will have our services on May 29 at 8:30am, 9:45am, and 11:15am, but no evening service. There will be childcare (birth-K) but no other classes or LIFE groups. The church offices, bookstore and café will be closed on May 30. Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

On both a theological and a practical level, forgiveness is at the very heart of what it means to be a Christian. True forgiveness comes at a cost and is pursued intentionally within a community of believers.
May 8 marks the transition between our 60 Days of Pledging and the 60 Days of Thanking. To date, we have received $6.3 million in Faith Promises from 448 households representing 42% of our $15 million goal from 22% of our estimated 2000 individuals and families.
Our leadership team is asking every member and regular attender who has not yet submitted a Faith Promise to pick up a card, from one of the info racks, and place it in the offering plate. Even if you are unable to participate financially at this time please be involved in this way so that we may better informed in our decision making.
We encourage each of you to continue to pray for God’s guidance and to give thanks for those who have filled out a Faith Promise card. If you have specific questions or feedback regarding any aspect of Building into the Next Generation, you can either submit them online at parksidechurch.com/vision or call the church at 440.543.1212.
