A couple times a year Parkside Church takes the opportunity to go out into the communities surrounding us to make people aware that we are here and that we are a friendly and inviting place to visit. The goal is that people, who wouldn't otherwise come through our doors on a Sunday, may consider doing so as a result of meeting our attenders and hearing about the church in a non-threatening environment. Or maybe they will consider sending their children to our VBS program or a student ministry event.
We would like to thank the 45 people who volunteered to help at the Parkside Church booth at the Solon Home Days Festival on July 26-29. The festival theme this year was Mardi Gras. It started out a little soggy on Thursday and Friday evenings but perseverance was rewarded with sunshine and large crowds on Saturday and Sunday. The Parkside Plinko game for kids remained a crowd favorite and this year we had a “Mardi Gras photo spot” where folks could instantly become a jester. A lot of literature and candy were distributed throughout the weekend, along with many balloons and smiles.
Thank you for your service and for sharing Christ's love with our community.
