  • Touch a life...Become a Hospice Volunteer.

    Hospice is a philosophy of care, not a place. We care for our patients wherever they call home. As a vital part of our team volunteers come from all walks of life, and have a variety of skills, talents and abilities.

    Opportunities to serve are diverse: visit patients and families to provide companionship, socialization, and comfort, help with legacy work, transportation, light housework, meal preparation, run errands, make phone calls, help with clerical work, attend health fairs, make a presentation. Volunteers with specialized professional qualifications and training are also needed: attorneys, licensed hair dressers, massotherapists, pet therapy dogs and their handlers.

    The Good Tiding Benefit Choir invites you to listen for a cause.

The Choir will continue their legacy of raising spirits and funds by performing the Easter sections of GF Handel’s “Messiah.” There will also be guest performances of Dulcimers from Pilgrim Church on March 18th and Spirit Bound on March 25th. The two performances will be Sundays, March 18th and March 25th at 3 pm at Notre Dame Chapel, 13000 Auburn Road in Munson. There is no charge or reservations for the performances but a goodwill offering will be taken. All attendees will also be invited to join in the Hallelujah chorus.

  • 2017 Christmas Benevolence Project Thank You

    We would like to sincerely thank you those who volunteered with the Parkside Church Christmas Benevolence Project in December, 2017. The Christmas Project has changed over time and 2017 was a year of expansion. Since you were a volunteer, we want to give you a sense of the scale and impact of your investment. In doing so, we hope you will be encouraged by how God worked through the church and be encouraged to participate again in the future.

    What is the Christmas Benevolence Project?

    The project originated from our partnership with Scranton Road Bible Church and our children’s ministry, helping children involved with the Good News Kids program at Scranton. It has evolved and expanded to a church wide project and now encompasses much more.

    The Christmas Benevolence Project has three main areas of focus:

    1. Cleveland: Partnering with Scranton Road Bible Church & Building Hope in the City to help Cleveland families and children in need.

    2. Communities around Parkside Church: Partnering with local agencies & school districts to help families in need in the communities surrounding Parkside Church.

    3. Parkside Church Families: Assisting families within the Parkside Church congregation who are financially struggling and can use help & encouragement.

    How did the Christmas Benevolence Project address those three focus areas in 2017?

  • Tax Preparation Volunteers Needed

    United Way Services of Geauga County is partnering with Geauga County’s AARP Tax Aide program in an effort to help provide more area residents with tax preparation assistance this upcoming tax season. Last year the program was able to help over 770 people by preparing and filing their taxes for them. In Ohio, that is a savings of $256 in tax preparation costs alone. This doesn’t include deductions and credits the volunteer tax preparers often find that previously were overlooked.

    We are looking for more volunteers in 2018 so we can help more people. Help out your friends and neighbors here in Geauga County by providing a valuable resource and helping people keep money in their pockets!

  • Thanksgiving Box Project Thank You!

    Thanks to each person who donated to our 2017 Thanksgiving Box Project. We were able to collect 390 boxes and raise more than enough money to purchase all the turkeys needed. Thank you also to all those who helped deliver the boxes. We appreciate your generosity!

    The weather is cooling and the snowflakes will be flying. This should bring the delight and beauty of the holidays. For some, it just brings more financial burden and emotional pain. There are many families working hard but struggling to keep food on the table. With your help, we can share our joy with those in need and make their holidays brighter.

     

    Great music is always a part of these holidays and so members of this community have joined together as the Good Tidings choir with this event for 28 years to begin the season and help their neighbors. The members have ranged from ages 15 to 93 and take their vision to raise funds for the Geauga Hunger Task Force seriously. Hope is our mission.

    Parkside Church desires to share the joy of Christmas with families in need, both in Cleveland through our partnership with Scranton Road Bible Church and in our surrounding community by partnering with local schools and organizations.
