We realize and understand that life here on earth is oftentimes hard and difficult because of sin and suffering. As fellow strugglers and pilgrims, we desire to come alongside you in the midst of your troubles and share the good news of Christ with you. We want to listen, love and share our lives with you in a way that brings hope to despair and light to darkness.
For those going through the daily struggles of sin and suffering, we offer counseling with a Parkside-trained counselor as well as seminars and workshops on marriage and other specific topics.
