We realize and understand that life here on earth is oftentimes hard and difficult because of sin and suffering. From the complex nature of addictions to the depths of depression, we know life apart from Christ and His Word can be difficult to navigate and understand. 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 individual counseling with a Parkside-trained counselor. We also offer periodic equipping seminars, along with marriage workshops and topic-specific conferences.

Do you ever feel ill-equipped or ill-prepared for the work of pre-marital or marriage counseling? On April 6th, there will be a 1/2 day workshop that will help orient you to the broad and basic principles of biblical marriage counseling, and help equip you with some practical resources for counseling. There will be times of teaching, small group discussion, and question and answer. The event will be held in the Venue at Parkside Church from 9am-2pm.
This workshop is for anyone- pastors, elders, pre-marital couples, marriage mentors, lay counselors -- who work alongside couples in the church.
Each couple (or individual if you attend alone) will receive a copy of Jonathan Holmes' new book, Counsel for Couples: A Biblical and Practical Guide for Marriage Counseling.
