    Embracing Family is Parkside's orphan care ministry and we are teaming up with Cleveland's chapter of Safe Families for Children with an informational luncheon on September 23rd following the third service.  Safe Families for Children began in 2003 striving to engage families via faith communities to open their homes to care for vulnerable children.  We share their desire to help families before a major crisis hits with the hope that we can keep families intact, minimize children entering foster care, and reduce abuse and neglect.  If you are considering how you can care for vulnerable childrn in your immediate community then we encourage you to attend the meeting and pray about the possibility of partnering with Safe Families for Children.

    If you can attend, please RSVP to Linn at lnash@parksidechurch.com or call the church office at 440-543-1212 so we can plan for our food needs.
