  • A Call to Belong

    When a local family hosted a game night in Aurora last August, no one anticipated what would develop from the evening. Less than 24 hours after Anthony and Kayleigh Finelli received an unexpected diagnosis about their son, they attended the game night and shared the news. The response was overwhelming, with the group turning to prayer on behalf of the Finelli family. After that night, the group decided that they should study the Bible together and Joshua Wallace reached out to Dan Larison to become a Community Group leader.


    For the Finellis, the Community Group has opened their eyes to what it means to belong to the church. “We have a large Christian family who live locally and we tend to lean on them for prayer, encouragement, and spiritual guidance. But the support we have received from this group has shown us that also being a part of the body of Christ is important. It feels like an extension of the family.” Read More >

    Community Groups Fall 2020

    Start Time: Mon 14, Sept. 2020, 6:30 p.m.
    End Time: Fri 21, May 2021, 6:30 p.m.

    Community Groups will begin meeting after the summer break starting the week of September 14th and will be studying the book of Philippians.  Our groups, led by one or more members, are typically composed of 10-20 people and are designed to be a smaller place for people to study the Bible, pray and develop meaningful relationships with others.  The groups typically are organized by community and meet twice a month during the week.

    Due to the unique circumstances of our present situation, the groups are meeting in a variety of formats including in-person, exclusively online, at the church or some combination. We encourage you to consider becoming a part of a community group this fall but you can also join at any time.

    To find a group in your community and to get more information, please go to the Community Group finder at parksidechurch.com/communitygroups.
