Building Into the Next Generation
We invite you on to watch a thanksgiving video on the life and legacy of Derek Prime.
Derek Prime was a pastor at Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh for many years, was a mentor and dear friend to Alistair Begg, and went home to be with Lord this past March. "He was constantly reminding us that, along with him, we were stewards of the gospel," said Alistair, in his written reflection on Derek for Banner of Truth magazine.
If you haven't had the opportunity to get to know Derek through his teaching or writing, we encourage you to watch this video of a man who faithfully taught the Scriptures and reminded each one to "love what is good," according to the encouragement found in Titus 1:8.

Parkside Church’s Pastoral Resident Class of 2019-2020
“They keep asking me about games to play,” said Hunter. “What else is there other than Dodge Ball?” Robby and Kolby laughed knowing that they all have to take a turn with one of the most challenging demographics in all of church life - Middle Schoolers.
For Parkside’s pastoral residents, Hunter Hanson, Robby Lacey, and Kolby Thomas, no detail is too small to consider when discerning the call to pastoral ministry.
All kidding aside, these three men have embarked on a year-long exploration to learn the day-to-day complexities of life as a pastor. Each resident will spend time shadowing members of Parkside’s pastoral team and will get hands-on experience such as teaching large groups, observing one-on-one counseling sessions, assisting with hospital and benevolence visits, and attending youth events and retreats. Throughout the year, they will get an up close and personal look at church life from the point of view of the pastor.
On October 6, please join us during our evening service for our annual meeting. Reports for the 2018 year are available in all the info racks as well as for download at parksidechurch.com/annualreport2018.
Within the suburbs of Willoughby on Kirtland Road, a church is being built. The new building, with its white and gray exterior, is surrounded by a school, homes, shops, and service stations, situating it ideally for a growing church in Lake County. This building will be established as the new home of Parkside’s first church plant, Shoreline Church, formerly Parkside Church Lake County.
For two young mothers from Mongolia, a once-in-a-lifetime journey to Cleveland, Ohio, meant that their young children would receive life-saving heart surgery in the United States through the Children’s Heart Project, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse.
Forty-two hours of travel isn’t the most ideal way to begin a ten-day long missions trip. With three plane rides and a 12-hour layover in another European country in their sights, the team set off. Comprised of various ages, occupations, and stages of life, they were brought together by one common goal: the desire to make Christ known in a country that desperately needed Him.
The team of young adults were headed to Skopje (SKOP-ee-ya), Macedonia, to teach English to the people there. Only three had experienced teaching a class before, and one of those was a pastor! The anticipation of what was to come brought many worries and questions from the rest. What would teaching the class look like? Would anyone even be willing to meet with them? Would they be able to share the gospel, and how would they do it?
