  • Get to Know our Pastoral Residents - Class of 2024

    If you attended at our most recent outdoor service, you will have been introduced to our three new pastoral residents: Isaac Shaw, Cameron Cronk, and Jordan Aho. Each year, we welcome a new class of residents who have the opportunity to practice biblical teaching in a variety of ministry settings, observe and assist in the leadership of adult and youth ministries, and participate in our pastoral staff meetings, general church functions, and more. You can get to know each of them a little further here, and as you see them around Parkside, please be sure to say hello!

    Is mankind an error-prone accident of nature or a masterpiece of engineering, ingenuity, and intention? For those of us who believe in the marvelous design of mankind, how might we respond well to those who think we are nothing more than an accident? This year's Westminster Conference on Science and Faith explores the uniqueness of human beings in relation to God, to human society, and to physiology, biology, paleontology, and genetics. The content is designed to be accessible to a broad audience, believers and skeptics alike. Please join us at Parkside for this simulcast event! Friday, September 29, 2023  |  6pm - 9pm

  • An Update from Parkside Heights

    And when they arrived and gathered the church together, they declared all that God had done with them…-Acts 14:27 (ESV) 


     We see in the book of Acts the pattern of Christian workers being sent out from a church and then reporting back to those who sent them all that God had done.  As those who were sent out by Parkside Church in late 2021/early 2022 to plant a church, it is our privilegeto share with you a little of what God has done in the last year!   

    The decision to pursue a church plant in the Heights began with a map of where Parkside members live. As we researched, we discovered that there was a large concentration of members in Cleveland Heights, University Heights, Shaker Heights, and Beachwood who would be well-served by having a nearby Parkside church plant.  For the benefit of these people, as well as that of the wider community, we began to target the Heights area for a new church.   



  • An Update from Missionaries Bobby and Julie

    It has been just over a month since we arrived in Central Asia. While we greatly desire to communicate more with the family of God for the sake of your prayers, it has been hard to keep up with so much happening. We have many things to give thanks for and many prayer requests.

    When starting off in a new country there are, as you might imagine, a lot of logistics. It can be overwhelming. Finding a place to live, visas, transportation, language learning, and children’s schooling are some of the major tasks with which we have been occupied. We are thankful for our teammates’ hard work and God’s provision so that within days we were able to sign a lease despite the housing shortage.
