“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.
