Community Involvement

Community Involvement is Parkside’s effort to go outside the walls of the church building and into the community. We desire to see the people who make up Parkside Church mobilized and involved in their communities for the sake of the gospel. Therefore, we want to hold or participate in events and make strategic partnerships in the communities where Parkside Church is represented by her members and attenders. These events and partnerships will provide opportunities to engage with individuals and the community at large in ways that promote the gospel.

    Thanksgiving Box Project 2021

    Every fall for the past 35 years, Parkside Church has helped provide complete Thanksgiving dinners to families in the Cleveland area. Boxes filled with non-perishable food and a whole roasting turkey are hand-delivered to those who might otherwise be unable to enjoy the holiday with a traditional meal.


    We invite you and your family to join us as we partner with Scranton Road Bible Church to make this Thanksgiving Day brighter for 300 families.



  • American Red Cross Volunteers Needed

    Severe weather-related disasters are becoming more frequent and more intense. We are once again expecting to see a well-above normal wildfire and hurricane season this year. This year’s wildfire season is already very active and dangerous because of the severe drought and dry woodlands across the west. The Red Cross has an urgent need for volunteers who are willing to train now and potentially deploy (14-day commitment) to a Red Cross Disaster Relief Operation. Volunteers are needed for the following roles.


    Shelter Support

    Compassionate and committed individuals are needed to support sheltering efforts this disaster season. Shelter volunteers support the day-to-day activities within a shelter which may include working in reception, registration, feeding, dormitory, information or other vital areas within a shelter. Free online training will be provided.


    Disaster Health Services

    Are you a licensed healthcare professional? If so, we also have a high need for health care workers to provide assistance and healthcare to shelter residents. Free online training will be provided and you can also obtain your CE credits. Licenses needed include: RN, LPN, LVN, EMT, Paramedic, MD, DO, PA, NP, APRN.



  • International Student Outreach Opportunities

    Parkside families are invited to minister to international students arriving for the fall semester at Case and CSU. There are several service opportunities available through a local campus ministry including providing temporary housing, picking up students from the airport, and donating furniture and other household items.
