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.
