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.

THANK YOU so much to those who helped make our booth at the 2018 Solon Home Days festival a success! God provided sunny weather, lots of Plinko was played and candy and balloons given away. Almost 500 Community Day invitation cards were distributed and more than 100 One Year New Testaments were picked up from our table!
Our booth at Solon Home Days is one of just a couple of times each year that we as a church do an outreach in the community rather than asking the community to come to us. Thank you for being a friendly representative of Parkside to those you met during your shift at the booth. Please pray that those who picked up Bibles will read them and that many people who were invited to Community Day will come.
Our staff photographer, Julie Hahn, was out taking pictures during the festival. You can see her photos on our website here.
On July 26, stop by Mitchell's Homemade Ice Cream in Solon between 6:30-8:00pm and donate a NEW children's book and receive a free scoop of ice cream. This special event, "Bringing Hope by the Scoop," helps support Building Hope in the City, a faith-based organization in Cleveland that partners with local congregations, people, and communities to see the city restored to God.
The books are used in two ways: 1) They are given to children in tutoring programs at the beginning of the school year to take home and keep; and, 2) BHITC offers "Little Free Library Carts" at our tutoring locations where students can borrow books to read during tutoring and also to take home and return.
To learn more about BHITC, visit their website, buildinghopeinthecity.org.
The 20th annual Solon Home Days festival will be held July 13-15 in the front parking lot of Solon Community Park (6679 SOM Center Rd., Solon, OH 44139).
Parkside Church will have a booth at the festival and friendly volunteers are needed to represent Parkside by greeting people, handing out balloons and literature, and helping with a free children’s game. This is a great opportunity for Parkside to be apart of our local community and a fun way for families and friends to serve together!
Come join the fun at Solon Home Days 2018!Register
