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.

    Blood Donor Screeners Needed

    COVID-19 has disrupted our daily lives, but the need for lifesaving blood hasn’t changed.


    To help protect everyone’s safety, we have a high-priority need for Blood Donor Screener volunteers to take temperatures of blood donors entering American Red Cross blood drives or donation centers, following several enhanced blood donation protocols.


    In this volunteer position you can volunteer just once or multiple times, the choice is yours!



  • Scranton Road Book & Food Drive

    In partnership with Scranton Road Bible Church (SRBC), we are collecting non-perishable food items and new or gently used children's books for families in the Cleveland area. Each year, families who attend Parkside's Vacation Bible Camp (VBC) support a similar effort for SRBC through the canned food donations that are collected during VBC week. Over the years, we have collected thousands of cans! Even though VBC has been canceled for 2020, our effort to support those in need through SRBC continues. We invite you to partner with us either by donating food or books, or giving financially. Learn More>
