Can You Make and Share a Meal?

"What a low-key but very impactful way of serving and ministering in the church body, you were truly a blessing to me." —A meals receipient

Our Meals Ministry provides food for Parkside members and attenders at times of funerals, births, adoptions, and difficult situations. Meeting this practical, physical need is a way we seek to care for our church body in times of transition.

If you enjoy cooking, baking, or even ordering and picking up take-out, consider volunteering to support families by serving in one or more of the following ministries:

  • Funeral Meals: Prepare a meal and bring it to Parkside on short notice, help serve a meal, or volunteer to do both.
  • New Baby Meals: Prepare and deliver a meal to a new mom in your area.
  • Samaritan Meals: Prepare and deliver a meal in your area during an unexpected illness, surgery recovery, or other short-term need.

"You'll never know how much your kindness and service meant to us and how much we appreciated your hard work, the food was wonderful." —A funeral meal family

Yes, I'd like to serve! >
