Outdoor Services PKS Header.jpg

             

We look forward to seeing you at our outdoor services! 

We recognize that many within our church family will have differing viewpoints about meeting again: some will be ready, others will not, but we want to give to all the grace and understanding that we are called to in Romans 12 and 14. Those who are not comfortable joining us, please know that we understand, and please feel no guilt if you decide to stay at home.

FAQs

Do I need to bring a mask? 

No. Masks will not be required or provided. However, if wearing a mask is more comfortable for you, please feel free.


Will bathrooms be available?

Yes, for emergency use. We kindly ask that you use the bathrooms at home if at all possible, but we have two locations open should you need them: the Commons and Children's Wing.


Will there still be a morning service?

Yes. We will livestream our morning service at 9:45am (ET), so please join us from home. When morning services in the building are open to our congregation again, we will let you know so that you can plan accordingly.


Will you livestream this outdoor service?

No. 


I have underlying health concerns. Should I attend?

If you consider yourself to be a high-risk individual, we ask that you stay home at this time. Those who are not high-risk, but are uncertain or anxious, we trust that you will use your own judgment.

Yes. You can download the song sheet here, or you can view it through the Parkside app on the "Songsheets" tile.

We're sorry, but we will not be offering any refreshments or ice cream. 


What if there is bad weather?

In the event of storms or rain, the service will be canceled. Be sure to check our website and social media pages for these updates.
