No matter your age or stage of life, there are opportunities for you to get plugged in at Parkside. We want to engage in meaningful community alongside each other as we walk through life.
SUNDAY WORSHIP GATHERING (10:30)
Every Sunday morning we gather at 10:30 to lift high the name of Jesus. As a church, we cherish the freedom we have to come together and sing God's praise, while looking deeply into His Word.
Sunday School Classes (9:00)
Adults connect and learn through time spent together enjoying coffee, sharing prayer requests, having a time of prayer and learning from God’s Word.
Classes for Adult Sunday School Classes (April 28 - June 2, 2019)
WHY CHURCH? - led by Thomas Clapper in Room 221A - Explore the roots of church to better understand the traditions that we take for granted every week. By understanding our past, we can look to the future and see how we should participate in church.
BALANCED - FINANCES & FAITH - led by Jim Nichols in Room 221B - This video series by Andy Stanley examines Biblical perspectives on finances and how to achieve the balance God desires for us.
Fellowship & Coffee (10:00-10:30)
Prior to our Sunday Worship Gathering, we have set aside time for our church to simply connect with one another. We value the relationships we have with each other and encourage you to join us Sunday mornings from 10:00-10:30 for donuts, coffee, and conversation. You don't have to be a member or a regular attender, simply join us as we enjoy fellowship together.
Small groups are one of the best ways to build relationships in our church. We fully believe that when we live in close community with one another, our relationship with God is encouraged to grow. If you are interested in getting plugged into a small group, contact us here.
Life Groups are groups of people that meet throughout the week for the purpose of experiencing community, while digging deeper into a facet of life. Life Groups provide opportunities for you connect and learn with others in our church family. From men's/women's studies, to unpacking a biblical topic in a classroom setting, there are Life Groups available for you.
Our current Life Groups and their meeting times:
2nd to Last Tuesday of each month, 10:00 am (meets at Good Samaritan Center in Waconia)
LIFE GROUP AT NICHOLS
Twice a month on Thursdays, 7:00 pm (meets at Nichols' home)
DINNERS FOR FELLOWSHIP
These Life Groups meet monthly for five months and are designed for people to interact casually over meals in group members homes. We kicked off our most recent round of these Life Groups in January 2019 but will be starting others soon. There are currently 7 of these groups involving almost 100 Parkside members and attenders. These groups are meant to include families and singles. Contact Paul Blezien at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how you or you and your family can become involved.
The Bible tells us to "cast our cares upon the Lord," because He cares for us (Ps. 55:22; 1 Peter 5:7). In light of that truth, we have opportunities to come together in prayer.
Sunday, 9:00 AM - Moms in Prayer for Adult Children (Room 220)
