Each year, Parkside sets aside an extended 40-day season of fasting and prayer! We’ll be fasting as each feels led. It may be one meal a day, one day a week, just a juice fast or a more comprehensive fast. As we fast, we’ll be praying and “Seeking God for our Cities” (beginning March 6) here in western Carver County and beyond. We’d like you to be pondering and praying over what you desire to do, and what the Lord may be asking you to do!
Beginning Thursday, February 28 at 7:00 PM, you are invited to attend, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way, a 6-week study led by Judy Foline at Parkside Church. This study explores that life often looks very different than we hoped or expected. Some events catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We may quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she's also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. If you need help ordering It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way, contact email@example.com. Please sign up at the Connection Center or click here.
