Advent: The Christmas Journey
Parents, we are excited to provide you with a fun and free resource to help you celebrate Advent with your family. Advent: The Christmas Journey  is an activity booklet and reading plan that provides a picture for your children to color each day, along with a Bible story for you to read together. Our hope is that by reading stories from the entirety of the Bible together, your family will see that the coming of Jesus was prophesied and anticipated long before His arrival, and that the Christmas story doesn’t begin with Mary and Joseph, but begins in Genesis 3. Pick up your free copies on Sunday at the Welcome Area table or download the PDF here!

Women's Prayer Time: Dec. 12
Join us on the second Wednesday evening of each month at 7pm to pray for Parkside Church Westside as we ask for God's continued guidance to help people become committed followers of Jesus Christ. We'll be meeting at Emma Vogel's home in Lakewood this month (1291 Bonnieview Ave., Lakewood, 44107).

Parkside at Prayer: Dec. 16
Everyone is welcome to join us for this hour of prayer. Together we will continue to ask for God's grace as we aim to help people become committed followers of Jesus Christ. This month we will meet at the McAlvey's home (1296 Hall Ave, Lakewood, 44107). We will pray together and then have dinner for anyone who'd like to stick around for another hour. Email Matt if you are planning to attend and we'll see you there!
