Children's Ministry News

As a reminder, children's ministry does not meet during the month of July. Only nursery, toddlers, and special needs classes will be offered in July. Please sign-up here for childcare for kids with special needs.

When classes resume on August 4th, school age children will move up to the grade level they will be in for the 2024-2025 school year. Preschool children only move when they have a birthday. Check the bulletin for grade and classroom information.

Memory Verse Challenge 

It's summer and that means it's time for the memory verse challenge for children! Children may pick up a ring of memory verses today if they did not get one last week. Beginning today and continuing through August 25th, children can stop in near the check-in stations to recite their memory verse and choose a prize from the treasure chest. Out of town a few weeks this summer? Children are welcome to do more than one verse a week. Look for the sign in the check in area. Children who memorize at least 5 verses over the summer will earn a coupon for ice cream!

Dominican Republic Mission Trip Meeting - July 14th 

There will be an informational meeting on Sunday, July 14th from 5-6pm in room 210 at Parkside Westside for anyone interested in finding out about a short-term mission trip to the Dominican Republic, which is set for February 28th to March 7th, 2025.

During the trip, group members will participate in building projects for a local Dominican ministry, Bible studies with group members and local Dominican men and women, and potentially some children's and youth activities, as well as opportunities to serve local Dominican people in various other ways. A number of Parkside Westside members have joined the trip over the past several years, and they will be available to answer questions.
