Join us this fall for The Course of Your Life: a nine-week intensive course aimed at equipping God's people to be disciple-makers by growing in God’s Word and sharing it with others. The heart of the course involves meeting one-to-one with an assigned partner during the week, and also meeting as a group for 90 minutes on Tuesday evenings at 7PM, beginning on September 29. Contact Nate Vogel for more info.
If you've recently been coming around to Parkside Westside, we'd invite you to join us for a First Steps Bruncheon. Unfortuantely, due to Covid we're unable to serve food at this time, but we still hope you'll join us so we can get to know you, tell you a little bit more about us, and introduce you to some on our leadership team. We'll meet after the first service on October 11 at 10:30AM. Sign-up here to let us know you're coming!
As we plan for our fifth birthday, we would love for you to share a brief testimony about your experience at Parkside Westside, a fond memory you might have, or something else related to making Parkside Westside your home. Please fill out the form here! The last day to submit a testimony is September 22.
Garden Christian Academy has an urgent and immediate need for aids to help out daily in the elementary classes. If you love working with kids and have a desire to serve the local community in some way, please contact Danielle Piscura at or 216-352-3408.
Church Community Builder
We need your help! For those of you who are apart of our online community, CCB, would you take a moment to update your information and upload a photo of yourself? It's great help to both our leadership team and other attenders to be able to put a face to your name and access your personal information when needed. Thank you!
Just a friendly reminder that masks must remain on outside while congregating per the Governor's order as well as for the duration of the service.
It's not too late to join a Community Group! This semester we will be doing a study called "Imago Dei" and taking an in-depth look at what it means to be created in the image of God. Please visit our Community Groups webpage for the most up-to-date information on meeting times and locations as they are subject to change; both in-person and online meeting options are available.
Join the Greeter or Usher Team
Our ushers and greeters are the first to welcome you on a Sunday morning. During these days of COVID-19 they are there to help you find a seat and answer your questions. If you would like to help out in this way, please fill out the Volunteer Form and select "Ushers" or "Greeters" as your serving area of choice, and we'll follow up with you. Bonus: ushers and greeters are guaranteed a spot for the Sunday service!
Children's Ministry during COVID-19
We are not offering children’s ministry at this time, due to potential risks to children and volunteers, and because of the difficulty in ensuring proper sanitization. We are, however, glad to make our children's curriculum available for home use. Curriculum will be distributed via a shared drive; if you are not a member of the "Children's" group in CCB and would like access to the curriculum, please email and we will add you.
If you would still like to participate in our Pledge Campaign, we would welcome you to do so. If you have already pledged, you are now able to set up your online gift through the "Give" tab in CCB or designate your checks as "Building Campaign" in the memo line. For more information, please visit our Building Campaign webpage.

A Stanza of a Poem by Thomas Kelly
In the midst of opposition,
Let them trust, O Lord, in thee:
When success attends their mission,
Let thy servants humblest be.
Never leave them,
Till thy face in heaven they see.
Talk It Over
Jot down one thing you learned today and talk it over with someone else in the next few days.
Ask God to Make You a Christian
If you are not in a saving relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and desire to be in one, then make this prayer your own and tell someone about what God has been doing in your life:
Heavenly Father, I admit that I am weaker and more sinful than I ever before believed, but, through your Son Jesus, I can be more loved and accepted than I ever dared to hope. I thank you that he lived the life that I should have lived and paid the debt and punishment I owed. Receive me now for his sake. I turn from my sins and receive him as Savior. Amen.
