Hi Parkside Fellowship Family
We hope you are doing well and staying healthy as all of us face an unprecedented moment in our lives. Thank you for giving your best effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19/Coronavirus. Life is very different right now and can be unsettling, but Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever! He is the Cornerstone of our faith.
As we mentioned earlier this week, now more than ever we need each other and want to encourage you to lean into your church family by praying for one another, calling one another, and checking in with each other. As your Pastors, we want to be even more available to you during this time. Our desire is to be available to meet with you, pray with you, or simply call you. Over the next week, you will notice more phone calls, emails, texts, online engagement, etc. Again, if you or someone you know has a need, whether it be prayer or shopping, please let us know and we will make it happen! Below is some important information for you during this new normal:
*The church offices will be closed beginning Monday, March 23rd*
*Pastor Doug (949-838-6981) & Pastor Roger (713-417-5733) are available to you
*Frequently check for email, website, Facebook, and sermon updates online
Additionally, we want to ask that you continue to faithfully give to the ministry of Parkside Fellowship. Even though we are not conducting church services on our campus, our church is still living out the gospel each and every day. Just yesterday, our church was able to provide 4 boxes of food and cleaning supplies to two families from Common Ground Church. With our connections to Family Promise, Compassion Connect, Beaverton High School Community Group, R12 Ministry, First Image, and so many others, Parkside Fellowship continues to be a conduit of ministry blessing. Other than continuing to give financially, another way you can help during this time is to donate non-perishable food items (canned goods, pasta, mac and cheese, cereal, peanut butter, etc.) along with toilet paper, paper towels and cleaning supplies. Please consider picking up some of these items the next time you are out shopping. If you have items like those listed that you wish to donate, simply contact Doug or Roger and we will be happy to come by your house and pick them up. We anticipate benevolence requests will ramp up in the coming weeks, but with your help, we can meet these needs.
Make use of your local post office drop off for sending checks or let us know you have a tithe check and we will come to your home to pick it up.
We will continue to provide sermons and distribute them online. If you need help with how to access the sermons, give us a call and we will do our best to walk you through it.
For Sunday, March 22nd, Pastor Doug will preach at 10am via Facebook Live on the Parkside Fellowship page: www.facebook.com/ParksideFellowship We will then post the recorded video on Facebook at 11am and post the audio version as usual at www.parksidefellowship.org/sermons
Know that we are praying for you daily. Scripture teaches that prayers are heard by the One who created the universe. He has all power and cares deeply for you. Rest in knowing you are loved.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
II Timothy 1:7
