As you look out your window and see the rain, you might be saying to yourself, "I wonder if Parkside is still planning to have an outdoor parking lot service this Sunday, September 27th?". The answer to your question is a big.....YES!!
According to the weather predictions I've looked at, the weather for Sunday should be partly cloudy with a high of 71 degrees, so as of now, we are planning to meet outside this Sunday, September 27th at 9:30am. We will let you know if anything changes.
I also wanted to let you know that at the end of our service this Sunday, we plan to celebrate Bill Walker's 90th birthday. Pastor Norm will be sharing some thoughts on Bill's legacy here at Parkside and we will sing, with masks on, "Happy Birthday" to Bill!
After the service, consider joining us in the worship center at 10:45am for our discipleship class taught by Larry Annes. Here is an excerpt of the class offering:
“Few pastors or Christian writers have dared to approach the subject of how proper eating and an active lifestyle can affect how we serve God. Author Gary Thomas does just that. And he reaches all the way back to the apostle Paul, who wrote that we need to prime our bodies to become, "an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work." – Promo from “Every Body Matters” book that we will utilize our main resource.
Please make plans now to join us for our last outdoor service for the year and our in-person discipleship class.
As with past services, we will provide chairs, bottled water and pop-ups to help with shading. As a reminder, below is the list of COVID-19 statewide gathering requirements that Parkside will be following:
While we are excited to offer this opportunity to gather together as a church family and worship God, we also recognize that there are those who will not be able or do not feel comfortable attending a public gathering. With this in mind, Sunday's church service will be available via livestream on YouTube beginning at 9:30am.
You can watch the livestream worship service the same way you watch the service every Sunday. Simply go to our webpage, www.parksidefellowship.org. Once you are on our home page, scroll down to where you see "SCHEDULE". You can then click on either the "streaming on youtube" or "streaming on facebook" and you will be automatically directed to the service.
Also, for those of you who are not able to attend the live service, we will still have our regular zoom meeting at 11:00am.

I hope to see many of you this Sunday at 9:30am in our church parking lot! Also, if you know of someone that does not receive our email, please let them know about this Sunday's opportunity.
Finally, thank you for being a church that prays!
See you Sunday.
Doug Boyd - Sr. Pastor
