We realize and understand that life here on earth is oftentimes hard and difficult because of sin and suffering. As fellow strugglers and pilgrims, we desire to come alongside you in the midst of your troubles and share the good news of Christ with you. We want to listen, love and share our lives with you in a way that brings hope to despair and light to darkness.
For those going through the daily struggles of sin and suffering, we offer counseling with a Parkside-trained counselor as well as seminars and workshops on marriage and other specific topics.

The coronavirus pandemic has presented many of us with new (or heightened) emotional and spiritual challenges. Our routines have been interrupted. Our plans have evaporated. Everything we thought we were going to do, has been canceled or postponed. Additionally, we've experienced isolation from one another: our community, our friendships, the support we've come to rely on through family, church, activities, and work, is now experienced virtually. For some of us, this time has also meant dealing with significant loneliness, depression, anger, or grief.
