Our funeral meals ministry serves grieving families during their time of loss. Volunteers prepare one part of a meal (cookbook provided) on short notice and bring it to the church or help serve the meal following a funeral or memorial service. This usually takes place here at Parkside Church. This team usually serves about 8-10 times a year.
Help for the Bereaved
This ministry provides a meal for up to 75 people after a funeral service. This service is free to all Parkside members and friends when members of their family die who are not involved in another church.
This ministry does not involve a regularly scheduled block of time. The commitment varies with the need but on average, a person is called upon to serve once every 4-8 weeks. As a member of this ministry you may volunteer to:
1) Prepare a dish and drop it off or
2) Serve a meal on a buffet line
Please contact Kim Jones at email if you are interested in serving on this team.
