Dear Parkside Family: Life has been a whirlwind the past few
weeks, but I paused this week to again read through the dozens
and dozens of cards, notes and letters that you sent us away
with. I found myself with a smile on my face as I remembered
some great memories and treasured friendships. Thank you
so much for the gifts of love and for the wonderful sendoff,
celebration service and dinner you provided for us. We were
able to finally find a house this past week and hopefully the timing works out for us
to move in right after we leave our home in Holland after Holly’s graduation on
June 1. Thank you again for your prayers for me and Amy and for our family
during this transition time of God’s leading.
Because He Lives, Pastor Rob
Dear Church Family: Thank you all for your prayers and cards during my surgery
and rehabilitation. All is going well—slowly but surely.
In Christ’s Love, Jean Foulkes
Dear Friends at Parkside: Thank you so much for the cards, prayers and visits
during the recent loss of my dad. Parkside is such a caring church!
Blessings, Melva Russcher
