Dear Angie & Friends at Parkside:
Thank you so much for your cash gift toward the
food for the GGF Family Bible Conference. We
used it toward our Saturday noon meal. We fed
about 280 for that meal so it was very helpful.
The conference went well and everyone was fed!
With appreciation, Cheryl White,
GGF Food Committee
Thank you Parkside! After many years in ministry I am very thankful for
dear people like you who believe in the ministry the Lord has given me. I
would like to recognize and thank you for always being there for me. Thanks
for the encouragement you are and for making it possible for me to challenge
the Latin youth to live passionate lives for God and to be engaged in world
missions. May God continue to bless you abundantly.

MICHIGAN’S VOICE: NO TAXES FOR ABORTION INSURANCE PETITION Parkside is taking part in gathering
signatures for a petition to initiate legislation to remove automatic abortion payments from health insurance. Thus, we
will not be forced to pay for someone else’s abortion and those who want it would have to purchase a separate rider
from any insurance plan in Michigan, whether public, private or plans under Obama Care. By gathering 400,000 valid
signatures throughout Michigan, we as citizens will be putting the legislation before our Michigan legislature for a veto-
proof vote. The governor’s signature will not be needed. If interested, please sign a petition located on the table
outside the church office. Be sure to sign on the correct page for your county. If you would be interested in taking
home a petition to have friends and family sign it, you can pick one up on the table. Sign up soon as we will be

Yes, I would like _______ study guide(s) at $14.00 each
Starting Sunday, September 22nd, a new
Ladies Sunday School Class will begin!
This all new study explores the story around Gideon,
about God and His people – His love for them, as well as His
strength operating in spite of, even through, their weakness.
Gideon emerged as Israel’s hero, filled with God’s presence
and His passion for deliverance.
This all-women’s class will encourage us to recognize
our weakness as the key that the Lord gives us to unlock the
full experience of His strength in our life. If you’ve ever felt
insufficient, ill-equipped, incompetent, or outnumbered, this
study is for you.
This is a DVD led format with a study guide for the
teaching session notes and 5 days worth of personal reflec-
tions and questions. One week we will watch the DVD and
the next, we will discuss the study guide questions that
accompany that DVD session. This study will take 13 weeks
to complete, ending on December 15.
The cost of the study guide is $14.00. If you have
any questions, please see Ria Nieboer.

Women’s Class -- Gideon (see details in
bulletin) -- Sept. 22 - Dec. 15
Many Christians believe they can’t understand the Bible without the interpretation
of theologians or pastors. But the Bible was written to ALL people -- including you --
and everyone can understand its message.
This two week combined adult class will help you understand how the Bible is
organized, how to effectively read the Bible, interpretation and look at various
tools for studying the Word of God for your own pleasure and growth.
Know what you believe and why! How is Mormonism different from Christianity?
What do Jehovah’s Witnesses actually believe about Jesus Christ? What is the
difference between Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims? You will learn about the most
common world religions and cults and how they compare to Christianity, and
discover what to say to a friend, neighbor or co-worker of another faith.
All Adults: Sept. 8 & 15
