NEW: Mixed Adults: The Gospel of John Ch.9 - 21
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.” John 1:1
“These things are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the
Son of God, and that by believing, you may have life in His name.” John 20:31
So begins and ends the Gospel of John, which emphasis on the glorious theme
Jesus Christ is God! This interactive class will continue the Bible exposition of
the Gospel of John that began last year and will include class discussions led by
various Parkside teachers as we seek to grow in our faith and the knowledge of
our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed in Scripture so that we may have life in His name.
NEW: Men’s Class: “The Man In The Mirror”
Solving the 24 Problems Men Face
Do you know anyone who has ever won the rat race? Probably not! And yet,
everywhere you go, you see men who are tired -- worn out from trying to win
this race that nobody wins. Is there hope? According to author Patrick Morley,
yes...absolutely! The Man In The Mirror shows how to live successfully with the
man in your mirror. This video teaching series and discussion time is designed
for you, the man grappling with the pressures and stressors of everyday life.
Continued: Women’s Class -- Gideon

“ADOPT A LAWN PROGRAM”
If you or someone you know is unable to
maintain their lawn and really needs some

Cinnamon Rolls or Dinner Rolls
Fudge or other Holiday Candy

1 large piece of pie or cake per plate; one large brownie per plate or
4-6 per plate; 4-6 pieces of fudge or candy per plate, and 4-6 cupcakes
