really needs some help with
raking, sign them up at the Youth

Parkside is considering joining a co-ed indoor soccer
league in Byron Center with fellow Grace churches.
The league would run for only the month of
November, with games on Monday nights
(November 4, 11, 18 and 24). This is a co-ed league
and at least 2 women must be on the court at all
times. It is for high school age and up. The cost
would be $10 per person which includes a t-shirt,
prizes and facility rental. If you are interested,
please contact Pastor Matt or Judy as soon as
possible. We have 4 committed so far.
If you’re fairly new to Parkside but attending regularly, we’d love
to take your picture and put it on our Church Family Board located in
the hallway outside the kitchen and in our next directory. This will
help others to get to know you by name! Please call Judy at
399-4410 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Parkside’s 5th Annual Holiday Arts
& Crafts Fair will be held on Saturday,
November 23, from 9:00-3:00 at the
church! If you would be willing to help,
please contact Judy Timmer or
Jane Tiffany. The Parkside Youth will
be helping but we could use adults willing
to help with the luncheon, the bake sale,
advertising, decorations, setup, cleanup, and helping the
vendors carry in and take out their items. This is a big event
with 35 vendors of hand-crafted items and about 1500 people
coming through our doors for the show.
We all want a loving family but it doesn’t happen by accident.
Whole, healthy, happy family relationships take quality time,
wisdom and intentional effort. And when it comes to raising
kids and maintaining your marriage, a little outside help can
make all the difference between success and failure.
Join us at Parkside for a new sermon series entitled “All In The
Family” from the book of Ephesians as we explore practical
insights from God’s Word to put the pieces together for great
marriages and family relationships. We’re in this together!
