We are in the season of Advent, as we look with anticipation for the coming of Christ in Christmas and the return of Christ to renew the world. The first two weeks of Advent, we learned about the work of hope and preparing for Christ with peace. The third week of Advent is joy! It is our great joy at Parkside to once again welcome Mt. Zion Baptist Church to worship with us, as Minister Andra Bell will bring a Word of great joy to our combined community. We seek to deeper our bonds as brothers and sisters in Christ, as we celebrate our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! If you are looking for signs of hope and peace, if you are searching for joy in this sometimes difficult season, join us! Parkside is a place where you belong, and we are working with Mt. Zion Baptist Church to proclaim and live the deep joy of Christ, who breaks down every barrier and gathers the world together as one!
