September Food Drive

Spanish Ministry

Fellowship and Healing

The Spanish ministry launched a new outdoor “MegaCell” this summer! All of our life groups now meet outdoors at a family’s home with a large property lot. This enables us to have unlimited number of attendees while maintaining social distancing protocols.

We have experienced beautiful meetings and have had salvations and healings! We have had up to over 40 people in attendance of this “mini service”. We plan to continue through September. We will return to in-home “Grupos de Vida” in October.
We thank God for the glorious times of refreshing we have had at the MegaCell this summer!


Alabaster Offering This Sunday!

Alabaster offerings are 100% dedicated to purchasing property and constructing buildings on the mission field: churches, medical facilities, schools and more. 

This year we invite every family to create and decorate their own individual Alabaster box. It can be a paper box, a wood box, a glass or plastic container. You can decorate it with your family names. After we collect the offering we will display your creative containers and then return them to you.
We're collecting the Alabaster Offering this Sunday, September 27.

Nazarene World Missions and Compassionate Ministry

Stop Human Trafficking

Last Sunday was Freedom Sunday where we united through prayer, worship, advocacy, and financial support with other Nazarene churches to support church-led anti-trafficking ministries.  

One of our Parkside members, Peggy Fava, gives important leadership to a ministry that works around the clock to deliver youth from being victims of sexual trafficking and abuse. Learn about the reality of human trafficking right among us in Placer and Sacramento counties by chatting with her and learning about her ministry.

In scripture, we see that God cares deeply for those who are vulnerable. By working together to end human trafficking, we become part of the mission to bring true freedom to all who are enslaved.

There are several ways to get involved: 
2. Sign the Justice4Keiana petition

Conquer Series

Men: Possible Life Group

Message from David Fava: I am looking for MEN who have an interest in understanding the issue of SEXUAL BONDAGE. We are currently reviewing a 12-DVD set , The Conquer Series, created by KingdomWorks Studios, in partnership with Pure Desire and featuring Dr. Ted Roberts, who has been instrumental in raising awareness to the detrimental effects of sexual addiction where men can discover lasting change and healing.
After reviewing the Conquer Series, I am hoping to establish a leadership team that would assist me in presenting a Life Group early in 2021 so that MEN can attend and gain freedom from this kind of addiction.
If you are interested in this challenge, please contact David Fava at (916) 628-5465.

Three Ways to Help

Pandemic Giving

Parkside Church staff is committed to respond quickly and creatively to provide spiritual encouragement during this unusual time. As you may understand, there have been many unexpected expenses related to outside services (new satellite dish!), livestreaming technology (new streaming service!) and sanitation protocols (masks etc). Your faithful giving allows Parkside to continue "Keeping Jesus the Main Thing." 
You can find church finance reports and board minutes on the church website. There are three easy ways to give: online, by text and at the church!
