IS IT A TRICK OR TREAT?

Christian parents struggle with Halloween. It's a day where our city celebrates (plays with) evil and death. It proves the blindness and naivety that much of our world has to the reality of Satan/evil (as well as the good side of the spiritual). Like Christmas, it's history and contemporary practice is a melting pot of morphed beliefs and practices. Each person has a unique (tailored or naive) perspective on it and its various traditions. And like Christmas, it can be used for good or bad. (Christmas can be wonderful if you forget about the people that suffered to make your Walmart toy, the impact that toy will have on the planet, the materialism and entitlement we teach our children in that season, and the debt that we incurred from buying it). Don't worry, I still think Christmas is [...]

PRETEEN PART 2

Grades 4-7. This is not your typical preteen program. You are going to want to skim read this, but if you do you'll be frustrated when your ideas/agenda/expectations don't match what this program is about. We have a desire to come help parents raise future adults that know and love God with all their heart. Because of this, we're designing this new program to help parents grow as much (or maybe more) than their preteens. The way we're doing that is by helping parents and students order their week and life by putting God first. Some people don't know this, but right up there with "do not murder" in the ten commandments is "keep the Sabbath". God's design for a healthy heart and life is evidenced and grown by putting our trust in Him (literally - this isn't [...]

BIBLE READING

The Bible was written over thousands of years, by different people, from different cultures, in different genres, so it’s not always easy to read, but when we put in the work you see the miracle of Scripture - it’s as though there is one author orchestrating the whole thing! It’s not just one prophet who had a vision and we’re all supposed to take their word for it, it’s multiple prophets and apostles over many generations that all share the same truth backed up by historical events, none more miraculous than the death and resurrection of Jesus! But, wait! There’s more! When we put in the work of reading to understand and seeking a relationship with God, the Word becomes alive and active by God's Spirit! The Word & Spirit illuminates your heart to see the beauty, wisdom [...]

Our Vision for Parkside’s Kids

We exist to train our children in the ministry of Jesus. “We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD, about his power and his mighty wonders.” PSALM 78:4 (NLT) Our children will have a personal relationship with Jesus. Every child will.... See their teachers live the faith; hear and be invited to receive the Gospel; Know that God’s Spirit lives in His kids; Know that following Jesus is a life of faith; Know that we are to become more like Jesus; Know that God’s will is good; Know that God is holy and gracious; and Know the love of God. Our children will know they are loved by their church family. Every child will... See their teachers love them; Know that they have a lot of adults in [...]

SIX WAYS TO MAINTAIN ATTACHMENT WHEN USING DAYCARE

The issue of how to care for children while pursuing career has been with us for many decades. We know what parents prefer: 76% of Canadians believe it is best for children under six to be at home with at least one parent. If parents cannot be home, they prefer options closest to the home environment, starting with relatives, then a neighbourhood home daycare, followed by other arrangements. The last choice for their children is centre-based daycare. Yet the same issue remains regardless of what form of care we must use, be it relatives, small neighbourhood daycares, a nanny, family members or centre-based care. How do we successfully pursue and maintain good attachment for small children? What does good attachment even mean? This article offers suggestions in response to these questions.

HANNAH’S TRIP TO MEXICO

I received the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Vicente Guerrero, Baja California, Mexico from August 2-16, 2017, with a few people from our youth group this year. Members of our group joined with other church groups and together we journeyed South on a coach bus. Travelling together brought me so close to people who, two weeks earlier, were strangers to me. I wish I never had to leave this group of people because they have really become family to me. I didn't think you could become so close to people in that short amount of time. Some may think that the bus ride would be terrible, but the bus rides were some of the best bonding times. At the orphanage, we stayed in the visitor centre. Every day, we would eat our meals in the [...]
