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 [...]

FREEDOM SESSION

  The end of September might sound like a long way off, but it will be here before you know it! And with it, will be Freedom Session -  a 20 week, intensive healing-discipleship journey that uncovers the roots of pain in our lives and invites Jesus Christ to heal those areas of our hearts. Freedom Session deals with real issues…pornography, broken marriages, sexual woundedness and abuse, depression, anger, fear and addiction. Beneath these symptoms, you will find a wounded and empty heart, looking for hope and meaning. As Jesus begins to heal the heart, the unhealthy and destructive ways we used to escape the pain in our lives become less and less attractive. Shame loses its grip on our lives and the lies that controlled us are replaced by God’s truth. More details (i.e. [...]

CONFESSING SIN TO YOUR SPOUSE

Confession is scary. For both parties. No one wants to confess their sin, but when done well, it leads to deeper trust and love. In the first Parkside Roundtable, Clint sits down with Tom & Sharlene Brooks to start a conversation on what confession in marriage looks like. Tom is a counselor. Sharlene is a cop. They’ve been through the ups and downs of marriage and have learned a few things along the way that will be a help to every listener. We’re praying that the fruit of this recording would be healthier marriages and homes. Would you join us in praying for those that listen and for our own hearts, that we would have the courage to live in the light and experience the beauty of living life in light of the cross.
