"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations." -- Matthew 28:19
Local missions are the core of all we do. Parkside reaches the lost in Denison (and surrounding areas) through service activities, financial support to local ministries, benevolence, bereavement, Jacket breakfasts and more. Active outreach includes Vacation Bible School, D-Now, Fall Festival opportunities and Reach Denison. Reach Denison is our outreach program to assist in various service needs and extend further to share the Gospel with those we serve.
Hurricane Harvey was a statewide need in 2017 and Parkside was a part of the team. In addition to have our very own people on the scene, we supported Houston area churches in their rebuilding process. Reach Texas is our partner organization for missions efforts prior to 2017 and ongoing in present. We are also a part of the Southern Baptist Convention Disaster Relief team.
Parkside’s annual Construction Trip is one of our most powerful national outreaches by supporting other churches so they can minister in their local area. Our nationwide ties deepen to missionaries we love in Aurora, Colorado: our very own Mike and Rosemary Alexander. Our partnership with NAMB is another opportunity we have to support national missionaries and connect with the needs of nationwide missions.
International missions have their place in the work as well as evidenced by numerous trips made including two in 2018: East Asia in May and Guatemala in July. It is a privilege to carry the Gospel out of our own safe grounds and into foreign countries. We are also partners with IMB outreaches through financial support as well as hosting “Secret Church” each year.
Prayer is a key to all missions efforts. We participate in honoring weeks of prayers for missions, as well as specific prayer time through a Women’s Prayer Group: the Shaw/Moore group which meets once a month to pray for missionaries throughout our country and world.
