Parkside's 75th Birthday

Parkside is celebrating a milestone birthday this year! For 75 years, God has been working through the Parkside family, to help people find the Lord and take their next steps in their relationship with Him. We are planning to celebrate in some big ways in the coming months!!

75th Birthday Remodel Campaign

In preparation for our 75th Birthday Celebration, scheduled for September of this year, our Ad Hoc Facilities Committee has spent significant time examining our building and has recommended upgrades that will improve the look, security, and functionality of our church facilities.
 

Upgrades:

  • Backlit Signage for the west end of the building – To better identify who we are in the direction of HWY 75, Walmart, and other nearby businesses and restaurants.  This will be created with our Parkside logo.

  • Security Door in the south hallway leading to the children’s area – To create greater security for our children in grades 4 and under.  This is a metal and glass door that will allow only authorized personnel into the kids’ area.

  • Loading Ramp to Worship Center platform – To make it easier and safer to load bigger items to the stage area (piano and other large items for special events).  This will also increase accessibility for those with special mobility needs.

  • Replace lighting system in the Worship Center – To provide reliable control of house and stage lighting, creating a cohesive, consistent lighting environment.  Current system is vulnerable and not serviceable. It also uses a variety of types of lighting that do not coordinate with each other and cannot be controlled at a central location.  Current light board is antiquated/limited, not fully functioning, and not serviceable.

  • Remove carpet in hallways and replace with vinyl plank flooring (professional installation) – To provide a more durable, easier to maintain, and updated aesthetic to the hallways. Current carpet is very old and needs upgrading/updating.

  • Remove carpet in the Worship Center and replace with carpet squares (professional installation) – To provide a new and attractive, unworn look to our high-traffic Worship Center space. This will replace the original (from 1988) carpet with carpet squares that can be easily replaced after stains, to maintain a consistent look. This will also repair existing holes created by unnecessary, unusable electrical plug locations in the current flooring.

  • Worship Center Painting – To update and refresh our largest gathering space and better reflect the colorful lighting that adapts with our service themes and various event needs.  Wood surfaces in the Worship Center will be painted a light gray color that will give a clean, bright, two-tone look to the walls.  This will update and brighten the space.


The total cost of these renovations will be no more than $150,000.  Our Finance Committee has challenged us to have a 75th Birthday Remodel Campaign, to raise $75,000 of that amount, as we celebrate 75 years of ministry, with the remaining amount coming from our Building Fund. You can give in person through the Church Office or the offering boxes near the exits of the building, online at thepark.org/give, or through the Church Center App.  Please indicate your gift is designated for the "Parkside 75th BD Remodel" in the memo of your check, on your giving envelope, or by choosing that fund when giving online.
