Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
For Friends & Family of Parkside Baptist Church
October 17-26, 2023

The Parkside family would like to invite you to join us for a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in October of 2023. A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is the opportunity to stand where Paul preached, kneel where Abraham prayed, enter the City of David, and walk where Jesus walked.  Getting to see where our heritage of faith began, and getting to do it with friends who love the Lord, is an opportunity of a lifetime we hope you can be a part of. Below is some basic information about the trip. We will update this page with more information, news, and tips in the coming months.
