Parkside Student Ministry has a great mix of fun, games, worship, and teaching. Students (grades 7-12) are discovering what it looks like to have a personal relationship with Jesus and how to live out that faith at home, and in school.
We offer small groups (by gender and grade), camp and retreat opportunities and special events like Holiday parties, Back to School Bash and more. We would love for you to attend and get involved in our church. We are all about helping students pursue Christ and reaching others with the Gospel.
