Parkside's Worship Ministry is a ministry focused on glorifying God through music and art. While worshiping God includes much more than singing, we take joy in the unity of lifting our voices to God corporately. We sing using a variety of musical styles ranging from hymns to contemporary praise and worship songs.
Our goal in worship is to offer God the praise and glory He inherently deserves, to respond to His character and promises which He reveals to us in His word, and to encourage one another to attain a greater understanding and awe of our God.
"Our goal is to worship God in what we call full-circle worship—as John 4 puts it, in Spirit and in Truth. We lift Him up with our heart-felt praises, while engaging our minds on the truth of who God is and what He’s done and is doing.
I encourage you to come and experience the presence of God with us this Sunday, as we worship Him."
Dave Purkey, Worship Pastor
