What to Expect

At Parkside Church we like to say there's "no perfect people allowed." This means we bring our messy, imperfect lives to church each week expecting God to show up as we pursue knowing Him together. Life's too short for religious pretense. We're more interested in reaching North County, the West, and the world one child and family at a time.

We've got a laid back casual atmosphere where you can wear t-shirts, shorts, flip flops, or whatever you feel comfortable in!

Whether you are brand new to this God / Church / Jesus thing or you have been following Him for a long time, Parkside is a great place to make friends and grow in your faith. Learn more about Parkside Church.

Take the 3 Week Challenge

If you are coming to Parkside Church for the first time we would love for you to take the Parkside 3 week challenge! At the end of three weeks if Parkside doesn’t feel like home and something good for you and your family come let our staff know and we will personally find a place that does, because it’s not about Parkside, it’s about finding a place you can grow spiritually and see all that God has for your life.
