Growing in Groups

Spiritual growth happens when we are connected with our community of faith.  And that connection comes best when we are involved in groups of some kind. We desire people to go deeper than just the friendly Sunday morning times to grow together!

Women's Ministries

  • mOPS

    The Watertown chapter of MOPS (Mother of Preschoolers) and MomsNext is hosted by Parkside Bible Church. MOPS is available to both expectant mothers and women with children not yet in school. MomsNext is aimed at moms with children in kindergarten through 12th grade. We are glad to host this constantly growing ministry! If you are interested in connecting with, ministering to or serving the children of these young mothers, this may be the place for you!

    Our MOPS Ministry meets bi-weekly in small groups in people's homes during the school year.  The groups gather for a large fun activities 3-4 times throughout the school year.

We are done by 8:20 am so you can be home for your family.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, men's group is taking place in person and via zoom.  Contact us for details to join. 

  • Men's discipleship

    Men's discipleship takes place in the fall and spring.  Men must sign up and commit to the full 8 weeks of the discipleship group.  This group meets weekly on Monday nights at 7:15.  It includes a teaching session, a group discussion, and a time of accountability with another member of the group.  Because of the accountability and group discussions, each session builds on the last, consistency is important. 

    New session starting this fall!
