Peak Ministry at Parkside Church
Where will you go next?

You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. ~ Isaiah 55:12.

Whether you’re looking for a family outing, a physical challenge, or a chance to meet some great people; come hike, pedal, or paddle with us.  Always check the website and social media for details and schedule changes.  New activities may be added as opportunities arise.

“Nature to a saint is sacramental. If we are children of God, we have a tremendous treasure in Nature. In every wind that blows, in every night and day of the year, in every sign of the sky, in every blessing and in every withering of the earth, there is a real coming of God to us if we will simply use our starved imaginations to realize it.”  – Oswald Chambers

Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths. Isaiah 2:3

What we do

One of the core values of Parkside Church says we have “Fun – Enjoying Life Together.” So here at Peak Ministry when it’s our turn to have fun, we do it together and it happens outdoors.

If your idea of fun is something outdoors, you should join one of Peak Ministry’s activities.

Whether you hike, bike, paddle, or camp, come do it together with us. We are eager to hang out with you.

Like Psalm 96 says, “Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.”
Why should the fields and the trees have all the fun?

What an opportunity we have to share life and laughter with the Body of Christ. So let’s go out there and have some fun – Together!
