You would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful church, or a more welcoming and good-hearted people than you’ll find at Parkside Church in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. My mom and sister and I spent an October weekend at a conference there, and were greeted as if we were family. Which, as followers of Jesus Christ, we are. But still, their warmth and sweet-natured friendliness warmed my heart. I felt as if I were at home, and I was so glad to be there.
One small note: the church isn’t in Chagrin Falls. In fact, you can’t see the church from Chagrin Falls. You can’t walk to it from Chagrin Falls. It’s about a half an hour southeast in either Solon or Aurora, depending upon where the actual township borders lie. I do not know why the address is 7100 Pettibone Road, Chagrin Falls, Ohio. There’s a great cafe, the Fresh Start, in Chagrin Falls. It’s a good place to stop and eat while you look at the map and plan your route down to the church.
