Ministries

Bible Study / Sunday School

Bible Study / Sunday School starts at 9:30 each Sunday. Our teachers are well-equipped to share the Bible and minister to you and your family. We provide classes for everyone from Preschool to Senior Adults. The church nursery is available for children younger than Preschool age during Bible Study and Worship Service.

Preschool children are also cared for during the worship service in extended care where they learn Bible stories, play, and sing.

Our children’s departments, for those in grades one through six, provide music, learning activities, Bible study and love for your child. Our youth have a special place to meet for Bible study and are challenged to live for Christ. Bible study is one of the most important areas of a Christian’s life. We encourage you to seek out the class that meets your needs and allows you the most personal growth. In your class, you will become acquainted with your fellow members and feel the warm fellowship of our church.

Music

At Parkview Baptist Church, we believe that God is worthy of our praise! Parkview has enjoyed a rich musical heritage, and it is our desire to continue that heritage. We’ve discovered that true worship is that which honors God and celebrates and exalts our Savior, Jesus Christ. Worship is more than any one particular style of music, and being a multi-generational congregation, we are committed to a diversity of style in our worship services. We blend traditional hymns with joyful praise and worship songs, using piano, pipe organ, praise band, choir, praise team, or any combination of these. You are sure to find meaningful worship at Parkview Baptist Church!

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; admonishing one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” Colossians 3:16

Adult Choir – Rehearsal – Wednesdays at 6:45 pm.
Sings most Sundays during the morning worship services and provides seasonal music programs such as the Hanging of the Green service on the first Sunday evening in December and for the annual Maundy Thursday service.

Children and Preschool Ministry

Sunday School

Every child at Parkview Baptist has the opportunity to engage in a fun learning time of Jesus Christ and the Bible. Sunday School prepares the fundamental building blocks for a child’s life that will lead them, when the time is right, to begin their relationship with Jesus Christ. There is a class for any child, birth – 6th grade, located in the Children’s Wing.

Extended Care

Extended Care provides loving care to children ages birth – 2 years-old located in Rooms 141 and 143 across the hall from the Children’s Worship Center during the Worship Service.

Children’s Church

All children ages 3 years through Kindergarten are invited to join us in the Children’s Worship Center after dismissal from the Worship Service to have our own fun worship time including songs, story, crafts, games, snack, and more! Make your plans now to attend this exciting time at Parkview!

AWANA (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed)

Are kids too young to make a difference in the world? Not only are they capable of making a difference, but they are very capable of becoming leaders for Christ. Every child has an opportunity to learn and grow in Christ with the help of the AWANA program. Cubbies Club is offered for preschool aged children; Sparks Club is offered for children in Kindergarten thru 2nd Grade; T&T Club is offered for children in 3rd thru 6th Grades. Each week, children will work through their handbooks learning verses and books of the bible. Once they can recite these items, they receive an award. Recreation and Worship times are also big part of this ministry. AWANA meets each Wednesday at 5:30 pm in the Children’s Wing.

Youth Ministry

Wednesday Night Youth Bible Study

Wednesday nights are full of fun and laughs, but our number one goal is that God would speak His truth into your heart. Come give us a visit. We meet in the Youth room located in the Family Life Center at 5:45 pm.

Sunday School

Sunday Mornings at 9:30 am. Students meet up stairs in the Youth Sunday School wing, and then divide into two classes, High School and Jr. High. Sunday School is a time to explore God’s Word and broaden our understanding of His truth.

Senior Adult Ministry (JOY Group)

The Senior Adult Ministry of Parkview Baptist Church strives to offer opportunities for meaningful worship, discipleship, service, and fellowship. On the third Tuesday of each month, a large group of senior adults meets at 10:30 am for games and fellowship. A wonderful lunch is served at 11:45 followed by a program.
