Happy Young Girls
Kids Blowing Bubbles

At Parkview Kids we experience learning and worship through interactive stories, games, songs and activities in large and small groups.  Children 4 years old through fifth grade are dismissed during the service to gather in our Parkview Kids Worship area in the lower level of the church!  Nursery and Toddler classes for infants through 3 years of age meet on the main level of the church in an area furnished just for them!

You can pre-register your children here: Parkview Kids Registration


We also offer an exciting program for children on Wednesday evenings during the school year. At 6pm we provide a warm meal and from 6:30-7:30pm we gather in our Parkview Kids Worship area for an exciting and interactive lesson.  Nursery and Toddler care is available on Wednesday evenings.


At Parkview Kids we use the 252 basics curriculum. The material  encourages our children to dig deeper into Bible truths and challenge them to use those truths in their day-to-day lives.   We can’t wait to see our children learn and grow in their walk with Jesus and each other!  


It takes many people to provide a warm, welcoming, worshipful experience for our Parkview Kids Ministry!  If you love working with kids or enjoy crafts, music, planning and organizing, set design, decorating….no matter what your gifts and talents are, we have a spot for you!  Please see Jenna Kaganek to get connected with our children's ministry team.

Parkview Student Ministries

Are you between 6th and 12th grade? Do you want to be a part of a group that accepts you as you are? Are you looking for a place to belongIf you said, “Yes!” to any of those questions, join us on Wednesday nights for a time of food, fellowship, activities, spiritual growth, worship, and small group discussion. This midweek ministry is geared towards students just like YOU who like to have fun and discuss what the Bible says about navigating the teenage years.

We gather in the Fellowship Hall at 6pm to eat dinner, and then transition to the Family Life Center from 6:30 7:30pm. Every Wednesday, we pick students up at Forest Hills Apartments at 5:45pm, and drop them off after the program. Let us know if you need a ride!

Our adult ministries reflect our church's values.  There is always something going on at Parkview to get people together!  


Small Groups

It's all about building relationships and taking next steps in your journey toward Christ. God never intended for us to live life alone, He created us for community. We would love to help you find a place to connect! For more information click here.


Men's Ministries

The men at Parkview have activities throughout the year, see the events calendar for special events. 


Prime Time

On the second Thursday every month (except December, January and February), our own group of Prime-timers host a group from the Brown County Health and Living Center.  If you are a senior adult we would love for you to join us for fellowship and a homemade, delicious lunch!


Parkview Quilters

On the second Tuesday of every month from 10:00-2:00, a group of women get together to make baby quilts to be given both locally and taken around the world by missionaries.  They have a lot of fun!  Bring a sack lunch if you plan to join them.


Other Ways to Connect

We love to serve the children of our community by involving the entire congregation in our incredible Bible School program!   We are the county drop off location for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.  We have a community Trunk R Treat in our parking lot for Halloween, and host Red Cross community blood drives five times a year.  Check out our calendar for all of upcoming events!
