What to Expect

We’re excited you’re interested in Parkview. We hope this information will answer a few of the questions you might have about worshiping with us. If you have additional questions or needs, please feel free to contact us.

About Sunday Services

Our worship service follows the arc of the gospel:

God, Man, Christ, Response.

With this loose structure, we are reminded of God’s holiness, our sinfulness and neediness, and Christ’s provision, and have an opportunity to respond to and be refreshed by the gospel every single week.

The primary elements you will see in every Sunday service at Parkview are:

  • Call to Worship
  • Singing
  • Confession of Sin
  • Public Reading of Scripture
  • Preaching
  • Communion*
  • Prayer
  • Benediction

Some secondary elements we incorporate on occasion are:

  • Baptism
  • Silent reflection
  • Discipleship stories
  • Confession/Creeds
  • Longer Scripture readings

A typical worship service at either of our campuses lasts about an hour and 10 minutes.

*Gluten free communion options available.

What is the music like?

Our music is a blend of contemporary and traditional, drawing from all types of American musical styles. We sing mostly contemporary Christian songs, hymns, spirituals, and occasionally an original song written by the band. You’ll usually see a piano or keyboard, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, drums, bass and several vocalists leading each week. We project the lyrics to each song, encouraging our congregation to sing and worship the Lord.

What is your teaching like?

Our teaching is expositional in style, meaning our sermons are based on a passage of Scripture. We desire for our teaching to be faithful to the Bible, centered on the good news of the forgiveness of sins in Jesus, and relevant to life.

What should I wear?

There’s no dress code and we’re generally very casual. If you feel like wearing a suit, go ahead, and if you feel like wearing a t-shirt and jeans, that’s great too. Just be yourself.
