What to Expect

We’re excited you’re interested in Parkview, and we hope to meet you soon! You can find some general FAQs below, but choosing a campus above will give you the best information as each campus is a little different. You can always contact us if you have questions:

What is a typical service like?

Both of our campuses offer much of the same content in each service, but may be slightly different in practice and style. Here’s what you can expect in a service no matter which campus you attend:

Each service lasts about 65-70 minutes and features Biblical preaching, singing, prayer, and more.

Our music style is a blend of contemporary and traditional Christian music. Typically, our band includes a piano and/or keyboard, acoustic, electric and bass guitars, drums, and two to four vocalists. We project the lyrics to each song on large screens above the stage, encouraging the congregation to sing and worship the Lord.

Our teaching is expositional in style, meaning our sermons are based on a passage of Scripture. We typically work through one book of the Bible at a time. 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. Each sermon lasts around 35 minutes.

What about my kids?

Both campuses offer age-appropriate Sunday School for kids ages birth through 5th grade. We have Family Check-In stations at both campuses staffed by Check-In Assistants who will help you find the right room for your kids and provide security name tags for them. Our Kids Ministry volunteers receive annual background checks and updated training to ensure they are best-equipped to teach and care for your children.

Children are always allowed to join you in the service, and we often have activity boards or bags for them if needed.

Students in 6th-12th grade have different programming opportunities on Sunday mornings depending on campus.

You can find more specific programming information for kids and students by visiting our campus-specific pages linked above.

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.

What happens after?

Each service concludes with a Benediction, or Good Word, by someone up front as a way of sending you back into your day-to-day life. If you need prayer or have questions following the service, we always have a few church leaders available at the front of the Worship Center to help you. Otherwise, you are invited and encouraged to stick around, grab a cup of coffee, and chat! Our Hospitality team is always ready to answer your questions. Just look for a blue “I Can Help!” lanyard!

We hope to see you again next week!

What do you believe?

Our church is affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA) and we affirm their Statement of Faith. You can read more about that here.
