Visiting any church for the very first time can be an awkward experience. What door do I go into? What time does it start? What is there for my kids? These and many more questions always surface. When you visit Parkview Baptist Church, you will find a friendly welcome from down-to-earth Christians who have a love for the Lord and their church family. There will always be someone to assist you with any questions or concerns. Our desire is that you will experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and powerful preaching from the Word of God. We want our church to be a place where you can feel welcome. Here are some answers to possible questions you might have, and what you might expect on your first visit.
What is the Sunday morning schedule?
9:45 AM – Sunday School
This is a practical teaching time, where we break into smaller, age appropriate classes, and learn about the Bible. We have classes for all ages, from birth and on up. Our teachers prepare weekly lessons centering on God’s Word. Children have their own classes, complete with activities and teaching aimed at their grade level. Everyone is always welcome.
10:30 AM – Worship Service
The worship service starts with inspiring singing encompassing congregational, choir, and special music for about a half hour. This is followed by the preaching which lasts 45-50 minutes. Most services end around 11:45 am to 12:00 pm.
What about my children?
As stated earlier, Parkview has Sunday school classes for specific age/grades. Following the Sunday School time, we provide a “Junior” Church for children up to grade six. Fun is to be had at junior church, with puppets, skits, fun songs, exciting stories, crafts, and much, much more. Your children will have a great time with our workers, letting you enjoy the worship time in the main auditorium.
Also, Parkview provides a nursery for infants and children up to age three. Our nursery is a safe, clean environment that is well staffed. The ladies of the Parkview nursery love children, and take special care with each child entrusted to their watch.
Should I bring my Bible?
We encourage everyone to bring their Bibles and follow along with the Pastor’s message. If you do not have a Bible, we will provide one on request.
Can I listen to services online?
Yes. Visit our online preaching page.
Do you have more than one service?
We have a morning and evening service on Sundays. Our evening service starts at 6:00 PM on Sunday nights. Our Wednesday night services start at 7:00 PM.
Is there a dress code?
The truth of the matter is, there is no strict dress code for our public services! We want you to be comfortable and ready to concentrate on the message of God's Word. Many in attendance will be wearing their "Sunday best" - the men in dress shirts and dress slacks, typically with a tie, and the women in appropriate dresses.
