Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved at Parkview and be a part of the gospel impact we have serving together.

Get Involved

We believe that growing in a personal relationship with God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, is the first and highest end of all we do. We also believe that getting in right relationship with each other is part of that highest ideal, and of vital importance.

We encourage people to not only make connections with one another on a Sunday morning, but also through smaller groups, (we call them “Life Groups”), Bible studies, prayer groups and service teams, that meet regularly.

There are five things that we are all about. We value Worship, Mission, Discipleship, Community and Service.

There are many things we do better together than alone.  This is just the way God made us, and that is why He gave us the church.  At Parkview we believe that, together, we learn more accurate truth about God so that we may know Him better, we grow more steadily like Jesus, and we serve more effectively.  We invite you to become involved with the Parkview family as we help one another become more fully devoted followers of Jesus

Purposely Practice

We believe that our mission (Loving God and loving others in our church, in our community and in our world.) is not just something we do as a result of growing in our relationship with God, but it is also spurs on growth through practice. Thus, using our talents, spiritual gifts and sharing our faith are key elements to growing in our Christian lives.

It is our hope that everyone who calls Parkview home would serve in at least one area of ministry to grow in relationship with Jesus and connect with other people in our church and community. Below are descriptions of each of the areas of ministry that you can serve in. Let us know how you would like to get involved. Whatever interests and strengths you have, you can use them to contribute to what’s happening here at Parkview and in our community.

Please contact the church office or the individuals listed below to become involved and start using your gifts to serve others. There may be an area not listed below that you would like to serve in. You are not limited to the specific roles we have identified. We welcome your new ideas as well.
