    Discover Parkview
    Take a next step!

    Discover Parkview is a one-hour event held regularly at all Parkview campuses where you can get to know us a little better, and we can get to know you!

    At Discover Parkview, we’ll give you a snapshot of our story, and update you on where God is leading us as His church. We’ll also talk about ways that you can grow and get connected at your own pace through a variety of next steps, such as baptism, small groups, and serving opportunities, both inside and outside the church.

    Whether you’re new to Parkview or have been around for a while, Discover Parkview will help you take a next step in living the full life that Jesus has for you! (John 10:10)

    Designing Your Legacy
    Saturday, October 27

    Saturday, October 27
    10:00 to 11:00 am
    Orland Park Campus

    Learn from experts how to establish your living trust. No pressure! No commitments! No cost!


    • Pass on your values. Preparing for the future reflects good stewardship and protects the things that mean the most to you.
    • Save yourself and your beneficiaries time and money. Establishing a living trust may lower your estate taxes and will eliminate probate. On average, this saves your loved ones 9 months to 2 years and $16,000 to $60,000 in probate alone.
    • Have peace of mind. In your legacy plan, you can ensure your desires on medical decisions, guardianship of your minor children, and distribution of your valuables will be fulfilled. Your instructions are legally binding and guaranteed to be followed.

    FINANCIAL PLANNING MINISTRY provides estate planning services, including the creation of wills and trusts. Serving the Christian Community for over 25 years, FPM provides stewardship and estate planning seminars and assists individuals in the creation of their personal Estate Plan.

    Women's Study
    September 25 - November 15


    by Jennie Allen

    Too many of us walk through life feeling as if we don’t measure up. We always seem to thirst for more. We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. But the truth is, we will never be enough. And thankfully, we don’t have to be.

    In this 8-session study, Jennie Allen walks through key passages in the Book of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don’t have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything. 

    The cost for this study is $15.

    Serve the Church
    Find your fit at Parkview!

    We all know what it’s like to struggle through the day with a painfully uncomfortable pair of shoes, or those jeans that are now skinny jeans but they weren’t the last time you had them on! When things don’t fit right it affects our self-confidence and our focus.

    The very same thing can be true about your role in the church. For those who are part of the family, we should all be doing our part. And Parkview has all kinds of opportunities for people to volunteer. But not just any spot will do. We want you to find the place that feels like that comfortable, broken-in pair of shoes that you don’t even notice you’re wearing.

    You have been uniquely and wonderfully made, and we want nothing more than to help you FIND YOUR FIT!

    To get started, please fill out the form for your campus and we'll be in touch!

    Rooted Experience
    A life-changing next step

    Mondays, September 10 to November 12
    6:30 to 8:30 pm at all campuses

    More than a program, seminar, or small group, Rooted is a catalyst for life change - inspiring questions, conversations, connections, and experiences where you will see and hear from God in new and surprising ways.

    During this session, Rooted groups meet for ten weeks at all campuses on Monday evenings, and there are also two additional gatherings (a prayer and serving experience) determined by your group. The final Rooted Celebration Dinner will be held at the Orland Park Campus on Friday, November 16 at 6:30 pm.

    The cost for Rooted is $50/person, which covers the cost of participant materials, facilitator resources, and the celebration dinner. Childcare is available for children from birth through 5th grade ($50/child for the ten weeks). Please don’t sign up for Rooted if you know you will miss more than two meetings.

    Registration is now closed for all campuses. Please add your name to the waitlist to be notified when registration opens for the next session!


    ROOTED FOR STUDENTS: Jr. High & High School Students, we have Rooted groups available for you!

    Fall 2018 Student Registration is now closed.

    What is the Rooted Experience?

    How has Rooted changed your relationship with God?

    1,000,000 Chapters
    Bible Reading Plan

    There is nothing that equips or invites God's people to live like Jesus more than reading the Bible. The Bible captures God’s story, and it leads those of us who dare to read it to live out His story in our own lives every day.

    That’s why Parkview is making the challenge to our church to collectively read 1,000,000 chapters of the Bible together this year using YouVersion's Bible App. 

    Will you join us on the journey?

    Participate in the 1,000,000 Chapters Challenge

    In order for us to track Parkview's progress during the 1,000,000 Chapters challenge, you need to participate using the Bible App on your mobile device(s).

    • Download the Bible App from Google Play or the Apple Store and search for Parkview or 1,000,000 Chapters.
    • For those who can only participate on a computer, here is a link to the 1,000,000 Chapters Plan.
    • Have you been doing your own Bible reading plan? Report your chapters by filling out this form!

    We'll update our church's progress on this page throughout the year!
