7 Principles
for Making Marriage Work

Saturday, November 4 | 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Orland Park Campus

Spring is a time of renewal and recharge after the long winter months. Many clean their homes, cars, and work spaces. Have you done any spring cleaning for your marriage?

Join us as we learn the 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work based on the acclaimed culmination of four decades of the research of Dr. John Gottman, made widely available for couples, like you, who long for better relationships. In this class you will learn to:      

  • Deepen your knowledge of one another
  • Build friendship and trust
  • Recognize and respond to bids for emotional connection
  • Be open to influence
  • Understand and work with both solvable and difficult problems
  • Get through gridlocked conflict
  • Create a special "story of us"
  • Maintain your relationship

Congratulate yourself for taking time to begin or continue your journey toward a deep and loving marital relationship.

The cost for this two session class is $40/couple and includes materials.

Discover Parkview
a "next step" event!

Discover Parkview

Sunday, July 30
10:30 - 11:30 am | New Lenox Campus

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, classes, and serving opportunities, both inside and outside the church. (This is also Parkview's membership class.)

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)

Upcoming Dates:

  • Sunday, September 10 | 10:30 - 11:30 am


Baby Dedication Class
Why dedication?

Baby Dedication Class

Christian parents who dedicate a child are making a promise to the Lord to do everything within their power to raise the child in a godly way, praying for the day when he or she makes a personal decision to follow God.

If you are interested in having your child dedicated at Parkview, we would like to invite you to one of our next baby dedication classes!

At this mandatory class led by some of our pastors, we’ll outline what baby dedication means and help you find ways to raise your child in a healthy and spiritually powerful way! Both parents are encouraged to attend this class.

Sunday, September 24 at 9:30 am in the Classroom

If you have previously taken this class and would like to schedule your child(ren)'s ceremony, please email us for dates and more info.
