    This Weekend!
    Fear of Missing Out

    Fear of Missing Out
    Series thru May 26, 2019

    FOMO is a universal human condition. We all experience it at one time or another - the fear of missing out. We're afraid to miss out on the big promotion, the perfect date, the "essential" things that other people have, or the exclusive party where all the cool people are. We want to know, we want to see, and we want to have - everything.
    But the best part of having a relationship with Jesus is that there is no missing out because we're already in. We've got a VIP pass to the party now, and we're guaranteed to be at the most spectacular party of all - the one that will last forever!
    Jesus will take away your FOMO and replace it with peace and contentment. All you have to ask, and then walk with Him.

    Baptism Weekend
    May 4-5, 2019

    May 4-5, 2019 at all services

    We will be baptizing whoever would like to be baptized the weekend of May 4-5 at all locations and all services. If you would like to take this next step and demonstrate your commitment to Jesus, we would love to celebrate with you! (Feel free to bring a towel and change of clothes!)

    If you would like more information about baptism, please review this page and don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions!


    Why Baptism?

    At Parkview, we practice baptism of the repentant believer by immersion in water. We do immersion baptism because that's the way Jesus did it, the New Testament church did it, and we are commanded to do it.

    Jesus told us in the Great Commission to, "go and teach and make disciples and immerse." (Matthew 28:19 - literal Greek translation)

    During immersion baptism, there is nothing magical in the water, and the act of baptism doesn’t save you. However, we do believe it is such an important first act of obedience that we require it for membership.

    Just as baby dedications are a way for parents to show their commitment to raising their children according to God’s Word, baptism is an outward symbol of the internal commitment made by every believer. It is but a symbol of our new life in Jesus Christ.

    Do we believe that you will only get into heaven if you are baptized by immersion? Certainly not!! We just really want to do it the way that Jesus did!

    For more info, you can read BAPTISM: WHY IMMERSION? by Pastor Tim Harlow.

    If God is leading you to be baptized, we would be happy to help you take that step.

    Please consider the following options:

    Baptism During a Worship Service: This is such a blessing for everyone! Baptisms are scheduled during all of the weekend worship services upon request.

    Baptism Following a Worship Service: If you prefer to have a more intimate baptism experience, you can be baptized after one of the weekend services.

    Weeknight Baptism: Occasionally we do baptisms during the week if this better fits your schedule.

    Discover Parkview
    Take a next step!

    Discover Parkview is a one-hour event held regularly at all Parkview campuses where we’ll give you an overview of our story, update you on where God is leading us as His church, and give you an opportunity to ask questions!

    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)

    Rooted Experience
    A life-changing next step

    Saturdays, April 27 to June 29
    9:00 to 11:00 am 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 Saturday mornings, and there are also two additional gatherings (a prayer and serving experience) determined by your group. The final Rooted Celebration will be held at the Orland Park Campus on Saturday, June 29.

    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.

    What is the Rooted Experience?

    How has Rooted changed your relationship with God?

    Why should someone join a Rooted group?

    If by Mark Batterson
    A Study for Men, Women, and Couples

    If by Mark Batterson
    A Study for Men, Women, and Couples

    If is a powerful little word. Some people are stuck in "if only," trudging through lives marked with regret. But God wants us to live lives marked with possibilities, with the "what if" attitude that looks forward to the future with confidence. Why? Because the answer to "If God is for us, who can be against us?" is "No one." God is always on our side. Every day, in every way.

    In this 4-session study, Mark Batterson helps us overcome feelings of guilt, fear, and doubt because in Christ there is no condemnation. Unpacking the promises of Romans 8, he shows us that we are more than conquerors—right now and forever. And because of that, the possibilities for our lives are limitless.

    The cost of this study is $10 for the book.
