    This Weekend!
    November 17 & 18

    November 17 & 18
    From our limited, human perspective, God’s generosity seems almost absurd. We have so much to be grateful for, but it’s fair to ask if we are really living lives of gratitude.

    Are we really grateful, or do we need a gratitude adjustment?

    Pastor Tim will talk about it as we get ready for Thanksgiving this year!

    This Thanksgiving season, we invite you to join us in 21 Days of Gratitude!

    For 21 days starting Thursday, November 1, we’ll post a short video on Facebook and right here on the website from Parkview’s staff sharing something they’re thankful for. We will also give you a passage of scripture to read while you reflect on what you are personally grateful for.

    This is a great way to prepare not only for Thanksgiving but also for continuing to be grateful to God every day after!

    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!

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.

    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, January 21 to March 25
    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, March 29 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.

    What is the Rooted Experience?

    How has Rooted changed your relationship with God?

    Why should someone join a Rooted group?

    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

    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!
