    Kids Baptism Celebration
    Sunday, April 29

    SUNDAY, APRIL 29

    In Parkview Kids, we believe that baptism should be treated as a celebration of a child’s decision to make Jesus their Lord and Savior, and we choose to celebrate this decision like a party!

    If your child is ready to take this next step, register below at the campus of your choice.

    As your church family, we would be honored to be a part of this special celebration, as your child publicly declares his or her decision to follow Jesus!

    Parkview Kids
    Birth through 5th grade

    WELCOME TO PARKVIEW KIDS, our ministry that is provided for all children (Birth-5th grade) at every worship service. We believe that children matter to God and that we have a responsibility to help them develop a relationship with Him.

    In each classroom from birth to 5th grade, children will experience age-appropriate teaching and activities that will help them connect with God.

    We especially want you to know that the safety of every child is a top priority. Background checks are run on all volunteers and Parkview Kids is monitored by our security team during the entire service.

    We can't wait to see you and your kids at one of our Parkview campuses in Homer Glen, New Lenox, or Orland Park very soon!

    Baby Dedication Class
    Why dedication?

    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.

    BABY DEDICATION CLASS

    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.
