    Planting Seeds
    Thursday, January 30 

    Thursday, January 30 | 7:00 pm | Orland Park Campus
    For Parents, grandparents, or anyone in the life of a child in the early years

    We want our kids to grow deep roots in Jesus and that starts with the simple seeds we plant every day.

    Join us for an evening of fun as we come together and talk about what it looks like to instill faith in the hearts of our little ones. We hope you walk away from this event with tangible tools that you can use the very next day, along with resources to help you along the journey. Plus, did we mention coffee and desserts?

    Parenting littles is hard - and we don’t think anyone should have to do it alone!  

    This is an adults-only event as we want our Parkview Kids volunteers to be able to participate. Thank you for your understanding!

    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!

    Also, please feel free to check out our upcoming Kids Events and the answers to our FAQS before a first-time visit.

    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.
