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.

Mother’s Day Out
Serving moms and kids!

Our main objectives are to:
- minister to mothers, allowing them time for personal activities.

- provide a safe environment for growth; intellectual, creative, social, musical, and spiritual.
- share Christian beliefs and cultural values through stories, songs, pledges, and prayers.
All children are uniquely created in the image of God. In belief of this philosophy, we support a developmentally appropriate setting that emphasizes Christian principles and encourages the physical, social, mental, and spiritual needs of each child. Our goals are consistent with the following three principles:
REACH ~ We welcome all children of the community regardless of race, creed, socioeconomic status, physical or spiritual limitations.
RAISE~ We intend to raise children in a program that offers a well-rounded biblical environment. We also foster positive self-esteem and values through fun learning experiences.
RELEASE ~ We plan to release our children into the community with the spiritual, socio-emotional, and educational values they will need to be prepared for life.
Children 2 or 3 years of age on September 1st are welcome, and they do not need to be potty trained.
