Here at Parkview we strive to be real. Real people, we have real problems, real struggles, real hurts and pains. We are a group of people who often fall short of where God wants us to be. Does that make us hypocrites? Absolutely! We are guilty by not being perfect. We truly lean on Christ for everything, it is in Christ we find hope, peace, love, and salvation. The Bible says, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) As Christians we live to serve Christ, we can serve in many ways and we believe that God has gifted each individual with abilities to bring glory to His name through us.
We are a church filled with people who love other people. We enjoy the presence of new people while also continuing relationships with people we've know for years. We have a great blend of ages throughout our Church from little children to the more numerically mature. We have thriving children's and youth ministries. We also have a strong group of young adults who enjoy just hanging out in and out of church hours. We have a Bible studies for all ages on Sundays (morning and evening) and Wednesday evenings. We have monthly church meals, and other events for people to enjoy.
We here at Parkview love God and love people. We would love to see you as well.

Youth Ministers Message
John Westerhoff writes, “Recall the question asked in the Gospel according to St. Luke: ‘When the Son of Man comes will he find faith on earth?’(Luke 8:8). Surely he will find religion (institutions, creeds, documents, artifacts, and the like, but he may not find faith. Faith is deeply personal, dynamic, ultimate. Religion, however, is faith’s expression . . . Religion is important, but not ultimately important. Educationally, religion is a means, not an end; faith is the only end.”
Above all else, faith matters. Why? Because it is faith that saves us (Eph. 2:8). Because it is only through faith that one can please God (Heb. 11:6). Because it is through faith that one overcomes the world (I John 5:4-5). Does this mean that religion is irrelevant? Of course not! Westerhoff remarks that religion offers us knowledge of the Scriptures, teaches us to interpret the Scriptures, helps us make moral decisions, and aids us in thinking about life theologically. Every religious undertaking of ours should be done to form, strengthen, and increase faith. And this is the goal and purpose of the children’s and youth ministries at Parkview Christian Church.
Parkview’s Youth Minister, Joseph Woods
I believe that Paul’s “family” and “body” metaphors concerning the church are not coincidental; rather, they express exactly the way in which Paul believes the church should function. And, although faith is “deeply personal”, it is strengthened in community. Our hope is that all members of Parkview will take an active interest in coming alongside our students and their parents and help in the training of new disciples. We are not striving to raise up successful young men and women, instead we strive to raise up faithful young men and women.
