Adult Communities

Adult Communities are a next step for those who want to be involved, known, and loved within the Parkview Church.

Adult Community classes are groups of 15 to 60 members who meet together on a weekly basis. The size of these groups makes teaching effective and relationships easy to form. Try one out and see why an Adult Community can be a great step for your spiritual journey!

Support Groups

All of us experience periods of difficulties, hardship, or even despair in our lives.

Many of us find ourselves in a place or situation that we did not intend. But we don’t have to walk through those times alone. If you need help getting back on track or just need someone who understands what you’re facing, you’ll find it in our Caring Ministries. You don’t need to be a member of Parkview to attend.


Cancer Care

According to the National Cancer Institute approximately 1,334,000 new cancer cases are diagnosed each year.

If you know someone – a family member or friend – or if you are in the middle of the storm, we invite you to “There Is Hope”, Parkview’s Cancer Support Group. Our ministry is caring, inspirational and educational. We offer emotional support, friendship, prayer, discussion and confidentiality.

Men

Men’s Ministries at Parkview are designed to train and encourage men to actively live out their faith in all circumstances of their lives.

As men, we play many important roles; husbands, fathers, providers, spiritual leaders of our homes, and workers. We want to see more and more of our men make a spiritual impact in their families, communities, and beyond as they take the Gospel into their world, making disciples who also make disciples and all for the glory of God.
