A Typical Service
We understand that visiting an unfamiliar church can be a little scary. Having an idea of what to expect can help. Here are some answers to popular questions about visiting Parkview East Campus on a typical Sunday.
Where do I go once I’m inside the church?
Once you’ve parked and made your way to the front door, you’ll be met by greeters who are ready to direct you if you need help on where to go. Anyone you see with a green “I CAN HELP” badge can also assist you and answer your questions. We also have a “Parkview Connect” table just inside the door where you can get more in-depth questions answered about how to get connected at Parkview and find out what’s happening at the church.
What about my kids?
We have a Child Check-In station located just inside the front doors to the right. Our Check-In Assistants will help you find the right room for your kids and provide security name tags for them.
If you desire to leave your children (36 months and under) in the Nursery, you’ll find it to your right through the doors to the right of the kitchen located in the chapel. The Pre-K Sunday School classroom is down the Faith Academy hallway in the 1st Grade classroom.
We are currently offering a large group Sunday School for grades K-6 on occasion. They meet in the art room directly across from the kitchen. The students are dismissed from worship after the music and lead to the classroom.
Where is the sanctuary?
Once you have walked in the front doors the gym where we have worship is located straight ahead on the left.
What’s your service like?
At the beginning of each service, we begin our time together with music and worship, led by a worship leader and team. The worship style typically includes vocalists, acoustic guitars and simple percussion.
We believe giving is for people who are committed to Parkview Church and don’t expect visitors to give an offering.
Do I need to dress up?
Parkview worship services are a casual dress environment. Come as you would dress any other day.
Do you preach a sermon?
After the music and worship time Pastor Doug Fern delivers a sermon. You will usually have been given an outline to help you follow along, and there are presentations of key points and verses projected on the screens to help as well.
Ready for the Next Step?
We recognize that connecting with a church and establishing meaningful relationships takes effort by both the newcomer and the church family. Here are some ways you can get started.

Community Groups are groups of people that meet together to learn and apply God's Word together, care for one another spiritually and physically, and share a common mission to bless their neighborhood with gospel-motivated words and deeds. Whether you're single, married, have kids, are in school or are empty nesters - no matter what stage of life you're in, Community Groups are for you.
