At Parkview, we’re here for you and your kids. Our Family Dedications are an opportunity not only for you to come before the church in commitment to your child, but for us as a church to come alongside you as a parent. We want to help you share your faith in a way that causes your child to know and love Jesus, and to grow in understanding of the gift of His love and grace to us. It’s also a wonderful way for our community to meet the families of Parkview, so we can be present in supporting one another!
