A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
– John 13:34-35
Every age and stage of life holds its own unique joys and challenges, and at North Park, we are committed to coming alongside one another through every season. We believe that God can uniquely use our life experiences, including our most painful moments, to deepen our connection to Him, and to one another. Care for each other happens best when we are embedded in a community, and that is why we encourage you to get connected through small groups, community groups, studies, electives, and serving opportunities at North Park. But we also recognize that there are certain times when more help is needed. That is why we also have a variety of specialized care opportunities, including prayer, one-on-one support, care electives, support groups, seminars, conferences, and more. Whatever your circumstances, whatever challenges you are facing, know that you are not alone. You are not alone, not only because our care team is here to come alongside and offer encouragement, comfort, and hope for the season ahead, but also because God promises that He is near to the broken hearted (Psalm 34:18) and will never leave you or forsake you ( Hebrews 13:5).
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
