Our Saturday service takes place at 6:30pm in the Auditorium. This is a more casual and contemporary service that includes an extended time of worship following the message.
Sunday Service times in the Auditorium are 9:00 & 10:45am. These services are approximately 75 minutes in length and are energetic, contemporary and varied expressions of faith and worship for families and individuals who have grown up with music and language of our culture. There are also dynamic programs available for children from birth to grade 5 during these times.
There is 30 minutes between each service to allow and encourage time for nurturing relationships with one another over refreshments.
At 10:45am, we also offer a Traditional Service in the Theatre. The emphasis for this service is on a more traditional style of worship music with hymns and liturgical readings. The message is presented via video feed. It is usually about 70 minutes in length as well.
At North Park, we believe that diversity of worship styles and formats are enriching to a community and can be used to draw many different generations into a meaningful connection with Jesus.
We invite you to try one of the different services available at North Park and be truly blessed by the experience.

What’s the Big Idea?
Leafing Through the Parables of Jesus
By Paul McIlwraith, Teaching Pastor
There is nothing so compelling or attractive as a good story. Very seldom do children (or adults) say, “Tell me the facts.” They want a story. Stories by their nature are interesting. Discourse we tolerate, but stories grab our attention – they entertain, inform, motivate, authenticate and draw us in to a world that the author has created.
In the Bible we see that Jesus was a master storyteller. His parables are among some of the best known and most influential stories in history. Even those who have little knowledge or understanding of scripture or Jesus know about his stories or have encountered their impact in expressions like “prodigal” or “good Samaritan.” It is in the parables that the vitality, relevance and applicability of the teachings of Jesus are most evident.
Join us in October 2018 at North Park as we introduce a five-part teaching series on the stories of Jesus entitled: What’s the Big Idea? Leafing through the Parables of Jesus. These appealing stories will challenge and encourage you in the narrative of your life.
