WEEKEND EXPERIENCE

Saturday Service

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 Services

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.

North Park’s Chinese Ministry meet in the Chapel at 10:45am.

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.

Foundations. Why We Believe What We Believe.

By Paul McIlwraith, Teaching Pastor

Construction began on the CN Tower, the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere, in the winter of 1973. The first step was to remove over 56,000 tons of earth and shale to a depth of over 15 metres. The foundation consisted of 7,000 cubic metres of concrete, 450 tons of rebar and 36 tons of steel cable built to a thickness of 7 metres. All to support a tower jutting out of the ground 550 metres into the sky. It was a massive undertaking but 45 years later, the CN Tower remains solid and sure, a testament to architectural ingenuity.

Foundations are important. A firm foundation provides a stable base for something worthwhile to be constructed. A shaky foundation leads to instability which compromises the overall project. A visit to a certain tourist site in Pisa, Italy demonstrates the havoc that can be caused when a tower is built on a faulty foundation.

In the gospel of Matthew in the Bible, Jesus spoke about foundations. He stated that a life devoted to him and his teachings is akin to building on a firm foundation. The inevitable trials of life can come our way, but we will be able to sustain them when Jesus is our foundation. When he is not, our life is built on an uncertain base and when trials come our way, we will crumble.

This fall in our weekend services at North Park, we are going to explore this concept of foundations a little further. We are going to determine what is core to our Christian faith and what we deem to be imperative at North Park for vibrant, solid growth to occur in our lives as followers of Jesus.
