Mens bible study

Men's Wednesday Morning Bible Study

September 6th - December 13th, 2017

Wednesday mornings starting September 6 9:30-10:30am

The Men’s Bible Study at North Park has been a vibrant, consistent ministry for a number of years. This group of men have met to discuss scripture (and drink coffee!) for a number of years and we are grateful for the friendship and ministry that has been cultivated there.

This fall, the Men’s Bible Study will be tracking along with The Story. This group will offer dynamic teaching following the Story video based teaching accompanied by great coffee and discussion.

If you are looking for a way to connect with other men and learn more about the grand narrative of scripture, this will be a group that you will want to check out!

*The Story Bible is a great tool for this elective! Pick one up today for $10 at the Main Office or the Welcome kiosk.

GriefShare

September 11th - December 18th, 2017

$25

This 13 week elective features biblical, Christ-centred teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories. This is followed by a small group discussion about what was viewed. Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. You will find encouragement, comfort and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, or other family member or friend. No matter what the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. The $25 registration fee is for the workbook.

Alpha

Alpha @ Gowan's Residence

September 26th - December 5th, 2017

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith. Alpha is a series of gatherings that encourages people to freely explore the basics of the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view. Great time to think and talk about the big questions of life; about faith and reason and God and meaning. Each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation in a safe place. No pressure. No follow up. No charge.

Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes, businesses—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

This home based Alpha will create a warm and welcoming atmosphere! We are looking forward to discussing questions of life and faith at this awesome Alpha location!

Ladies Thursday Morning Bible Study - The Story

November 23rd - November 30th, 2017

“The Story” - The Bible as One Continuning Story of God and His People

“The Greatest Story Ever Told” is more than just a cliché. God has gone to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story is all about: the story of the Bible, God’s great love affair with humanity. This weekly study group will track alongside the weekend preaching of the Story and will provide deep insight and practical application to each of the weekly themes. This is a great opportunity to go deeper with the Story!

Facilitated by Joyce Perry: Joyce is a former high school teacher, stay-at-home mom and she recently retired as an Academic Counsellor from Western University. Joyce has been been attending North Park for almost 17 years and is married to Rob.

Ladies Thursday Afternoon Bible Study - The Story

November 23rd - November 30th, 2017

“The Story” for Women

The Story details both God’s unfolding plan, His “Upper Story”, and how he uses people in accomplishing His plan, referred to as His “lower story”.

All throughout “The Story”, God uses amazing women of faith to help further His plan and purposes for human history. This elective will focus on the lives of many of those women in order to encourage women today to be eager and willing to be involved in a fresh revelation of God’s plan in these days!

DivorceCare

November 23rd - December 14th, 2017

$25

Separation and divorce are among life’s most difficult and painful experiences, and a marriage breakdown brings with it a wealth of hurt, confusion, loneliness, and grief. But there is hope! DivorceCare is a group elective that is led by those who have been through it, and know first hand both the pain and challenge that separation and divorce bring, as well as the hope and joy that can be found, even in the midst of such a painful season. This 13 week elective is hosted at North Park twice per year, and provides participants with a “support team” as they deal with the issues surrounding their separation or divorce. The study videos feature comments from top experts on divorce and recovery topics. Each week also provides opportunities to share, and to receive prayer for the challenges ahead.

Surviving the Holidays-DivorceCare

November 23rd, 2017

$10

DivorceCare-November 23

For those going through separation and divorce, the holidays can be a painful time. Traditions that were once such a special part of the Christmas season may no longer be possible, or can’t be experienced with the same sense of joy.

For those going through a separation or divorce, the Christmas season may be difficult to navigate this year, but it can truly be a time of hope for you. There are steps that you can take to prepare and plan for Christmas this year that will help make the holiday season a little less painful, and you may even find your way to some moments of true joy and peace.

This seminar will feature a teaching video with practical suggestions, encouragement, and stories of hope, and each seminar will be led by those who have been there and understand what you are going through.

Cost: $10 for Surviving the Holidays Booklet

Habits of grace  spiritiual rhythms

Habits of Grace

November 26th, 2017

Three seemingly unremarkable principles shape and strengthen the Christian life: listening to God’s voice, speaking to him in prayer, and joining together with his people as the church.

Though seemingly normal and routine, the everyday “habits of grace” we cultivate give us access to these God-designed channels through which his love and power flow — including the greatest joy of all: knowing and enjoying Jesus. Join us as we work through the book, “Habits of Grace”, as we learn some of the basic spiritual rhythms that lead to a healthy, vibrant journey with Christ. This is an elective that has value for someone new to faith or those who may be looking to reinvigorate their Christian experience.

Facilitated by Shane Simms.

Shane serves on the North Park pastoral team as the Pastor of Adult Discipleship. One of his passions is helping people to make their faith practical on a daily basis.

Maintaining a spiritual foundation

Maintaining a Spiritual Foundation...Even in Crisis

November 26th, 2017

Sunday November 26, 7:00pm

Life has a way of battering the foundations of our spiritual life, and when crises hit we come under even greater assault. Phil and Merillee Henderson are learning daily about how to stand strong under the pressures of living on mission. Their work with Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) in Chad puts them in both cross cultural as well as challenging circumstances that push them to new places of learning and seeking God for the strength to endure.

Raising three kids, trying to love your neighbour…and seeking to help the marginalized….their story is a beautiful one that everyone can relate to. As a Pilot in Chad, Phil and the MAF team have faced some pretty extraordinary challenges in the past eighteen months; their story of survival will inspire you and have you in tears at the same time.

This is a Global 3.0 Conversation. These conversations are designed to explore vital global issues for North Park’s future.

moms is geared to women of “all ages and phases”.

The Study Safe House: How Emotional Safety is the Key to Raising Kids Who Live, Love & Lead Well You don’t need to do all the “right” things as a parent. Both science and the Bible show us that the most important thing we can provide for our kids is a place of emotional safety. In other words, the posture from which we parent matters infinitely more than the techniques of parenting. Emotional safety—more than any other factor—is scientifically linked to raising kids who live, love, and lead well. Through this study, moms will learn how to use emotional safety as a foundation from which they parent—and make a cultural impact that could change the world!
