We are so glad you are thinking about visiting our church. Below is information we hope will answer some common questions and help you navigate our campus.
What type of church is North Park?
North Park is a Bible-teaching, non-denominational, Christian church.
Where and When
North Park Community Church is located at 7160 Flutter Road, Fort Wayne, Indiana 46835 (map). Our Core Courses for Adults/Teens and our Kids' Discipleship Groups meet from 9 to 10 am and our worship service is from 10:30 am to 11:45.
Navigating the Campus
Guest parking and handicapped parking spaces are near each building entry. Greeters will be standing at each door to welcome you to our church and can direct you to the Worship Center or any other locations.
What do I wear?
Because our Sunday morning worship service is aimed at making much of God - what you wear externally to church is of less importance than what you bring internally - namely, a humble heart that desires to worship the Lord and love one another as we grow together in Christ. So please, come as you are and be yourself.
How long has North Park been around?
North Park held its first public service on June 11, 1995, at Shambaugh Elementary School and our first service on our current property (21 acres) was held on June 9, 1996, beneath the trees. Our name “North Park” originated from the desire for a vibrant and refreshing church in a park-like setting on the north side of Fort Wayne. For 26 years, we have been preaching Christ and making disciples.
A Warm Welcome
From young to old, and in whatever stage of life you are in, we want you to feel welcomed and cared about when you visit North Park. Just inside the Worship Center, our hospitality team is happy to answer questions or help you navigate your way around. Look for them at our welcome area.
God-exalting Worship Music
Our worship services usually begin with a welcome, announcements, Scripture reading, and prayer - followed by singing worship songs led by our musical worship leader and other vocalists and musicians. Our worship music is an intentional blend of modern and traditional worship songs and styles.
We believe the Bible is God's Word - true, authoritative, living, active, and transformational. Therefore, our pastors use expository preaching to help listeners understand and apply the central purpose of the text - connecting God's truth to our lives today. Go here to listen to recent sermons.
We believe our church is a family of believers - called to new life and relationship with God and one another. Therefore, guided by God's Word and helped by the Holy Spirit, our desire is to know and serve one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. We want to enjoy real relationships of love, gentleness, respect, honesty, commitment, and support.
Kids are Welcome
Children are always welcome in our corporate worship gatherings (we have nursery available, as well). We love it when parents include their kids in the worship service. And our joy of being together in worship doesn’t decrease when children are fussy or tired. We do not want parents to feel embarrassment or shame because children act like children.
9:00 AM --- During the 9 am Discipleship Groups for adults and teens, parents are welcome to check-in their children, ages 1-4, into our 9am Nursery. This nursery is located in Education Center.
10:30 AM --- During the 10:30 am Worship Service (Worship Center), parents are invited to check-in their young children into one of our two nurseries. We have one 10:30am Nursery for very young children newborn to age 2. And we have another 10:30am Nursery for toddlers, ages 3 to 4. Both nurseries are located in the foyer of the Worship Center.
Kids's Discipleship Group
