You are Welcome here!

hero_welcomeWelcome to Epworth United Methodist Church! Here’s some general information to help you get acquainted with Epworth.  Feel free to come as you are – you are welcome in this place!

Our Sunday Worship service begins at 11:00 am. 

We are located at 5253 N. Kenmore Avenue in Chicago, which is in the Edgewater community, north of Foster, west of Sheridan, at the corner of Berwyn and Kenmore.

We hope we have the opportunity to get to know you.  The congregation here is very diverse, representing the surrounding neighborhood.  We are a faith community, devoted to inclusive ministry, learning about Jesus and called to be His followers.  Worship and Service must go hand in hand as we balance our devotion to God and service to the world.  We are committed to social justice and will stand with oppressed.

We are a reconciling congregation, which means that we see all persons as beloved, beautiful children of God regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, social status, physical ability, age, political bent, marital status, housing status, immigrant status, mental state, or any other characteristic that differentiates one from another.  All are beloved by God and so by us!

Parking on Sunday is available at the Seventh Church of Christ Scientist, located at the northwest corner of Berwyn and Kenmore.  Ask an usher for a pass to place in your windshield.

Nursery Care is available for infants during worship, and Sunday School for children is during worship, following the children’s sermon.  Sunday School for adults and youth takes place before worship from 10 am -11 am.

After worship is a time of fellowship in the church parlor, at which snacks and beverages are available as you meet and greet others from the congregation.

Weekday Office Hours:  9 am – 2 pm  Tuesday through Friday.  The Office is closed on Monday.  If you plan to come by, however, it’s best to call first 773-561-6422 to be sure the pastor will be available.
