We are the voice of Chicago’s NWS and we stand in solidarity with black and brown folks and those most affected by racism. We live and work and are creating community on Chicago’s Northwest Side and we are committed to the transformation of our neighborhoods into antiracist, authentically diverse communities where everyone who lives, works or visits our neighborhoods will experience a sense of compassion, welcome and equity.
Friendship Presbyterian Church joins NFAH, an independent group of Northwest Side neighbors, to work towards making our community more accessible, inclusive, vibrant, and compassionate.
The Chicago Coalition of Welcoming Churches is a collaboration of churches and other ministries in the Chicago metropolitan area which welcome and affirm people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
We are individual members and congregations of the Presbyterian Church (USA) who are faithful to God’s call and believe that God continues to open new understandings of scripture and the Word in the life of Christ. As a Christian community, we believe that the church must seek to live out those understandings in our life together. Our work is supported by an elected board of lay and ordained persons and full-time staff.
When launched, Friendship Community Place will provide engaging and creative space that fosters community, creativity and compassion in Chicago’s Northwest neighborhoods through a co – working space and a community event space.
We are seeking to create a just and sustainable space where Friendship Presbyterian Church will co-locate and collaborate with Chicago Not-For-Proﬁts with shared goals of fostering compassion, caring for our neighbors, supporting affordable housing and working to combat hunger and homeless in Chicago.
