Who We Are


At FPC we offer an intergenerational Sunday School that begins during the first part of worship and ends when our worship time ends. Our Sunday School curriculum follows the biblical narrative much like our pattern of worship. Most weeks our kiddos are learning the same or similar stories that we are covering in worship so don’t forget to ask them what they are learning!

On the first Sunday of the month we celebrate Communion together in worship and it’s important to us that our kids have a central place at the table! On this Sunday there is no Sunday School, instead our kids will be integrated into our community worship experience and invited to share in communion!

At FPC our regular programming and mission opportunities include:

  • Weekly Luncheon: bring your own brown bag and join us on Thursdays at 12:30pm.
  • God Talk on Tap: a monthly theology conversations at Chicago area bars or pubs.
  • Free monthly concerts on the third Friday of each month that feature Chicago area folk, blues, jazz and pop musicians.
  • Partnering twice monthly with the Night Ministry to feed the homeless population in uptown at the Health Outreach Bus and in Lakeview at the Crib, a shelter for youth and young adults.

At FPC we believe that being a church isn’t about a building, it meansseeking to be God’s hands and voice in the world. As a faith community, ourmission is to create relationships that transform lives. We do this by caring for one another andserving those around us.

‪We also believe that God’s love is bigger than the labels and boxes that often define us, but just to be clear, you are welcome to join us on our journey no matter your age, race, ethnicity,gender, sexual orientation, mental, physical or socio-economic status. We areglad that you are here!

‪We promise that here, all are welcome, accepted, and celebrated as a beloved children of God. We respect and celebrate our differences and delight in the variety of talents and gifts that are revealed in us!

‪Currently, we utilize this historic Norwood Park Metra Station for weekly worship plus monthly music concerts, community events, art shows and preparing monthly meals for The Night Ministry (a Chicago program that feeds the homeless and hungry and provides them with medical care).

We are a transforming community‪, working together to deepen our faith, nurture our spiritual growth and to hear the ways in which God is calling us to be agents of love and justice in the world.
