Irving Park United Methodist Church is a reconciling congregation, which means we welcome people of every age, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, religious background, and physical ability. When we gather, we celebrate this diversity as a fuller expression of who God is.
A service of Worship and Holy Communion: 11:00 a.m. Corner of Grace and Keeler in Old Irving Park. 3801 N. Keeler Avenue, Chicago, 60641. We enjoy Fellowship with refreshments (including hot coffee and sweets) after worship. See the Upcoming Events section of this site for details about what’s happening on Sundays and other times during the week.
Children are an important part of our worshipping community. We have a children’s time as a part of our service and a welcoming play area to enable children to move around in the sanctuary. Creative toys, crayons and coloring pages are available. A rocking chair is located in the back, in case that is helpful. Children are welcome to participate in worship in whatever way they choose, including as wandering angels.
Growing in Grace is a new program for our young Christians. Starting October 6, we meet after worship on the first and third Sundays of the month. Designed for preschool to 5th graders to interact creatively with Bible stories, this runs about 30 minutes and provides the opportunity for parents and other adults to interact with our children in ways that help them connect with our faith. More information is available in the Youth section of this site.
Bible Study meets the hour before worship on Sundays (10-10:45 a.m.). Led by David Foster, the group gathers in a Sunday School room on the Fellowship Hall level of the church. Come down the Keeler entrance stairs to the lower level and you should hear the discussion. No knowledge of the bible required. And no homework assignments. Just come prepared to voice your opinions openly about how our lives and the words of the bible connect today! Contact David directly if you are interested in knowing more about this group that has been gathering for over 30 years! email@example.com
