Hey There!

BORED BY CHRISTIANITY IN THE PAST? BURNED BY IT? BRAND NEW TO THE WHOLE GOD THING?

Our ministry isn’t perfect. But we’re striving to create a relevant, honest, and truly INCLUSIVE Christian community at UIC.

No matter who you are – LGBTQ and Straight, Liberal and Conservative, Seeker and Skeptic, Freshman and Grad Students and Young Adults – all are welcome and loved here.

COMMUNITY GROUPS

We gather to create community, talk about all sorts of spiritual things, explore the Bible, and pray together. Bring your doubts, beliefs, questions, and all of who you are. New folks are welcome to join this community group anytime; we love new people (and old people).

BIBLE EXPLORATION GROUP

We dig deep into the Bible, ask hard questions about it, and wrestle with its sacred stories.

POST-WORSHIP CONVO GROUP

We worship together at Urban Village Church in Wicker Park at 11:15 AM and then gather for discussion in the lobby after the service.

SOUTH-LOOP COMMUNITY TABLE

Starting January 13 and meeting every Sunday through May, we eat a delicious meal with our unhoused friends in the South Loop. Come prepared to be flexible and help where needed. You may chop lettuce, mix tea, or simply eat a tasty meal and enjoy good conversation. We strive to create community and tear down walls through sharing delicious food.
