INTERVARSITY AT UCHICAGO

Churches

While we enjoy fellowshipping with our brothers and sisters in InterVarsity, we believe it is important for each believer to be a part of a local church. Here are some Hyde Park and greater Chicago area churches that members of InterVarsity attend.

Christ Church Chicago

Christ Church Chicago is a church committed to seeing the city of Chicago transformed by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Everything at Christ Church revolves around the Word, from traditional and contemporary music which prepares your heart for the Word to the well-prepared exposition of the Word to weekly community groups which discuss the Word. Our church body is multi-ethnic and multi-generational, with about half the congregation being affiliated with the University in some way. We also have weekly University gatherings throughout the year.

Living Hope Church

Living Hope, a congregation of the Presbyterian Church of America (PCA), is a diverse, multi-ethnic community composed of both University members and Woodlawn residents. Its mission is “to proclaim God’s gospel of grace, to unite a redeemed people who share responsibilities and resources, and to pursue restorative justice, serving Chicago in love.” In 2014, the church launched its community development ministry, Hope Works, that seeks to empower those in need of employment and other life issues. Other ministries include youth groups and a variety of bible studies.
