The Chicago Coalition of Welcoming Churches is a collaboration of more than 80 churches and other ministries in the Chicago metropolitan area which welcome and affirm people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We have two goals:

  • To spread the message of our members' LGBTQ-inclusion across the Chicago metropolitan area, mindful that a positive message about sexual and family diversity is a gift to all people.
  • To connect the leaders, members, and guests of our partner churches for fellowship and education, enabling support and resource-sharing for the practices of faithful welcome.

Other Information

Irving Park United Methodist Church seeks through worship and witness to create a Christian community that affirms the worth of all humanity. Our worship life is centered in the Word and Sacraments and in a creative celebration of our faith. The congregation provides through education for all ages the opportunity to increase and share a greater understanding of the faith, in order that we might grow in grace and in practice. This Reconciling Congregation witnesses to the neighborhood and the world through a variety of ministries and services. Love and fellowship are at the heart of these ministries. As grace is the gift, service is the task which unites us in our mission.

You're Invited

You're invited to worship with us on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. You will hear a challenging, caring, Biblically-based message, some great music, make friends with your neighbors, and perhaps be touched and claimed by God. There is always a special time for children in worship that tells of a loving God. Nursery care is provided. Children leave partway through the service for activities that will engage them on the same worship themes as in the remainder of the service.

You're Welcome Here

Irving Park United Methodist Church welcomes all persons. "We are one body in Christ Jesus" without regard to age, class, gender or orientation, race, or economic status. Diversity is not a problem -- diversity is a wonderful gift of God! We actively welcome and encourage diversity as a gift to be gratefully, respectfully and joyfully received. Whoever you are, you are welcome here.
