Church Planting

One of the things we value as a congregation is gospel outreach. And one of the ways we are committed to doing that is by starting new churches in neighborhoods across the city to make space for the gospel to do its work. Our first church plant started worship services in 2009 in Lincoln Square. We are doing our second church plant, in cooperation with Lincoln Square Presbyterian Church, in the Austin/Oak Park area. For more information, please contact Pastor Jeff Schneider.
