Our Mission
Anchored in Christ, we reach out in love to our community and world through:

We believe the worship of God is the heartbeat of who we are as a congregation: we strive to be a place where God is glorified, where Jesus is Savior and Lord, and where the Holy Spirit is given room to lead and guide.

We believe following Christ involves all that we are: through teaching, study and discipleship we strive to not only think correctly about the most important things but to learn to live the full, abundant life Jesus offers --- to live as we were created to live.

We believe God, through Jesus and the Holy Spirit, is in the process of redeeming and restoring the world: and while that ultimately happens by God’s grace, we have been called to take part by serving the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of the community of Morton Grove, the greater Chicago area, and around the world.


Our History
Morton Grove Community Church was founded on April 1, 1951.  It was one of the earliest of the new churches established when Chicagoans began moving to the suburbs in great numbers. The church was begun as a Presbyterian church with strong inter-denominational and community emphases.  The congregation has enjoyed a membership drawing from over thirty different religious backgrounds.  This diversity, channeled through the representative governing system of the Presbyterian tradition, has resulted in a congregation that is active and informed.
