South Park Church is an interdenominational
church with over eighty years of making disciples of Jesus. Located in Park
Ridge, our church family represents several surrounding suburbs. We long for
God to renew us, the city of Chicago, and the world.
South Park Church exists to help people walk
with God, connect as family, and love people in Jesus’ name.
We dream of a time in the near future when
every one of us is so excited about God’s invitation that we cry out, “Send
me!” This may mean sharing the love of God with a neighbor across the street or
around the world.
We fulfill our mission by:
South Park Church began in the early 1940’s as an outreach to children and an adult Bible study. Early meetings took place in the South Park Fieldhouse where Billy Graham came as a guest preacher. Originally named Park Ridge Gospel Church, the name was changed and today’s property was donated in 1953.
The new sanctuary was constructed during the
1960’s. In the 1970’s, South Park’s Youth Ministry began Son City Youth Group,
where hundreds of high school students gave their lives to Christ.
While outreach has always been a focus at
South Park, during the 1980’s we made several significant partnerships. One of
the most notable is India Rural Evangelical Fellowship who are working to break
the cycle of poverty through education, evangelism, and community engagement.
During the early 2000’s we began our
partnership with Safe Families, an organization that stands in the gap for
at-risk children. Small Groups, Iron Men, and family ministry all experienced
dramatic growth. And extensive renovation was conducted to provide a facility
that can support dynamic ministry for years to come.
God loves to send people on mission to their
neighbors and the nations and He is at work doing just that in our church
today! When we talk about our “Send Me” vision people get excited to share
their stories of hospitality, neighboring, disciple-making, mission trips, and
more. We are dreaming of a time in the near future when every one of us is so
excited about God’s invitation that we cry out “Send me!”
