Ellis Avenue Church

Celebrating Diversity and Building Community in Christ

Ellis Avenue ChurchWelcome to our church website.  We are thankful for your visit.  In order to learn more about our congregation we encourage you to click on the links above.

We are a very diverse congregation located in the heart of the Kenwood/Hyde Park neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago.  Our diversity extends beyond race to include significant diversity in terms of economics and education and church background.   Yet, in the midst of this diversity it is a common commitment to follow Jesus Christ in life that serves to unite our congregation.

At Ellis Avenue Church we have a passion for serving God and we express that through our worship, our fellowship together, our ministry to our neighbors and our community, and our efforts to build a faithful and compassionate Christian community.  Thanks again for visiting – we would be honored to have you visit us in person.  God’s peace to you on your journey.

Rev. Jonathan Friesen
