Park Community Church – Bridgeport is located in Chicago’s Bridgeport Neighborhood. We are a multi-ethnic church seeking to know Jesus and make Him known throughout the city.
 



Each message series is carefully designed with people just like you in mind: real people looking for real answers to issues they face everyday. At Park, we’re teaching God’s timeless truths from the Bible and showing how the good news of Jesus Christ can transform lives and helps us to live with joy and hope!

We believe it’s what’s inside a person that matters, not the outside. At Park, we feel people should be able to come as they are, and not feel judged. If you dress up or dress down, either way, you’ll find yourself fitting right in with people who genuinely care about you.

Free parking is available in our parking lot and on the street. Click here for directions via public transportation.

Yes! Loop Kids is our ministry for children from birth to 5th grade. Loop Kids teaches the Bible in a fun and engaging way and meets during our 10:30 AM worship gathering.

Small Groups

SMALL GROUPS
At Park our mission is to know God and make Him known! Our small groups are groups of 8 to 10 people who come together to study God’s word and to obey what he commands.  Small groups are often the source of strong friendships and a place where life transformation can take place, as we help each other grow in Christlikeness through grace and truth.

+ Join a Small Group

Every week small groups meet in homes across our neighborhood, including groups for men, women, and intergenerational (open to all seasons of life). To take the first step in joining a small group, email Kensen Lam at klam@parkcommunitychurch.org or fill out this link.
 

Starting Point Group

Join us for Starting Point, the first step to getting connected in a small group at Park. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll meet others looking to get connected at Park, discuss biblical community, and learn about our mission and vision for small groups! There will be opportunities to join an ongoing small group at the conclusion of Starting Point Group. Childcare will be provided. 
 

 
 
Baptism

BAPTISM
Baptism is our outward expression of our inward faith. It is a way of publicly declaring that you are a follower of Christ. If you’ve never been baptized as a believer, come learn more about what Jesus says on this topic. 
 

 
Serve

SERVE
In the Bible, the church is described as a body that is made up of many members.  What that means is that as a Christ-Follower, we have a contribution to give to help others grow in Christ. Join one of our growing teams that help create an environment where people can connect with others, hear the Word of God, and worship Jesus. Begin by filling out this form today, and our team will be in touch soon!

 
 
Give

GIVE
Giving is an act of worship. It recognizes God as the owner and source of all we have. It is our cheerful response to God in praise of His radical generosity towards us.
 

 
Partnership

PARTNERSHIP
“I thank God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus .” – Philippians 1:3-6

Our vision is simple: We exist to be a biblical community where the gospel of Jesus Christ transform lives, renews the city, and impacts the world. We can only accomplish this with through Christ-Followers coming together and linking arms around the gospel. Partnership at Park is more than just attending meetings and gatherings. Partnership (what some churches call Membership) is for those who desire to commit to a spiritual family and the vision here at Park.

We invite you to prayerfully consider partnering with us in this work of God, and we are confident that He will complete the work He has begun in, among, and through each of us.

If you are ready to call Park Community Church your church home, we would love to invite you to attend an upcoming Partnership Class to learn more about our mission, vision, and how you can join our church family and partner with us in the Gospel.

Deacons

DEACONS

Community Engagement

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
At Park we are a church that is IN the neighborhood and FOR the neighborhood. Jesus calls his church to “go” and be salt and light wherever he has placed us to share and live out the good news of Jesus. Some of the ways we do this is by participating in neighborhood events through serving and by being an active presence through our local school by being an encouragement to our students and teachers.

Prayer

PRAYER
Jesus says, “that my house shall be called a house of prayer.”  One of the most distinctive characteristics of a church that puts God first is a church that prays regularly. At Park we practice this in numerous ways. We host weekly prayer times on Sunday’s before our gathering, we do prayer walks throughout our neighborhood, and we pray monthly with other churches for the renewal of our city.
