Get Directions


Park Community Church – Near North is located in the heart of Chicago’s Near North neighborhood. Join us at one of our four weekly gatherings as we seek to know God and make Him known.

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 that speak to where you’re living today in your friends, family, career, and relationship with Jesus. If it’s real life and important for today, you can be sure at Park we’re talking about it.

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.

Small Groups


At Park our mission is to know God and make Him known! Our small groups are designed to equip people to know God by studying the bible, praying together and building community. We make God known as we share and reflect Christ in our workplace, homes and neighborhoods, and as we serve in the church and in our communities throughout the city. Small groups are often the source of strong friendships and a place where life transformation can take place. 

+ Join a Small Group

Interested in joining a Near North small group?  Stop by the Guest Services table before or after a weekend service.  We would love to help you get connected!  

+ Lead a Small Group
A small group leader disciples and shepherds people in their group to know God and to make Him known. We seek leaders who are mature in their faith, demonstrate integrity compassion and show faithfulness, availability, and teachability. If you are interested in leading a small group your first step is to attend small group leader training.



Baptism is the outward expression of our inward faith. It is a way of publicly declaring that you are a follower of Christ.



As followers of Christ we are called to serve, and when we serve – we grow! We want to invite you to use your gifts and 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. There are many roles open to serve at Near North, and we would love to help you use your talents and experiences to lead, care for, and mobilize the church of God. 




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.


Our mission is simple: We exist to know God and to make Him known, and we get to do that together as one body. Membership is more than just attending meetings and gatherings.  Every follower of Jesus is to be part of a local church, and Membership is your next step to commit to our spiritual family and vision here at Park.

We believe God desires to accomplish great things through Park Community Church. Lives change when they come in contact with the grace of Jesus, and life change is happening all around us 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 Membership Class to learn more about our mission, vision, and how you can join our church family and partner with us in the Gospel.






3:12 is a group of young professionals, formerly known as Singles@Park, living to know God and make Him known.

+ Who We Are

In the summer of 2018, a few partners got together and recognized an opportunity for twenty and thirty-somethings to connect and grow in their love for God, and to encourage each other in pursuing a life rooted in Christ.

+ How We Do It

- Worshipping and getting to know God
We gather to learn about and discuss topics relevant to our community and engage the issues the church is facing. We think it's also incredibly important to worship the One who has created and loved us, and pursue a saving relationship with him communally.

- Connecting
It's easy to silo yourself with like-minded individuals in the industry you work in. What's amazing about God's church—let alone 3:12—is the diversity in the backgrounds and professions of its people. Paul talks about this body of believers in 1 Corinthians 12. You never know what growth in knowledge, skills, and opportunities you'll acquire with other Christians by connecting in community.

- Having Fun
We love to have fun as a group! Some events we've done in the past are our Fall Festival, Friendsgiving, trivia and game nights, ski trips, and our annual Christmas Party. The sky's the limit! If you have a suggestion about what you'd like to see us do as a group, please feel free to drop us a line in the form below!

+ Get Involved

The best ways to stay in touch with what's happening with 3:12 are our newsletter and Facebook group.



Don't believe in God? Given up on church? Just curious? Alpha gives everyone the opportunity to ask the tough questions about life and God, in a safe setting. Alpha has ten sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith. Each week is centered around dinner, a short talk, and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts and ask questions. No question is too basic or too big. Try ALPHA without committing to the course by signing up for the next Launch Party, if it looks interesting to you, keep coming.



Throughout life we all face challenging circumstances, relational pain, transitional seasons and financial burdens. How we respond during these times is important to God. If you are struggling, the Care Ministry at Park has people you can turn to during your time of need through different groups, helpful resources, deacons and counselor referrals.

+ Deacons

Deacons provide confidential prayer, compassionate care, one-on-one support, and resourceful connections for the emotional, spiritual, and financial needs of those at Park. No need is too small or too big. Email or call 312-361-0533 anytime. You can also meet with a deacon after one of Park’s gatherings.

+ Counseling Referrals

Do you feel the need to seek counseling for an issue you are dealing with? Each counselor or therapist we recommend has been carefully screened by Park Community Church for his or her professional expertise, quality of care and genuine Christian values. Please email Heather Goodall, Care Ministries Director for a list of referrals.

Welcome to Loop Kids, Park’s ministry to children from birth through 5th grade. At Loop Kids, we have one mission: to see every child come to know God and make Him known.

Is this your first time visiting? Check out our FAQ:




When your child comes to Loop Kids, it is our hope that they have fun, are engaged with age-appropriate and Christ-centered curriculum and worship, and leave feeling known and loved. And as a parent, you can rest easy knowing that your child is safe because we take safety seriously at Loop Kids. Every volunteer that interacts with your child has been interviewed and screened, including personal reference checks, a criminal background check and safety training. We are excited to serve your family and hope that you will join us at our Saturday or Sunday morning services. Visit our website for information about our ministry.


+ Child Dedication

Parenthood is a unique calling from God, and parents have more influence over a child’s spiritual development than anyone else. We believe that your commitment to helping your child follow Jesus is something to celebrate and announce to your church family.

Our mission is to know God and make Him known, and we believe that life is a gift that comes from the awesome God we serve. Child dedication is about you as a parent knowing God and making Him know to your children. It is also an opportunity for our church family to declare our partnership with you and support for your family in your journey to raise a child who loves and follows Jesus one day.


+ Volunteer with Loop Kids

We are always looking for awesome people to add to our volunteer teams! Click here to learn more.

Marriage Ministry at Park focuses on three things:

• Helping couples who are seriously dating and considering engagement. 
• Helping couples who are engaged and preparing for marriage. 
• Helping couples who are married to be strengthened in their relationships. 

+ Should We Tie the Knot?

Should We Tie the Knot? is our one-day pre-engagement seminar for seriously dating couples considering marriage. You will learn biblical principles that you can apply to serious Christian dating and address critical questions that couples must work through before deciding to get engaged. This seminar includes discussion time with your significant other and gender-specific Q&A sessions to help you discern the answer to the question “Is this the one?”


+ Marriage Prep

Wedding ceremonies are wonderful celebrations and it is important to plan for them. But it is far more important to prepare for a lifetime of marriage. The seven-week Marriage Prep course is designed to help couples get off to a great start in marriage with a Christ-centered foundation.

The course meets Sunday afternoons from 3-4:30 PM
at Park Near North Room 205/206.
Cost is $90.



+ Fall Marriage Conference

The Fall Marriage Conference is held each year for married, engaged, and seriously dating couples. It typically falls in late September/early October each year. We invite an outside speaker and host the event here at our Near North location. The conference is open to the general public. It is a two-day (Friday night, Saturday morning) event, and childcare is provided in hopes that many couples have the option to attend. 


+ Winter Marriage Retreat

The Winter Marriage Retreat, held in March at an off-site resort in Lake Geneva, is for married couples in the Park community. It is a great time of focused marriage enrichment away from distraction and serves as a time for couples to connect with other couples in our community.
