Our motto is "Continuing the Journey." Come and journey with us! Whoever you are — whatever your age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, economic status, physical ability, religious belief or background or lack thereof — wherever you are on life’s path, you are welcome at our church.

Come and bring your questions: questions about suffering, and injustice; questions about faith, and meaning. We find God in the midst of our questions, and are met with grace. As we gather together, God is with us — challenging us, and blessing us, to live a more abundant life.

We are a community of care and support. We believe in the holiness of all of creation and the power of forgiveness and reconciliation. Through relationships with people in our church, our neighborhood, and the world we seek to be vessels of the peace and justice that mark the ministry of Jesus Christ.

Come and join us for worship, or stop by and visit our congregation and our various programs in and with the Irving Park community. Join us on the journey of faith, as we walk together in the way of the Lord.

Greetings from Pastor Erin Bouman
Pastor Erin Bouman I'm a Midwestern Lutheran with a love for the wider world. After college in Minnesota I worked in New York City, first for an international relief and development organization and then at a church based soup kitchen and food pantry. Then my husband and I moved to Tanzania, where we served as elementary school teachers for four years, and had two children of our own. I received my Masters of Divinity from the University of Chicago, and my first call was in the south suburbs. I love to read, run, cook, sing, and talk about big questions. Worship with us and introduce yourself to me, or email me at
