Description of Organization

Church in the Square began as a location of Park Community Church in March 2016. After over two years of gathering on Sundays, meeting in homes through the week and serving our neighbors, the elders of both Park Community Church and Church in the Square sensed God’s call for Church in the Square to become a new and autonomous church. And so on Sunday, September 2, 2018 Church in the Square gathered for the first time.
In this fresh call we desire to remain faithful to our call as a gospel witness for Jesus on the near west side of the city. We want to be a church that preaches the word, applies the word and lives our the word. And we cannot help but consider this call within the context of Logan Square and the near west side of Chicago.
Over the past couple of decades the Northwest side of the city has seen unprecedented change. Issues such as a lack of rent control and systematic prejudice have led to seismic shifts in the ethnic and socioeconomic makeup of the area. Yet, by God's grace, a mosaic of God's image persists in our schools, businesses, families, restaurants and artistic displays.
In this complexity, we believe God has called us to preach, apply and live his Word.
