First United Methodist Church of Park Ridge
We are a Christian community spreading God’s love and welcoming all, offering spiritual growth and opportunities for compassionate service.
For over 160 years, First United Methodist Church has striven to live out its core values of love, compassion and spiritual growth and is the home of many distinguished past and present Park Ridge residents. Boy Scout Troop #1, the first troop for the Boy Scout organization, was founded in the Church and still uses our facilities today. Avenues To Independence, a local non-profit which assists the developmentally disabled, began in our church in 1953. The Park Ridge Teen Center offered a safe place for the youth of our community for more than 25 years; staffed by volunteers, it was located at the Church.
Our church is active in social issues through hands-on projects in Chicago neighborhoods and work camps throughout the Midwest, on native American reservations and in Appalachia. We support Volunteers in Mission, and for more than 100 years, the current unit of the United Methodist Women and its predecessor groups have joined women throughout the world to advocate for the rights of women and children through participation in the largest women’s mission-giving effort in the world. More recently our church members have been helping support full inclusion of the LGBT community in the life and ministry of the UMC, as well as helping support African missions to Burkina Faso, Tanzania, and Senegal.
We see all persons as created in the image of God and bearing sacred worth and dignity.
We invite all persons to participate fully in the life of our church regardless
of their age, race, ethnic background, sexual orientation, gender identity,
physical or mental condition, marital status, family situation, or economic standing.
