Our Mission Partners
“The mission field is wherever faith meets unbelief, wherever the kingdom of God in a believer’s life encounters the kingdom of the world.”
– Hugh Palmer, Rector of All Souls, London
The FPCE Mission Statement says: “First Presbyterian Church of Evanston exists to know Christ and to grow in him as we serve and make disciples in Evanston, the Chicago area, and around the world.” We embrace the full meaning of that through the following mission partners, as well as those we support who choose to remain anonymous:
Sister Church and Area Ministries
FPCE has a longstanding relationship with these two partners, in person, by skype into our adult ed classes through events including movie nights where we feature DAK films. These partners challenge us to consider scripture through a middle Eastern lens, and through the lens of justice/mercy in both the Old and New Testaments.
2019 provided FPCE the opportunity to travel to the Holy Land and visit these ministries. The hope is to establish an every three-year visit for larger groups. Individuals who visit the Holy Land and are introduced /connected to our partners. And potentially there will be exchange visits there that are smaller.
