Plan Your Visit



We love to know you are considering attending one of our Sunday services or special events! Here is where to find the answers to most of your questions.

Join us in-person in the sanctuary. All age children are welcome in worship! We have rocking chairs in the back of the sanctuary and even more open space in the back for coloring, reading, or crawling. We also have a newly renovated family lounge area for nursing, changing diapers, or having some quiet time.

Kids Corner. We have set-up a special area in the back of the sanctuary with books, coloring and activity pages, worship journals, and other activities to help kids engage in worship.

Fellowship time. We meet upstairs in Roy Hall (our gymnasium) for a time of fellowship immediately following our Sunday worship service. Come have a cup of coffee or other refreshment and chat with others. It’s a great way to get to know us in an informal setting! During the summer, we often meet outside on the front lawn for these gatherings.

Sunday Christian Education. After our worship service and brief fellowship time, we hold both adult & children’s education classes throughout the building. You can learn all the specifics right here.

Our Sunday morning worship takes place at 9:30 a.m. in our Sanctuary, followed by a brief fellowship time and then our Christian Education classes for adults and children.
We have a modest-sized parking lot which fits approximately 50 vehicles. Once it is full, there is street parking in the neighborhood around us. Be sure to obey parking restrictions in the area. Evanston is noted for its “efficient” parking enforcement.

Extremely close! We are a two-block walk from the CTA Purple Line’s Dempster stop, and area buses will take you to within a block of our doorstep from all over the region.

We start at 9:30 a.m. and are usually finished by 10:45 a.m. These times can vary, though we almost never go beyond 11 a.m. (which is when our Christian education classes begin).

Our services have a “blended” feel, where traditional liturgy and choral hymns are interspersed with contemporary songs performed by a variety of instrumentalists and singers in our praise band. Every Sunday is a little bit different, with a unique mix of tunes selected to support the message being taught and the scripture being read. Learn more about our worship & music here.

We can be reached by phone at 847/864-1472, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and on Sunday mornings from 9 a.m. to Noon.


We want you to join our Evanston family

We hold membership classes every few months for those interested in exploring what it means to be a member of First Presbyterian Church of Evanston. Those who attend are under no obligation to join… It’s just a great way for anyone to learn who we are, where God has brought us from, and what a greater engagement with our church might look like.
