About us links

On the corner of a quiet, residential street, you will find The South Church

The South Church is a friendly church on a quiet street in Mount Prospect, Illinois. Inside you will find a community of people who are open, inclusive and affirming of all persons.

Join us for Worship every Sunday at 9:30 a.m.

Here's what you can expect at The South Church:
A community of faith where people can express and explore their theological differences in a safe and supportive environment.

A place that is committed to the mission of caring for others. As St.Francis of Assisi is reported to have said, "Preach the gospel at all times. If necessary, use words!" At The South Church, we try to not only talk the talk, but walk the walk. (more...)

A place where traditional and contemporary music blend. For example, our choir sings on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month, The South Church Combo performs on 2nd Sundays, and soloists and instrumentalists provide music on 4th Sundays. On "5th Sundays," Rev. Rick Kesler offers a unique worship experience. Which is usually a combination of music, theater and dance.(more...)

An open communion celebration on the first Sunday of every month...all are invited to participate.

Every First Sunday we bring canned goods, boxed foodstuffs, and household items to the church for donation to local food pantries.  Donations can be made at any time and placed in the baskets in the narthex or next to the church office. Foods that are high in protein, such as canned meat and fish, are especially needed.

On wedding days the marquis in front of our church announces the happy event! On other days messages are thought-provoking, funny or whimsical...

Actions Speak Louder Than Sign Boards!
Get involved...the world is run by those who show up!
It is better to fund education than prisons.
Peace begins when the hungry are fed.
There is no god higher than truth.
What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?
It is our choices that show what we truly are
—Albus Dumbledore
