The South Church of Mount Prospect has been a "community church" from it's founding nearly 75 years ago. What does it mean to be a "community church"? For The South Church, it means more than providing worship service. It also means supporting community businesses, projects and events - such as the Historical Society annual House Walk. It means opening its doors for meetings, workshops and the many other events important to members of our community.

We have been the weekly meeting sites for Cub and Boy Scouts, Brownies and Girl Scouts and various businesses. Besides weddings, we have had quilting classes, violin lessons, Italian school, birthday and anniversary parties, wedding rehearsal dinners, square dances and Yoga classes held here, just to name a few. In addition, we are the worship site for two churches besides ours, who hold weekly worship services in The South Church Chapel, and a Montesouri School.


Myanmar Christian Church of Metro Chicago

We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA. We come from Burma. Some arrived in the 1990s and some arrived after 2000. Our mission is to reach out to our fellow Burmese people as well as our neighbors. We have worship service at 5:30 p.m. every Sunday, followed by a fellowship potluck dinner. We often celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and combined worship services with other Burmese ethnic churches around the Chicago area. Sometimes we gather at member's houses for special occasions. - Biak H. Mang, Pastor

Montessori School

Montessori Schoolhouse introduces children to the joy of learning at an early age. We provide a framework in which individual and social discipline go hand in hand. Each child has his own intelligence, emotional integrity, independence, and character. Montessori Schoolhouse is a place that seeks to serve these special qualities so that the child can meet his greatest potential. - Lucy Emerle, Executive Director
