Word of Welcome...

Messiah St. Bartholomew is a faithful and joy-filled congregation in the Avalon Park community of Chicago's South Side. At our core we gather:

+to pray, sing, and give thanks to God

+to grow in our faith

+to support others in their times of need

+to share God's grace and love in the world

We are all a work in progress with our own challenges and questions. Together we care for one another and offer support so that we might each become a better and truer version of the person God created us to be. We invite you to come and visit us, and perhaps even, join us on this journey.
