About Wicker Park Lutheran Church

WPLC is a diverse and rapidly-growing Christian (ELCA) community focused on expansive theology. The congregation comprises most age groups, people from a variety of life stages, as well as many ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Every Sunday at 10 a.m. we gather together to worship; our services feature traditional liturgy and sermons that have been described as both deep and accessible. During in-person Sunday service, we offer Sunday school for school-aged children and a staffed nursery. While gathering virtually, we offer monthly digital Sunday school.

Community service is an ongoing focus, and every month we help feed the homeless and needy alongside The Night Ministry’s Health Outreach Bus. Our commitment to ecotheology is lived out in many ways, including through our worm composting bins and solar panels. We engage in a variety of small group ministries including “Meet & Eat” dinner groups, Hands-on Bread Making, a book club, our Antiracism Committee for Transformation (ACT) team, and a parent’s group.

Our sanctuary is open for weddings and baptisms regardless of membership status. We view our building as an extension of our ministry and are delighted to partner with many community groups.

WPLC is “Reconciling in Christ” and an “Immigrant Welcoming Congregation” that welcomes, supports, and affirms all people with all types of religious pasts, genders or gender identities, sexual orientations, marital statuses, races, countries of birth, socioeconomic or employment statuses, physical abilities, political beliefs, immigration statuses, home addresses, medical or psychological histories. 

We’re excited about all that is happening here, and you could be an integral part of our community! Learn more about our open positions above and apply today.
