Worship live on Sundays in person at 10: 00 am, or on YouTube at noon.
Everyone is invited!

We are currently on our summer schedule for worship! From Memorial Day through Labor Day, Ravenswood Covenant holds Sunday worship services at 10:00 am, and there is no Sunday School. After Labor Day, we return to our normal school-year schedule, which is a 10:00 Sunday School hour (including Faith Forum, our adult Sunday School class) followed by the worship service at
11:00 am.

Ravenswood Evangelical Covenant Church has been actively serving our neighborhood since 1887.  We are a welcoming, intergenerational, and diverse congregation that proclaims, responds to, and shares God’s Good News to each other, our community, and the world.

Get ready for the new Ravenswood Community Farmers Market! The new market is a collaboration of vendors, local businesses, residents, and Ravenswood Evangelical Covenant Church. The market is open every Wednesday from 4 pm – 8 pm in the church parking lot, and runs from May to the middle of October. This year’s market will feature food-only vendors with a focus on ready-to-eat food on site. The church will have lots of kids activities throughout the season, including the bouncy house, science activities, and water games. Bryan Harrell will be back as our host, with a variety of music and entertainment. Patyk Farms, Hilary’s Cookies, and Tamales Express are among the returning vendors. For more information, check out the Ravenswood Community Farmers Market page on Facebook. Come join us at the market! 

Gregory Sager, our church administrator and one of our Bible teachers at Ravenswood Covenant, leads a Thursday night Bible study that will begin studying the Book of Ecclesiastes this week. The Bible study meets every Thursday at 7:00 pm. For more information, please contact Gregory Sager in the church office at office@ravenscov.org or at 773-784-7091.

We have three other churches that share our building. Chicago Zomi Bethel Church began worshiping in our space in March 2022. CZBC is a small congregation consisting of immigrants from the Asian nation of Myanmar. CZBC meets in the older (sanctuary) half of our building at 3 pm every Sunday. In June 2022, Lakeview Seventh-Day Adventist Church began worshiping in our building on Saturdays at 8 am. Lakeview SDA is a Spanish-speaking church that formerly worshiped in the building of the now-closed Immanuel Evangelical Covenant Church, across Foster Avenue from Swedish Hospital. And this past fall we were joined by our Spanish-speaking sister church within the Evangelical Covenant denomination, Iglesia del Pacto Evangelico Gracias, which formerly worshiped in the Grace Covenant Church building at the corner of Monticello and Belle Plaine, but now worships in our space at 12:30 pm every Sunday.

Be sure to greet and welcome our Christian brothers and sisters from these other churches if you meet them!

Our Mission Statement: Ravenswood Evangelical Covenant Church exists to love and worship God, and love and care for others. By God’s grace, we commit to help people find and follow Jesus Christ through the guidance of his Spirit and his word.
(Adopted March 8, 2006.)

Our Denomination: The Evangelical Covenant Church:
Ravenswood Evangelical Covenant Church is part of the Evangelical Covenant Church, a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace, and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith in Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.

The Evangelical Covenant Church is:

  • Evangelical, but not exclusive
  • Biblical, but not doctrinaire
  • Traditional, but not rigid
  • Congregational, but not independent

The ECC is a non-creedal church built around key evangelical, reformation, Protestant principles such as being biblical, relational, devotional, and missional. These four aspects of our ecclesiology are represented in the Covenant Church logo. 

Our denomination also holds to six core affirmations that unite us across our diversity: Centrality of the Word of God, Necessity of New Birth, the Whole Mission to the Whole Church, the Fellowship of Believers, Reliance on the Holy Spirit, and Freedom in Christ.

"With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade." (Mark 4:30-32 NRS)
