What we do

Get Involved

At New Community we nurture our community, serve in ministry, and engage in outreach with our neighbors.


We care for our life together through our Wednesday evening Bible study which meets in-person at West Point Baptist Church (3566 S. Cottage Grove Ave.) at 6:30 the first three Wednesdays of each month. There is also an online option. Email Minister Hana Sobeck-Kim for more information.


Our ministry teams ensure we can worship and serve together. Email Amy Calkin to learn about serving with the following teams: hospitality, set up/take down, tech/sound, worship, prayer, children/youth, and mid-week Bible Study.


Our non-profit, New Community Outreach (NCO), leads us in sustainable and strategic outreach alongside our neighbors in Bronzeville. Email Sonia Wang to learn more about serving with NCO.


Your generosity helps us carry out our mission. You can give online or send a check to our Ministry Center: 3627 S. Cottage Grove; Chicago, IL 60653.

Children and Youth

Children are essential participants in the life of our church. They are not the future of the church, they are the church today! Parents and caregivers can expect children’s classes for Pre-K – 5th grade and nursery for the little ones during the sermon portion of the service. On the first Sunday of each month our children remain in the worship service and there will be a children’s message. 6th-12th grade youth participate in a weekly gathering on Sunday evenings at our Ministry Center. Please email Pete Blodgett, Director of Family, Youth, and Children Ministries with any questions for or more information.


At New Community, prayer is behind everything we do. If you’d like prayer, please email us your request or to set-up an appointment with a prayer team member. And on the first Saturday of each month, we meet at Kennicott Park (4434 S. Lake Park Ave.) for a one-hour prayer walk around three local schools.
