Who We Are

At Ravenswood UCC we are,

Making God’s Love Visible!

by raising our voices in joyful song during worship,
by extending a genuine welcome to our visitors,
by providing service to our community and,
by caring for one another in good times and bad.

St. Theresa of Avila wrote in the 14th century that, “God has no hands but our hands.” At Ravenswood UCC we take that on as our mission - to be the visible love of God in this time and in this place for all of the children of God.

Our worship is simple and joyful, with organ music that rings of tradition, and preaching that speaks to the issues of today. Join us this Sunday. Children and families of all colors, shapes and sizes are welcome.

Our Services

What are services like?
Joyful, welcoming, and relevant. We have an awesome pipe organ and a skilled musician at the helm that truly enhance the worship experience. Our pastor preaches engaging and powerful sermons that draw from the bible and from the newspaper. We have a children's sermon every week and offer communion to all who seek it, no i.d. check at the door.

What is the community like?
Family-friendly, multi-generational, fellowship and service focused. We have a strong German heritage that we are glad to celebrate

What if I'm not a Christian?
Seekers are welcome as much as believers. You don't have to check your brain at the door to worship at Ravenswood UCC.

Jason  Coulter

Jason Coulter

Reverend Jason W. Coulter has been pastor of our congregation since January of 2006. Pastor Jason is a graduate of Macalester College, and received his Master's of Divinity from Chicago Theological Seminary. Before entering the ministry he worked as a union organizer for UNITE, helping working people attain justice and dignity in the workplace. Pastor Jason is a native of West Bend, Wisconsin and a life-long member of the United Church of Christ. His interests include cooking, baseball and spending time with his family at the beach near their home in Rogers Park. Some thoughts on church and the divine from our pastor: "Church is more than a place to go on Sunday morning. At its best, it is a community that lives and breathes with the seasons of life." "No theological concept is more important to me than grace. The grace that we receive from God and the grace that we extend to one another are like water, we need them to survive." "The biggest question Jesus poses to us today is not, 'are you born again' but 'what have you been born for?' I believe the best answer comes from the prophet Micah, who said, God requires that we, 'Do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God.'"
