Who we are

We are a small congregation with a big heart.
We are multi-cultural and intergenerational.
Some worshipers dress casually; others choose to dress up. Both types of dress are appropriate at Evanshire.
Someone will surely invite you to Coffee Hour following worship!
We are reformed in tradition; our church is affiliated with the Presbytery of Chicago, the Synod of Lincoln Trails and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

Our Worship

Our church is multi-cultural and intergenerational so these attributes are evident in our worship.
We encourage young people to lead worship!
Our music is traditional, contemporary and in the gospel tradition with soloists singing each week.
Instrumentalists are encouraged to offer their gifts in worship.
Readers’ theater and dramatic readings also glorify God in worship.
Worshipers follow the service through worship bulletins.
Our organist/pianist accompanies hymns and songs for congregational singing. We enjoy preludes and postludes chosen according to the morning’s texts.
Occasionally we enjoy a slide presentation on mission.

History of Evanshire Presbyterian Church Skokie

In 1954 McCormick Seminary student Jay Confair was assigned to canvas families in Skokie and nearby suburbs who might be looking for a home church. A dozen families responded. A storefront location on the corner of Niles Center Road and Church Street was rented when the area was still a prairie. The Evanston United Presbyterian Church had sold their building and was planning to relocate in Skokie. The Evanston church somehow found the people in the storefront church and on May 20, 1955 the churches merged under the name of Evanshire Presbyterian Church.

As we look forward, we are praying about where God is leading Evanshire. Knox Fellowship, Burlingame/San Francisco, CA came to lead us in an Adventure in Faith weekend in 2009. Our next step is to work with Knox on Mapping the Mission, which is a church retreat where we hope to discover God’s vision for the church’s outreach/evangelism ministry for the next three to five years, and to develop a plan by which to implement the vision.   Edit
