Edgewood Presbyterian Church is an open and affirming congregation drawing its membership from throughout the Birmingham metropolitan area. This means they are welcome to worship and to bring their whole self to this community. Whatever age, race, ethnicity, physical or mental ability, education, financial status, employment, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, there is a sacred space for each of us to participate fully in the life of EPC.
They joyfully proclaim the gospel of God’s love. As a diverse and inclusive community of believers, they celebrate their unity in Christ. They believe they are called to compassionate service in our congregation, in their community, and in the world. Edgewood invites all who want to explore the great mystery of faith and paths of discipleship to join them.
From its beginning in 1912, this congregation has been devoted to faithful worship, teaching, and learning. As people who have experienced brokenness, we can testify that Christ Jesus lives to bind up the brokenhearted and heal the suffering. We feel a special calling to represent the peace of God — in our church, in our community, and in our lives as Christian disciples.
Following Christ’s own example, we seek to involve ourselves in the lives of those in need, through our denominational mission programs, as well as through local ministries. Our faith calls us to work where others feel separation, and we are committed to proclaiming God’s demand for justice for all creation.
We describe our worship as “traditional-relaxed.” We combine ancient tradition with the goal of taking Jesus more seriously than we take ourselves.
So we sing hymns accompanied by an organ, while finding time to laugh and get creative in our praise. We strive to include worshipers of all ages in our service and offer a welcome seat and open table to all who wish to join us.
The Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion) is shared each Sunday, with a gluten-free option available.
Edgewood Presbyterian Church is a member congregation in the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and a More Light Congregation. We invite ALL who seek Christ as Lord to join us in our celebration of renewal and our pilgrimage with God in the World. And we really mean this.
