History

 

     The Burbank Manor Presbyterian Church was founded as a community church in 1944. Its creation was the result of evangelical efforts by the Church Federation of Greater Chicago. They sought to establish new churches to serve the spiritual needs of the expanding population in the Burbank area at that time.

    Its establishment was made possible by gifts from the Church Federation of Greater Chicago, the Chicago Presbytery, individuals, business and industry; a truly unique array of contributions.

     Sponsored specially by the Chicago Presbytery, in1958 the congregation decided to affiliate with the United Presbyterian Church and took the name Burbank Manor Presbyterian Church. Today, our church is fully PC(USA) and part of Chicago Presbytery.
