The Epworth United Methodist Church is a United Methodist church in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois.

The church was formally organized as the Epworth Methodist Episcopal Church in July 1889, and the main part of the church building was built in the early 1890s.[2] Parts of the church were constructed using boulders from Wisconsin, which were floated south down Lake Michigan.[3]

It has also been known as the Epworth Methodist Church.[1] The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places under the name "Epworth Methodist Episcopal Church" in 2008. The listing included one contributing building and one contributing object.[1][4]
