Taste of Choir
This is your opportunity to join the choir for a 30-minute open rehearsal to get a “taste” of singing with us. This is not an audition, but if you’re a singer, it’s a great way to decide if choir is for you. We have plenty of room for you at any time, so just contact us about your interest, or we’ll see you on Sunday the 7th at our next Taste of Choir!

Sanctuary Choir Reunion
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
On May 3 and 4, we brought over 130 voices together in singing praise to our God, giving thanks over the remembrance of His faithfulness to The Moody Church for 150 years, and celebrating the joy of changed lives through song.

Good Friday Service
A reflective worship experience with music by the Sanctuary Choir and string ensemble and a special service of communion. This year, we will walk through the Seven Cries from the Cross. Join us at 7:00pm on Friday April 18 in the Sanctuary.
Holy Week Vespers Service
A service of reflection, prayer and preparation during the season of Lent, integrating a variety of musical and artistic elements presented by the Artist Circle.
John 1 says that Christ is the Light that enters the darkness, but the darkness has not comprehended it. This begs the question, “Who will see the light?”. Presented by the Artist Circle, this dramatic experience including a variety of musical and artistic elements will look into the lives of three individuals who encountered the Light, and their responses. Featured guest author and speaker Christopher Yuan will present his compelling “changed-life” story; what happens when someone sees that Light?
All are invited to these free, enriching evenings, featuring a wide variety of music performed by members and friends of the church. Concerts are typically held in the church lobby, with light refreshments served afterwards. Fine music, fun fellowship and free food – don’t miss out!
Coming next: David Taylor, Assistant Concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra will perform with pianist Brian Lee, Faculty at the Moody Bible Institute, Sunday June 1 at 6:30pm in the Extended Lobby!
