Ministries

Angel Tree

Angel Tree, a ministry of Prison Fellowship, provides Christmas presents to the children of prison inmates on behalf of the incarcerated parent and in the name of Christ. Gifts are collected and then distributed to the children at a dinner and Christmas party in December. Volunteers are needed beginning in October to call families, organize gifts, help host the party, and aid in parking and registration duties.

Bread of Life

Bread of Life is a multi-church outreach ministry serving homeless and needy people in Chicago, providing tangible assistance while also building relationships to help them get back on their feet. Volunteers serve Saturdays from 6:45pm to 8:30pm at the State building at Clark and Randolph, distributing food, toiletries, clothing and Bibles to as many as 150 homeless.

Connecting with Muslims

This ministry provides resources intended to bring the love of Jesus to our Muslim friends. Available materials include books, DVDs, tracts, Bibles in various languages, and information for upcoming events.  

Our purpose is to help Christians understand the real issues affecting relationships with Muslims today and to better connect with them. We can direct interested Christians to classes which will expand their understanding of Islam, explain how to give away gifts which are greatly appreciated by Muslims, and connect those who are interested with Muslims living in the Chicagoarea who are looking for American friendship partners.

Above all, we pray intentionally with those who share with us for our relationships with local Muslims so that God will be glorified in how we treat our neighbors of different religions with respect, dignity, and love.

For One Chicago

For One Chicago is a joint effort of several evangelical churches to work together throughout the city to serve others in maintenance, painting, shopping, housekeeping, indoor and outdoor activities. This day of fun, ministry, and fellowship concludes with a celebration with all participants. Lunch and dinner are provided for all volunteers.

Good News Jail Ministry

The Moody Church works in conjunction with Good News Jail & Prison Ministry to minister to the inmate population at Cook County Jail. Andre Fiedler and his team conduct bi-weekly Bible studies in Division 9, a maximum-security division of the jail. This is primarily a ministry of teaching, encouragement, and prayer for those awaiting trial, often for serious offenses.

Marathon Cheering Section

This annual event allows The Moody Church to support the 45,000 runners participating in the Chicago Marathon and to reach out to the surrounding community, inviting them to join us for a fun morning full of live music, food, and fellowship. Volunteers are needed to help with food preparation, set up and serving.

7:00–10:00am: Cheering Section Outreach
11:00am – 12:30pm: Morning Service

Moody Ambassadors

On the second and third Wednesdays of each month, The Moody Church sends a team to conduct an evening gospel service at Pacific Garden Mission (PGM). Volunteers not only serve from the platform but also show friendship to and pray with the men and women of PGM.

Refugee Ministry

Operating in conjunction with World Relief, this ministry provides support to refugees who come to The Moody Church from other countries. Volunteers are needed to welcome new refugees as they arrive at Chicago airports and help them adjust to their new culture.
