52nd Annual Christmas in Chicago Concert

Christmas in Chicago

Saturday, December 9, 2023 at 2:30pm and 7:00pm

Celebrate the Christmas season with The Moody Church at our annual Christmas Concert! This event is the highlight of our Christmas season, with classic carols and holiday favorites. Our beautiful Sanctuary is even more stunning with the colorful and dramatic lighting. Every year, people tell us that the concert is one of the best Christmas events in Chicago.  We’ll see you there! Admission and parking are FREE, but tickets are required.


Seating is general admission and available on first-come, first-served basis. A ticket is required for entry but does not reserve a specific seat. Doors open at 1:45pm and 6:15pm for admission; we cannot accommodate early arrivals inside the building. 


Note: The concert will not be broadcast live. We hope you can join us in person for this wonderful experience, along with your family and friends!

Each year, we select a concert beneficiary which receives 100% of financial gifts received at the event. This year, all proceeds will support one of our ministry partners serving the migrant crisis in our city. Learn more about this year’s offering beneficiary.
