The primary focus of Family Ministries is to help parents both understand and fulfill their biblical duties to spiritually lead and nurture their children as gifts from God (Psalm 127:3; Deuteronomy 6:5 – 9; Ephesians 6:1, 4). Working collaboratively with parents, the staff and leadership of the Family, Youth, and Children’s Ministries seek to nurture and encourage the entire family.


Our families represent the amazing diversity of both Chicago and The Moody Church. They come from varied ethnicities, different economic and educational backgrounds, and unique family and faith histories. Our programs are open to everyone, including single parents, blended families, grandparent assisted families, and those who don’t worship regularly at the church.  All are welcome!


During the COVID-19 restrictions, all of our ministries have moved online. Our Mosaic, Your Marriage Your Family, and Next Chapter Communities are meeting via Zoom, as is our Parenting Class. Find links and/or information on all of these ministries below.

Wednesdays April 15 to May 20, 8:30pm via Zoom


Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, our Parenting Class will begin meeting via Zoom. For login information for the 8:30pm call, please contact Pastor Bob Gunter.


The title of our new series is BE STILL AND KNOW, taken from Psalm 46:10, and that is where we will start learning what the Scriptures say about how we should live in these unique and challenging days. The April 15th session will be foundational, dealing with how God commands us to think and act when the world seems to be on pause, in crisis and hopelessly conflicted on what’s going to happen and wondering what should we do now!?! That’s not the biblical position Christian families need to take due to God’s sovereignty and promises of protection and provision. The series will begin with Be Still and Know THAT I AM GOD!
