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.

Next session: Sundays beginning September 27, 3:00 – 4:30pm in Kappeler Hall


This nine-week course is typically offered twice each year, in February and September. The class is required for those seeking to be married at The Moody Church, but is open to any couple desiring to start their marriage on a solid, biblical basis. It features PREPARE/Enrich testing and practical biblical teaching by mature pastoral and lay couples. Click here to download an info sheet about the class.


The course fee of $80 per couple is for the workbooks and in-class materials. The PREPARE/Enrich testing costs $35 and is paid separately to the testing service by each couple. Register at the link below; if you have any questions, please contact Aimee Lilly.
