Are you looking for an environment to explore God and faith? Join us Sunday morning for a worship service that draws people from all backgrounds.
We meet Sundays from 10am-11:15am in the Sanctuary to sing, pray, and study God’s Word. We’re located at the intersection of Lincoln Park and Old Town, and within walking distance of River North and the Gold Coast.
You’re invited to explore God with us. We look forward to seeing you!
Beginning December 1: Why He Came
We’ve all heard that Jesus is the reason for the season, but why? Why did Jesus come, and what did He accomplish through His life, death, and resurrection? The nativity was only the beginning. Jesus’ life here on earth fulfilled God’s promises given over 4,000 years ago, and that continues now and into eternity. The scope of the goodness and richness of Jesus’ blessings for us is incredible!
This Advent season, don’t miss the bigger picture behind the Christmas story. Join us as we marvel at what Jesus accomplished for us all and what is still to come.
What To Expect
Every Sunday, approximately 2000 people gather for music, Scripture, and a message from the Bible intended to bring about transformation in our lives. We are, in effect, preparing ourselves to be ambassadors for Christ in the world. The morning service typically lasts 75 minutes.
If this is your first experience at The Moody Church, here’s what you can expect over the next hour and fifteen minutes:
- We sing of God’s grace and faithfulness
- We seek the Lord in prayer as a church family
- We worship Him through our offerings
- We learn from God’s Word, led by our teaching pastor.
Guests are also invited to attend a Visitors Reception after the morning service to find out more about the church and how to get involved.
We come to church to worship God, so modest dress is appropriate. However, all styles are welcome, and you’ll see people wearing anything from jeans to suits. Come as you are!
We have a number of programs and opportunities for your children on Sunday morning. Our TMC Kids program is on the 2nd floor of the church, accessible by all elevators in the building. We offer a secure check-in system at the kiosk computers. A Welcome Team is on staff every Sunday to answer questions, help you check in, and point you in the right direction. Your kids will have a blast with us every Sunday!

We at The Moody Church recognize that our spiritual journey is done as a community and involves every stage of life. There’s something for everyone here.
We recommend that you take the next steps to get involved by joining a Sunday Community. Before and after the morning service, there are a number of Communities meeting in the Christian Life Center for all walks of life.
Another deeper, more personal way to get involved is to find a Small Group around Chicago where people meet weekly to socialize and read God’s Word.
Or, if you’d like to take a topical Class, these can be great ways to deepen your faith and meet others.
Stop by the Connection Corner in the main lobby for more information, or check out the ministries and communities of the church by clicking on the Ministries tab in the navigation bar.
Our normal practice is to serve communion on the first Sunday of each month. We welcome all who profess the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior to receive communion—you do not need to be a member of The Moody Church to participate.
In order to include as many people as possible in the communion ordinance, we serve gluten-free matzo (free of most allergens) and 100% grape juice. A certified allergen-free option is also available. Detailed information about the elements can be downloaded here.
Every Sunday morning, Prayer Partners are available at the front of the sanctuary after the service to assist you with spiritual needs or to help you get connected with church groups and ministries. Prayer partners are also available after our Sunday Evening Gathering, and of course during our Wednesday Prayer Gathering.
The offering is intended for our members and regular attenders. As our guest, you are under no obligation to give to the church, so feel free to let the basket pass by. However, we would love to have you fill out one of the Connection Cards located in the seat racks; simply place the completed card in the offering basket.
If you’re coming to The Moody Church for the first time, we would love to have you join us after the morning service for a special reception in the Visitors Center. We welcome the opportunity to help you get to know our church family and answer any questions you may have.
