The church is a people who seek to follow and serve Jesus. We desire to grow in grace and train for godliness. We understand that these are not solitary endeavors, so we aim to create spaces and opportunities apart from a Sunday morning where we can pursue these things together. Spanning from preschool through adulthood, we offer regular weekly programming that is intended to strengthen and encourage. Please join us as we walk together.

University

The University Ministry comes alongside undergraduate and graduate students while they pursue their academic goals. The university community makes up nearly half of our Sunday congregation and are a vital part of our make up. We eagerly desire to walk with our university students to serve and strengthen them while they are a part of our congregation. 

The University Ministry aims:

  • To equip students to read the Bible well so that they are able to apply it to their personal lives and into the university context.
  • To foster confidence in the Christian faith and to demonstrate Christian witness.
  • To relationally strengthen and encourage the faith community.
  • To prepare students for service in a local church setting after graduation.

To accomplish these aims, we gather weekly to engage in Bible discussion, host social events, frequently share meals together, and organize formative experiences. We desire to see the faith of students flourish while they are in their academic pursuits.

If you have additional questions or would like more information, please reach out.

 

Youth

We desire to walk alongside our students, grades 6-12. Our earnest hope to see each student grow in their understanding of the Bible, strengthen their relationship with Christ, and continue to follow Him. 

We do this through:

  • Teaching the Bible consistently and faithfully.
  • Discipling and mentoring students with the help of adult volunteer leadership.
  • Relating to students by creating lasting and substantial relationships.
  • Partnering with the parents.
  • Engaging in service opportunities.

We meet:

  • Now through Oct. 22nd: Thursdays from 5:30–7:00 p.m. for regular Youth Group outdoors @ Bixler Park.
  • Oct. 29th through Dec. 17th: Thursdays from 7:00–8:30 p.m. @ The Loft (1438 E. 57th St.).
  • Starting Nov. 5th: H20 (High Schoolers) will meet Thursday nights after YG from 8:30–9:15 p.m. @ The Loft.

For more information, please reach out.

 

 

Congregational Life

We are a faith family that is comprised of all walks of life. Therefore we aim to provide opportunities that allow us to strengthen one another.

Our congregation meets regularly on the first Sunday evening of the month for prayer. Monthly, we host luncheons after the worship service to create a space for people to get to know one another. Our children have organized outings to cultivate friendship. Over the summer, our women gather together weekly and engage over the Bible. In the past we’ve regularly held a married couples small group that has allowed us to pour into one another. These are snapshots of our life together. We invite you to join us because we believe we are strengthened by your presence.

For more information, please contact us.

Children

Kid City is the children’s ministry of Christ Church Chicago. It is our desire to support parents/caregivers in the spiritual nurture of their children by teaching them about Jesus and his gospel. We do this by providing a safe, loving, and fun environment for kids to learn God’s Word and experience His love so that they might worship and serve Him. 

Each Sunday, children “board” a colored train designated for their age group to spend time singing songs, doing crafts, playing games, and learning from our trained leaders. The respective trains are boarded by the following age groups. 

  • Blue line train (0-3 years old)
  • Green line train (preschool, ages 3–5)
  • Red line train (kindergarten–2nd grade)
  • Orange line train (3rd–5th grade)

Additionally, during the week there are opportunities to encourage families and further build into our children. During the school year, a weekly playgroup serving 0-4 year olds (preschool aged) gathers for a story time and social interaction. These mornings together allow caretakers to connect and encourage one another, while their children are read stories and interact with other children.

For more information, please contact us.

Community Groups

Community Groups are the heartbeat of our congregation. These groups gather weekly in local neighborhood homes and allow us to share life together. 

During these gatherings, groups discuss and reflect on the Bible, share meals together, and pray with one another. Within community groups we are able to demonstrate care for one another, serve one another, and meet one another’s needs as life unfolds. Additionally, our community groups are the engine for service to our neighbors. They are found serving in local schools and collectively investing their time in local community service initiatives.
