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.

Congregational Life

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.

Summer 2024, Summer Supper & Scripture

This is a gathering of both undergraduate and graduate students over the summer to read through and discuss a particular book of the Bible. This summer they will meet in the Commons on Wednesday evenings, 6:30-8:00p beginning June 19 and ending July 24 (six weeks). Mary Manoah, will be leading the group and will work through the book of Lamentations. Dinner is provided. If you’re around this summer, it would be great to have you! If you plan to participate please sign up so we can plan accordingly. Scripture Journals included.


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 Thursday evenings for Bible teaching, games, and discipleship from 7–8:30 p.m. in our Commons.

On Sunday mornings we meet at 9:00 a.m. for our DSGs (discipleship small groups) before the morning worship service. Join us to read the Bible together in a smaller setting (we meet upstairs in the admin space).

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 a meal and 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. Weekly during the academic year, our Community Groups meet to study the Bible and fellowship in each other’s homes. 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.

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

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.
