Worship in the Godbox

Weekly Worship

We hold weekly worship services at 10am on Sundays on the Illinois Tech campus in the historic Carr Memorial Chapel, affectionately known as the Godbox, which was designed by the renowned architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

How We Worship

Our weekly worship service is free for anyone to come and join. During service, we sing hymns and modern worship music, and we pray for both ourselves as a congregation and for God's work all around the world.

At the beginning of the month, we share communion where we remember the shedding of Jesus' blood and the breaking of his body through drinking the juice and eating the bread.


The strongest point of our worship is the focus on God's word in the Bible. Each week, a message is delivered that is based on the word of God from the Bible, holding to a specific passage.

Give to God What Is God's
Mark 12:13-17

In an attempt to trap Jesus, the religious leaders brought up the hot button issue of the imperial tax.  It is right and lawful to give back to our government the taxes due, but what can we give God?  Jesus renews us, purifying our souls that our hearts, souls, minds and bodies may be acceptable to God.  Offer your whole self, in holy living and loving service to others for the glory of God.

Unusual Kindness
Acts 28:1-10

Paul and the passengers were shipwrecked on the island of Malta. The islanders showed unusual kindness to everyone by building a fire and welcoming them. God had also shown unusual kindness, healing everyone who was sick on the island, and resupplying Paul and his ship with everything they needed. God shows unusual kindness to us by giving his one and only Son to save us, while we were sinners. In return, let's show unusual kindness toward others, especially to our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Acts 20:1-12

What do you think of when you hear the word, encourage? Who has been an encouragement to you in your life? In this passage, Paul demonstrates how he imparted courage to the early church and how we can be an encouragement to those around us. I pray that we may be mutually encouraged through this passage.

A Great Disturbance About the Way
Acts 19:23-41

The church was starting to make a big impact in the city of Ephesus, but just then there arose a great disturbance about the Christians. A great mob formed and rioting and chaos ensued. We lose self control because we are under the power of sin and Satan. Only God can quiet the disturbance. The world may try to overthrow God, but God overrules the world. In Christ disturbances may come, but in Christ sin is overcome.

Even though Jesus isn’t with us physically any more, we have access to him through his name. There is no name like his, for there is power in the name of Jesus. In today’s passage Peter and John heal a crippled beggar in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
