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.

Sermons

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.

The Power of Jesus' Name
Acts 3:1-10

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.

Open Our Eyes, Lord
2 Kings 6:1-23

The Lord has great power over the heavens and the earth, yet shows great compassion to every single person. The Lord blinds an Aramean army, and they are deceived and led to Samaria. Their eyes are opened, and they see they are in the heart of enemy territory, their lives in danger. Elisha asks that mercy be shown to them, and they are fed. May the Lord open our eyes to see our sin, and then open our eyes to the mercy he has shown us in Jesus Christ.

The Call of Elisha
1 Kings 19:19-21

Elijah, restored and encouraged by God, obeyed His word and set out to anoint Elisha as his successor.  He found Elisha hard at work on his family estate, and he threw his cloak around him, signifying the call.  Elisha responded, and left all to follow and serve Elijah.  God also calls us through his gospel to belong to Jesus Christ, and to be his holy people, to follow Christ, no longer serving the world or ourselves, but giving our whole lives to serve Christ.

Is There No God in Israel?
2 Kings 1:1-18

Second Kings opens with the story of King Ahaziah, Ahab's son and successor to Israel's throne. When he is critically injured, he immediately sends messengers to inquire of the Philistine god Baal-Zebub. God intercepts them through Elijah and asks the king, "Is it because there is no God in Israel?" Do you believe there is a God in Israel? The God in Israel is the only God, and he has a message to all the world: there is mercy and salvation through faith in his Son, Jesus Christ.
