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.

Rejoice! God is With You
Zephaniah 3:14-20, Isaiah 12:2-6, Philippians 4:4-7, Luke 3:7-18

Rejoice! Because God has taken away our punishment by sending his Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. Rejoice! Because God has cleared away our enemies, sin and death. Rejoice!  Because God is with you. In Christ, he has become your God, and you are his people, and he will come again to take you home to heaven.  Rejoice in God, because God rejoices over you who come to him through his Son.

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.
