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 Heart of Man
Matthew 15:1-20

Jesus confronts the Pharisees over their traditions, which were designed to make one ceremonially clean. He exposed their hypocrisy by pointing out how they had used their traditions to overturn the Law of God, but he also exposed a deeper problem with all humanity: an unclean heart.  For out of the heart come wicked thoughts. But this is why Jesus came: to cleanse us and give us new hearts. As the hymn goes, What can wash away our sin?  Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Even the Dogs Eat the Crumbs
Mark 7:24-30

A Gentile woman responds to Jesus' apparent rejection, owning up to being a dog and asking Jesus for just a crumb of His grace. Jesus did not reject nor insult her, but taught her who He was. When she realized it, He granted her request, and lifted her up from under the table to at the table as a child of God.

It's Easy for the Lord
2 Kings 3:1-27

Have you ever been in a situation where you were beating your head against the wall trying to figure out how to get a task done and then someone comes along and says, "Oh that's easy, let me help you with that." and within minutes your done and you wonder to yourself, why didn't I ask them sooner? This passage has a lot in common with that scenario except that it involves three kings, a prophet and the word of God.
