The Sunday Divine Service

The Sunday Divine Service is at the heart of our life together. It is an opportunity to hear God’s Word and receive Christ’s body and blood for the forgiveness of sins.

The Divine Service begins at 10:45 a.m. every Sunday. In July and August we meet in our air-conditioned basement, which you can enter from the Paulina side of the street.

Photo1Every Sunday Service offers God’s gifts of His Word, preaching, and the Lord’s Supper. Since we treasure each of those gifts, we do not wish to omit any of them on a Sunday morning. To underscore these gifts, we follow a pattern commonly called the liturgy. The core of the liturgy is the same from Sunday to Sunday, since it consists of key passages of the Scripture that call for us to steep ourselves in them throughout our lifetime. But the hymns and Scripture readings of the day vary from week to week, which allow us to explore the full counsel of God over the course of a year.

We are located at the intersection of Le Moyne and Paulina in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago.
