Worship Services & Times
First off ... when and where do we meet?
Our Sunday Worship Services are held at 10 a.m., and generally last between 75 and 90 minutes. Our church is located in the heart of the Chicago Loop area: 11 E Adams St, Suite #1200. Find out more by going to the "Directions" page.
What are the services like?
There are three things you should know about our worship services at Loop:
(1) We are a tribe-sized church -- our services range from 40 to 50 people. When you come, don't expect a mega-church ... but expect to find friendly, open people, mostly young, from a variety of backgrounds.
(2) We are an inter-active church -- our services invite participation, including having a time for questions and discussion after the sermon. When you come, don't expect to find a group of passive observers ... but expect to find a group of thoughtful people who aren't afraid to question, and talk about real -- and difficult -- things.
(3) We are a blended style of worship church -- our services combine contemporary and traditional music and liturgies, and we often consider our place as Christians in the context of our location here in the heart of a major metropolitan center. When you come, don't expect Christian rock music, light shows, and fog machines for your worship experience ... but expect to find a variety of worship expressions, and a thoughtful mixture of contemporary and traditional worship expressions.
What are the sermons like?
We don't usually video record our services, but a friend recorded the following sermon in 2017. This is a good representation of the kind of teaching you'll get from Pastor Mark at Loop Church. This sermon was based on Matthew 14:22-33, the story of Jesus walking on water. Just FYI, we usually take time for Q and A after messages, but that day's Q and A is not included in this recording.

Parking and public transportation
As you can see from this map, our church is close to all the CTA lines in the heart of the Loop. If you're coming by car, use the parking garage right next door (17 E Adams St). We will validate parking for this parking garage.
Loop Church is a contemporary church, rooted in the Reformed tradition. Our services combine contemporary and traditional music and liturgies, and we often consider our place as Christians in the context of our location here in the heart of a major metropolitan center. A variety of liturgists, musicians, and singers lead our worship services.
