BP Lunch & Learn: How to Spend a Morning with Jesus

February 25, 2024

Join us for lunch and discussion, led by Andrew Robertson.

Many of us seek to have a consistent “quiet time” or devotional time in the morning, where we spend some time in the Word and in prayer. However, some may not know where to start in this area, or feel stuck in a rut, and are looking for some fresh ideas or perspective. This session will aim to show the benefit of a consistent rhythm of time with God in the morning, and give some ideas for what that might look like on a practical level.

Thursday, November 30, 2023
6:30-8:30 PM CST, The Moody Church
(Clarkview Room)

What in the world is happening in Israel and the Middle East? If you have these questions, you are not alone. What should followers of Jesus know about the conflict, and what does the Bible have to say about Israel, her neighbors, and Jewish people? Join us in downtown Chicago on Thursday, November 30, for a night of prayer, education, and worship hosted by Chosen People Ministries, Life in Messiah, and The Moody Church. We invite you to join this free, city-wide Christian event to understand better how God’s word frames the events of the past two months and how we, as Christians, can pray and act. Since Abraham, King David, and Jesus lived and ministered in the land of Israel, it should also be important to us.

Night Church


How can we show up for those in our communities? By being available, being present, and being light in the darkness.
Night Church in Chicago was created to have the gospel and people of God mobilize during the night hours to share the love of Jesus.


Alpha is an 11-week course that creates a friendly, open, and informal space where people can come and discuss life’s big questions. Each week is centered around a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts and ask questions. No question is too basic or too big.

Our first session of Alpha is more of a look and see, or, a session to feel out if you’d like to join us for the next 10 weeks. If it looks interesting to you, we would love for you to keep coming! Alpha sessions will be held at Park Near North on Tuesday beginning April 12 from 6:45-9 PM.
