Grace Chicago lives into the metaphor of the church as the family of God. We love caring for one another, rejoicing when there is cause to rejoice, mourning when there is reason to mourn. And always extending the table to include more people.

Neighborhood Community Groups

The best way to plug into the community at Grace is through one of our neighborhood groups. These groups meet throughout the year to eat together, support one another, and grow. Each group is unique, but most either use podcasts to prompt discussion, discuss Sundays homily, or read a book together. 

  • Lincoln Park: Wednesdays at 7:45pm
  • Lincoln Square: Wednesdays at 7:30pm
  • Edgewater: Tuesdays at 7:00pm
  • Lakeview: Tuesdays at 7:00pm

We exist as a church for the well-being of Chicago and for the well-being of one another. It takes everyone chipping in with their gifts to make Grace what it is.
