Welcome to Luther Memorial Church of Chicago

We're Hiring!

Manager of Church Administration and Communication

The Manager of Communication and Administration will oversee the day to day operations of LMC. This includes administration of building use and tenant relationships, internal and external communications, and other administrative duties as set forth below. The person in this position will report to the Pastor and work closely with the staff, congregation, building users, and members of the community to support LMC’s mission and vision.

In-Person Worship

LMC is returning to in-person worship! Starting Pentecost, May 23, Luther Memorial Church will return to the sanctuary for a condensed, socially-distanced service. Services will be held at 9am every Sunday, with safety protocols in place to reduce risk as much as practical. Here are a few things to know:

Space is limited to 60 attendees (not including leaders and volunteers). Reservations are required and will open on the Tuesday before service. If you are serving in worship, please do not make a reservation - we have already accounted for worship servers and musicians in our number. Everyone else should click the link to make a worship reservation.

Masks will be required throughout the service.

The sanctuary will open at 8:40am, with specific pews are designated for seating and for keeping available for the saints. We ask that you pay attention to the ones with the green signs showing the pew is available. Family members are asked to sit together (including children) and that those outside of the family sit at least six feet apart.

Communion will be provided in a safe manner and available to pick up prior to service. An offering plate will also be available prior to sitting down to leave your gift. 

Visit us on Tuesday for registration!

Weekly Streaming Worship

We gather in our home spaces for streaming worship on Sunday mornings for those who are not able or are not yet comfortable or ready to join us in person.  Each Sunday, worship will be streamed on YouTube. Please join us at 9:00 a.m. or whenever you are able.
