The seats will be arranged in rows designed to facilitate social distancing. You are welcome to choose any seat you like upon arrival. We ask that you do not adjust or move the seats and that you remain in your chosen space for the duration of the service.
We will be filming and broadcasting the service live on Facebook and YouTube. Following the conclusion of our program we will host a Zoom room for those that could not be with us in-person but that would still like to participate in a community time. One of our team will be the 'e-pastor' and continue the conversation from the morning. We would welcome you to join us digitally (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/104434493) and we ask that you use your first and last name on your screen. The Zoom room will be closed during the duration of the service and will open at the close for the community time.
We are working to meet the best practice standard as established by our local and federal authorities and there may be additional precautions in place upon arrival. Our hope is to provide a safe space for our community to experience Christ together. We hope that you will join us as we gather.
Getting to know each other
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Greater Chicago Church a great one!

What can I expect?
How long is a GCC service?
The service begins at 10am and lasts for about an hour. In an attempt to limit contact we will be asking that any pre- or post- service conversation take place outside of the facility. The Zoom room will be closed during the duration of the service and will open at the close for the community time.
The service begins with the GCC worship team leading the church in a time of worship. Then one of our speakers will come and share a powerful, encouraging and provoking message.
What's the culture like at GCC?
Sundays at GCC are exciting, casual, and relaxed. We are a house that champions freedom and simply ask that you extend the same freedom to others. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
What about my kids?
All ages are welcome; however we will not be providing childcare. Parents, you are welcome to bring iPads and headphones or anything else for your child(ren) to engage with during the service as long as it's respectful of others in the service.
