“Awesome Acoustics, History and Service”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful music, classic hymns and a professional organist. Friendly, informed ushers to give you a brief history of the church-just enough. Feels like you walk back in time when you enter the sanctuary especially when you see the hat holders under every chair. The service was meaningful, but be prepared for very conservative, outgoing church members who like to talk about their faith.

“Great Historical Place to Go to Church”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We enjoyed the service so much and stayed for the tour afterwards. Awesome place!! The pews were the old fashioned theatre seats. The greeter was very helpful in finding us a seat. The music was excellent. Must go!

“Trip to Chicago”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I found the church to be open and friendly. The service was meaningful and relevant today's issues. I enjoyed Pastor's Reception and the tour that followed. I was able to stand in Dr. Lutzer's pulpit. It was awesome.

“Awesome church with great history”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

If you are a follower in Christ and love American church history you HAVE TO visit this place. Attend a Sunday morning church, after the service you can visit the visitor centre (where they have refreshments and you can meet the minister) and then go on a tour of the church and hear about the history. It's fascinating- D.L. Moody was a very interesting man and one who reflected Christ in the way he lived. The guy who gave our tour (I think Patrick) knew his history so well! Lovely bloke

“Unique and majestic!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

If you visit Chicago and see the magnificent mile and the old town, this also makes a perfect stop. The best time to visit is definitely Sunday morning. The service is pretty short 9:50am-11:25am. Once the service is over, they have a free reception for visitors: free snacks and an awesome historical tour of the church.
