Church of the Three Crosses offers a variety of programs and opportunities for mission for folks to explore and express their faith.

Worship – at 11:00 am each Sunday morning (except 2nd weekend in June, Old Town Art Fair, worship is at 9:00 am). Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month. A sanctuary projection system provides opportunities to supplement worship with relevant and enriching images.

Music – ad hoc musical expressions enhance worship. An “everybody bring your high school band instrument” orchestra is gathered once a year.

If you want to explore

Education – it is a natural, human response to want to understand and figure things out, especially about what and why we believe. Thus, adult and youth education is a vital part of our spiritual journey.

Adult Conversations – meets around exploring relevant topics and subject matters. Normally meets for a 4-week series, with dinner included.

Book Group – meets approximately every six weeks to read and discuss a variety of books, including fiction and theology/spirituality.

Yoga – meets each Monday at 7:00pm and Saturday at 8:00am at the church and is open to the neighborhood. Facilitated by a certified yoga instructor, the cost for each participant is $20 per class. This is a non-religious event.

If you are looking for community service

Service & Social Justice – we strive to make a positive difference in the world amidst so many needs and challenges.

Deborah’s Place – each last Tuesday of the month (September through June) the church provides a meal to the residents of Deborah’s Place, about four blocks from the church building. Deborah’s Place is a supportive housing facility that provides a home to women who have been homeless.

Pride Parade – for the last several years a contingent of the congregation has marched in Chicago’s annual Pride Parade along with the other congregations of the Chicago Coalition of Welcoming Churches.

Our Building as Mission Space – throughout the week our building, with its flexible and multi-use space, is rented by a variety of neighborhood organizations including support groups, theater companies and Old Town’s Kindermusik. For facility information, go to the “contact” section.

Wedding Space – wedding space for all couples seeking marriages or civil unions.

Night Ministry Outreach – on the second Thursday evening, we meet at the church to prepare for the night, making sandwiches and packing snack items we provide at the Night Ministry's Health Bus stop.

Communion Offerings – throughout each month, an organization is designated as the recipient of that month’s Communion Offering. These recipients are a diverse mix of social service agencies from those providing support to people who are homeless, to agencies offering services to stray animals, to those offering inventive educational programs to children. As follows, these agencies are both national and international in their scope:

Access Living
Cabrini Green Legal Aid
Care2 Prevent
Casa Esperanza
Chicago Religious Leadership Network
Cure Violence
Deborah’s Place
Lincoln Park Community Shelter
National Immigrant Justice Center (division of Heartland Alliance)
Reconciling Ministries Network
The Night Ministry
World Communion Sunday (UCC & UMC)
