Meet us in the gallery on the 2nd floor any time between 2 and 5 pm. The Sky Chapel tour will begin at 3 pm.

About The Chicago Temple Building
This 568-foot-tall skyscraper built in 1924 is the tallest church building in the world, topping the spire heights of Europe’s grand cathedrals. It serves as a Neo-Gothic monument to the Methodists’ commitment to the Loop at a time when pressure was great to move to the suburbs. It is home to the First United Methodist Church of Chicago, the oldest congregation in the city. The tower houses the “Sky Chapel” at its highest level, a sanctuary on the ground floor and art gallery on the second floor.
