For more than a century now, God has been using Marquette Manor Baptist Church to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to help believers grow in their relationship with Him.

The story of Marquette isn't about just one generation of believers overcoming challenges and seizing opportunities to make a lasting contribution to the cause of Christ. It's the story of God's grace over many generations.

From its founding on May 22, 1921, through the early church planting years, then decades of ministry in the city at 60th and California, to our current home in Downers Grove, God has been building and sustaining His church. Those of us at Marquette today count it a privilege to be the generation that gets to celebrate this milestone.


Our original plan was to hold our centennial celebration in June of 2021, but in the Lord's providence, COVID prompted us to wait a year. As life here in Illinois moves back towards "normal," we are hopeful that many folks who were once a part of the Marquette church family will be able to come and rejoice with us.

Our tentative schedule includes a trip to the city location on Saturday morning, returning in time for a picnic lunch. We will have a special fellowship time before our morning service at 10:30 a.m. Following the morning service will be a catered lunch and an opportunity for testimonies and praises.

If you would like more information about our 100+ anniversary celebration, please follow this link to provide your contact information. Since we have limited seating on our bus, we request that you indicate your desire to be part of the trip to the city. If you have some encouraging stories from your time at Marquette, pictures, or videos that you want to share, we would love to hear from you!

Please join us in praying that God will be honored as we celebrate a century of His abundant grace ministered in and through the lives of those privileged to serve Him at Marquette Manor Baptist Church!
