Chicago Temple Building. The Chicago Temple building houses the First United Methodist Church, which is Chicago’s oldest congregation. It was the tallest building in Chicago when it opened in 1924, but the Chicago Board of Trade Building was built a tiny bit higher in 1930. The main church occupies the first 3 floors. This top portion has something called the "Chapel in the Sky."
