Worship Service : Sundays at 10:00 AM

Whoever you are, wherever you are in your journey of faith, you are welcome in this place.

We are a blended congregation:  United Methodist and Congregational.  We have been serving the communities of West Chicago, Winfield and Warrenville for over 170 years.    The First United Methodist Church was organized in 1835.  The First Congregational Church was organized in 1856.
We began worshipping together in 2004 and are covenanted together.  Our goal is to be a dual-denominational church, honoring and respecting the traditions of both denominations, and to welcome all who wish to worship with us.
