It’s positively different here

Why can’t a church be a place for everyone? Why not accept people, regardless of their beliefs? Why not create an environment where adults and kids have fun while learning? At First Congregational Church of Wilmette (FCCW), these are things we believe in. Positive experiences. Positive impact. Positively different.

“As we become more isolated, fragmented and busy in today’s world, there’s a lot to be said for having a place where you’re known and where you can find support, friendships, and opportunities to make a difference.”
