Bring your musical talents to our handbell choir. This group brings joyful music to worship once a month, September through May. Rehearsals take place weekly. Members must be able to read music.

Interfaith Dialogue


As a congregation that learns across faiths and generations, we regularly partner in interfaith dialogue with other houses of worship including Congregation Sukkat Shalom of Wilmette and the Muslim Community Center of Morton Grove.

Contemplative Prayer


Restore clarity and focus to your life through contemplative prayer. Rooted in Christian history, contemplative prayer combines guided meditation and silent prayer.

Book Group


Want to broaden your reading? Join our book group. Each month, members congregate to discuss a new book. The topics are varied and selected by the group.

Kids Club

This is an after-school program where elementary age children come together to play games, make crafts and engage in simple service projects — all in a fun and supportive setting.

Men’s Group


FCCW offers a variety of men’s ministry opportunities, facilitated by Pastor Jason Okrzynski. Men of the church meet for monthly discussion and spiritual check in; for a Men’s Breakfast; and for Men’s Quarterly outings and social times. Retreats, outdoor activities, and volunteer opportunities enrich the lives of the men in the congregation. The men of the church host our annual Souper Bowl Sunday Luncheon, held on Super Bowl Sunday, benefitting local food pantries.



During the year we have periodic men’s and women’s retreats for exploring our faith beyond our church walls.
