We are an open house.

Open to questions. Open to conversations. Open to all.

Open-minded and faithful. Question-embracing and spiritual. Profoundly inclusive and unabashedly grounded in Jesus. Welcome to Winnetka Congregational Church.

Worship with us in our sanctuary or through our livestream.

We might surprise you. We hope we do.

Around here, we’re not interested in just “church as it has been.” But we’re very curious about church as it could be.  And in becoming the kind of community that can make a difference in our world today. 

So, when you step inside our doors, you’ll discover a group of open-hearted, imperfect people, humbly trying to figure out how to create lives that are authentic, compassionate, hopeful, even joy-filled.  And who are committed to learning to love others as God loves us. We definitely don’t have all the answers. But it’s a beautiful journey to be on together.


I value how our church pushes me to relate my faith to the world and the world to my faith.

Katie, 4th generation member, and her son Theo.

Learn & Grow

Kids, teens, adults:  Whatever your age, learn more about Jesus’ call to know and love God, our neighbors and ourselves.

Care & Do Justice

Join with us in working for a more loving and just world, from climate justice, and anti-racism to multifaith solidarity and LGBTQ+ inclusion.
