Bringing people together for 150 years.

Here for the Community. Here for You.

Welcome to Winnetka Congregational Church. Since we opened our doors in 1874 we have been a warm, friendly, caring “House of Worship for All People” (as it says across the top of our building).

We’re about people. We’re about community. We’re about you.

Worship with us in our sanctuary or through our livestream.

Summer Sundays (3rd Sunday of June - Labor Day):
9am on the lawn, in sanctuary, or on livestream.

Fall - Spring Sundays:
10am in sanctuary or on livestream.

We’re a Sacred Space with Progressive Values

Many aspects of our Sunday experience suggest “traditional,” including our building and worship style. We have a large (and beautiful) pipe organ. Our ministers often wear robes.

But the emphasis here is on a shared experience of the Sacred.

AND we’re progressive in our values and beliefs.

Our spiritual vision is broad, our minds are open, and our commitment to the community is non-negotiable. Though not associated with a particular denomination, we’re part of the “mainline Protestant” family of churches (like Presbyterian, UCC, Methodist, and Lutheran (ELCA), and we engage intellectual, spiritual, and social questions with honesty and creativity, striving to make the world a better place.

We have been in a “visioning process” for a number of months,  making sure that in the years ahead we continue to become the kind of bold, caring, and vibrant church we want to be…and that our community and world needs. To learn more about that, click the button below.
