Are you saying to yourself, “The video broadcasts of First Congo’s worship services are wonderful, but there’s something missing. Oh, yes, the offering plate!”?

Your continuing pledge gifts and offerings at this time of uncertainty will help First Congregational Church continue to minister to our members, neighbors and the wider world.  If you usually make a pledge gift or offering on Sunday morning, here are some other ways to transmit your gift: 

– Support your US Post Office by mailing your check to First Congregational Church, 1106 Chestnut St., Western Springs, IL 60558.

– Take a healthy walk or bike ride, and drop it in our fancy locked mailbox next to the Chestnut Street entrance of the Education Building.  We check the box daily.

– Set up a one-time or monthly check payment from your bank’s website.  Look under the “Bill Payment” function.  No stamp required!

– Make a one-time or recurring gift through Realm at You don’t even need to log on to Realm!


Our Christian Service Fund is used to help those individuals and organizations with the most urgent needs — assisting members, friends and strangers who need a helping hand. To make a gift directly to the Christian Service Fund, include “CSF” in the memo line of your check or make a gift at


Contact Nancy O’Brien at nancy@wscongo or (708) 391-0448 for help with any of the above.

We are most grateful for your gifts and offerings, especially during this time of uncertainty and hope.
