Who We Are
First Congregational UCC is an Open and Affirming congregation in the United Church of Christ. The church was begun as a pipeline for the underground railroad during Civil War times. Social conscious Christians came together and through their common actions and hopes in Christ formed a church here in Downers Grove. We are proud of our past, but also excited for our future. Come see a different kind of church- one where all God's children are affirmed as being made in the image of the divine, where toegther we journey in faith, growing together and engaging in ministry beyond our walls.
