About the Presbyterian Church of Western Springs (PCWS)
Since our founding in 1955, PCWS has consistently been defined as a welcoming, multi-generational and mission-focused community seeking to reflect God’s inclusive love. We are a vibrant, joyful congregation representing people of all ages. Located 17 miles west of Chicago, we represent members from all over the Western Suburbs and visitors are always welcome. We are a dynamic congregation with close ties to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A).
We embrace worship that touches the mind, heart and soul; learning environments that invite questions and provide encouragement; service that reaches out to others in need; and fellowship that brings people together. Our church is about merging faith and daily living, as we seek to know God deeply and more fully.
Throughout our history, the Presbyterian Church of Western Springs has maintained a commitment to serving the needs of its congregation and the community. Our church building was built in 1960 with an addition completed in 1999 providing greater accessibility and increased classroom space. Through pastoral care, programs and a deep commitment to mission beyond our walls we continue to serve with energy, intelligence, imagination and love.
