Pet Blessing and Free Prayer
October 4 is the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment. To commemorate this observance, First Church Des Plaines will offer pet blessings and free prayer on our lawn Wednesday, October 4 from 5-8pm and Saturday, October 7 from 8-11am. Stop by anytime for prayer and a blessing for furry, feathery, fluffy, slimy and spikey friends of all shapes and sizes.

This church is my family and my connection to God.

Janice Weber talks about why First Church of Des Plaines is important to her life.

MDO is Back!

We're accepting Registrations now for this fall. 

Visiting for the first time?

​Connecting with a new community can be scary. It's a little less that way when you think of us as believers and seekers from all walks of life.


No one will question your beliefs, or, to be honest, your un-beliefs.  Just come on in and give us a test drive.

We're easy to find.

The church is on the northwest corner of Prairie and Graceland Avenues in Des Plaines.


Live streaming every Sunday at 10 a.m.
