Sunday's Worship Service


God's Good News


Sunday's message: 

"Encouragement from the Father ”

1 Thessalonians 2:8-12


This week is part two of the God’s Good News series on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. In the second message, Pastor Kellen will share about the encouragement of the Father. In 1 Thessalonians 2, the Apostle Paul speaks of ministering as a father treats his own children. Learn how you can encourage others and reveal the love of God to others.

5th Sundays Concert Series

School Supply Drive


We are praying that children will get off to a good start this school year, and you can help!


Please consider donating backpacks and school supplies to help children supported through People’s Resource Center and The Bridge of Chicago’s Mission:USA. This annual mission effort is such a blessing to many children who are in need during this time.


Shopping: We have created online shopping lists on Amazon and Target. You are also welcome to shop at any store of your choice. A general supply list has also been created to help you with your purchases. You may ship backpacks and supplies directly to the church or drop off your contributions in the Rotunda. Donations may be received through July 15.


Financial Contributions: If you would like to make a financial contribution for this mission, you can do so by giving online or writing a check to First Presbyterian Church of Wheaton and designating "School Supply Drive” in the memo. If you plan to contribute financially, please make your financial contributions by Friday, July 8. This will allow our shoppers some time to purchase necessary supplies. Please contact the church office if you have any questions. Thank you for supporting the children this year!
