Founded in 1888 by "faithful laywoman" Christina Johnson, First United Methodist is one of the oldest congregations in Western Springs and features "open hearts, open minds and open doors." Programs include Sunday school for adults and children, men's and women's groups, a "Parents' Day Out" twice-a-week child-care program, a BEDS once-a-week homeless shelter and a "Church of Rock" program that brings local and traveling bands to the church. Pastor Dean Shapley presides, and notably also serves as chaplain to the Western Springs police and fire departments. The church chapel is open 24 hours a day.
