First United is celebrating 100 years with our "Building for the Ages." Throughout 2018, we will honor our church's history. Click on the links below to learn how "Our Walls Tell Our Story" in photos and artwork. In June, a panel will revisit how First United members led the fight in the 1960s and 1970s for open housing in Oak Park. In September, we will celebrate on the lawn with a Centennial Birthday Party with games and music for the whole family. And don't miss our all-church talent showcase in November!
