The Wilton Center (IL) Federated Church, a vibrant but small rural congregation anticipates the arrival of her next pastor. The church envisions a man or woman of God who influences the church and community in what matters most in life through constant, faithful, Christ-like spiritual direction. This servant of the Word will not only be called and equipped by the Triune God to preach, pastor and shepherd, but will also be wired to thrive in a rural setting where relationships matter.
The Wilton Center Federated Church likes to have a good time, as evidenced by the nearly 400 people who attended the annual Pork Dinner and the thirty children who attend AWANA. The congregation will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2019. On the way to and beyond that celebration, this congregation of United Methodists and American Baptists is committed to knowing, experiencing, and demonstrating God’s love by sharing it freely, growing in it faithfully, expressing it joyfully, enjoying it completely, and living it daily.
The beautiful and inviting facility of the congregation has a Manhattan, IL address but located in Wilton Center, an unincorporated community in southern Will County. It is fifteen miles northeast of Kankakee and south of Frankfort. Wilton Center is served by the Peotone school district. The world-class city of Chicago is but an hour away, and rail transit is available from the region.
