We are ready to welcome you!

We invite visitors to attend our Sunday morning worship service at 9:15 a.m. When you walk in the door, you will see people of all ages and walks of life, some dressed formally and others casually in jeans and sneakers. Come as you are!

Our greeters and ushers wear name tags, so they are easy to find and they will be happy to help you if you need any assistance or have a question.

We celebrate communion about once every other month. In the spirit of Jesus Christ, and as a congregation in the United Methodist Church, we welcome all (baptized or unbaptized) to partake of this holy sacrament.

We invite you to experience life at Park Forest Village UMC! Whether you are looking for a community, are lonely, searching for the meaning of life, or want to know more about Jesus, our doors are open for you.

Hungry? Need a free meal? Eat alone or with others at our Simply Soup Meal on the last Wednesday of the month.

Check out the rest of the website to learn more about this community of faith.

Upcoming Worship Themes

August 3, Nourishment for the Journey.
Outdoor Worship and Church Picnic. Mid-summer communion will enhance our experience of worshipping God outside, near the playground. (We are prepared to hold activities indoors if the weather is inclement.)The Gospel lesson about Jesus feeding 5,000 people reminds us that Jesus Christ is not overlooking humanitys needs, neither in the moment nor for the future.
August 10, Blue Ocean Strategy.
Matthew 14:22-33. The gospel lesson is the familiar story of Jesus walking on the water and Peter giving it a go. This story sets the stage for another story  how a hardware store became a place of grace. Then we see that a church that walks on water is a church that abandons red oceans for blue oceans of new opportunities. We will also commission Marggie Kozak for the Czech Republic mission trip.
August 17, God in Quiet Mode.
Exodus 1:8-2:10. To help appreciate the story of the birth of Moses, we turn to an anti-virus program. It helps explain how and why God sometimes seems invisible, when in fact God is working on our behalf all the time.
August 24, Gig.
Romans 12:1-8; Sometimes the word "layperson" seems rather lame. But not when you are called by God to transform the world through your daily activities.
