Join us for worship every Sunday at 9:15 a.m., and at 10:35 a.m. for Sunday School. (Sept.–May)


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.

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

upcoming worship themes

We walk with Jesus and the disciples with participation in the Lords Supper and remembering the gathering darkness of the his Passion (trial, crucifixion, and burial).
April 5, Easter Sunday: Lincoln and the Lord.
(Services: 7:15 a.m., with Holy Communion; and 9:15 a.m.) This coming Friday marks the 150th anniversary of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. He was shot on Good Friday, April 14, 1865. The parallels between Lincoln's life and death and that of Jesus of Nazareth are uncanny, but with at least one important difference!

Arlene raised five children and is a grandmother to sixteen, and great-grandmother to thirteen.
