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.

Upcoming Worship Themes

November 30, Beginning with the End.
Acts 1:8-14. This year we will prepare our hearts for Christmas with Holy Communion in the pews and by looking at Jesus life through Marys eyes. Join us as we begin a five week series on Mary: Not a Silent Night  Mary Looks Back to Bethlehem.
December 7, The Piercing of Marys Soul.
Luke 2:33-35 (Crucifixion). Last week we pondered Mary at around 60 years old, reflecting on the death and resurrection of her son. This week we go back in time, about 15 years before her death, to the day she watched her son die.
December 14, Amazed and Astonished.
Luke 2:41-51 (Teen Jesus in Temple). We visited Mary at her death and, 15 years earlier, at the cross. Now we journey back closer to the date of Jesus birth. She and her husband, Joseph, take their 12-year-old son to Jerusalem.
December 21, Mary, Full of Grace.
Luke 1:26-33 (Annunciation). This week we travel further back in Marys life to age 13 or 14 and to her hometown, the tiny village of Nazareth. It was to this girl that an angel appeared.
