welcome

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 2, United Methodist Women Sunday.
UMW Members will lead the worship service.
November 9, The Power of the Hidden Influencer.
All Saints Sunday (observed), Matthew 25:1-13. In most organizations, including the church, there are certain individuals who might be called "hidden influencers." We speculate that within the two groups of today's gospel text (the wise & the foolish) there might have been hidden influencers, too.
November 16, Silicon Faith.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11. For a long time, we've been enamored with just about anything that comes out of the Silicon Valley. We love its products& In short, we have silicon faith. We put our trust in technology. Our Bible lesson for today challenges us -- not to throw our techie toys in the trash -- but to reexamine whether our faith is properly focused.
November 23, The Great Gates of Praise.
Psalm 100. Some of the greatest sites and cities in the world are entered through famous gates. The greatest gate is the one that leads us into the presence of God with praise! We will be meeting in the Prism for our annual Thanksgiving Love Feast  muffins, breakfast beverages, fellowship and worship. And, check out the new sound system!
