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 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.
August 31, Finding Holy Ground.
Exodus 3:1-15. It's easy not to notice when we are on holy ground, but when we do, we should neither explain it away nor enshrine it. Cases in point: Moses and the burning bush and Peter and the Transfiguration.
September 7, The Christian Textbook.
Textbooks can be confusing, especially when the subject is math. Is it any easier teaching morals? The apostle Paul gives it a try (Romans 13:8-14), and we can benefit from his efforts. Blessing of Backpacks and dedication of Sunday School staff will be a part of the service.
September 14, Don't Vex the Vegans.
Food fights  they are rather messy. It is now a well-known part of the culture wars: vegans v. carnivores. So we begin with examples of this "war" in our culture, and then move to a similar situation described in today's scripture lesson (Romans 14:1-12), where the apostle tackles the "vegan" problem head-on.
