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

Our Mission
Providing a place for worship, fellowship, and mission outreach.


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

September 6, #1 Here I Am, Lord.
The most requested hymns from our survey in May will become the focus of a thirteen-week summer sermon series: Hymns We Love. Other hymn titles that were suggested will be sung throughout the worship services. Come and learn how God inspired composers to write heart-stirring hymns and be encouraged to trust God in your walk of faith.
September 13, Quid Pro Quo.
Does God have some kind of reciprocal arrangements with us? We will find an answer from the ancient words of wisdom found in the Book of Proverbs (22:1-2, 8-9, 22-23).
September 20, Stream Living.
Psalm 1  Water rights are often the most important asset a farmer has. This psalm says that Gods children are not located near wells of water but by streams of water, refreshing and productive.
September 27, You are HERE.
We do not always need to know what is going on. This was certainly true for Queen Esther (7:1-6, 9-10; 9:2-22). But this approach does entail an attitude of openness, willingness to take risks, having an attitude of gratitude, and becoming a change agent  skills God uses through people of faith to bless the world.
