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

October 5, The Permanent Directive.
World Communion (altar) and Infant Baptism. A new innovation in printing uses water instead of ink, making the words temporary and the paper reusable. In the "Great Commandment," Matthew 22:34-46, Jesus offers words that are both permanent and reusable.
October 12, Pithy Principles in Philippians.
Principles that have been instilled in us from birth fail us on occasion. This takes us to our text, Philippians 4:1-9, full of pithy principles. And, with help from a former CIA analyst, we come to some conclusions that keep us moving forward as Gods children.
October 19, The Inviting God.
God has invited us to the dance, so why is it often so hard to accept? We begin with the world's largest church (according to Guinness World Records). It's in Africa and holds 18,000 people. And virtually no one attends. This reminds us of the king who opened a banquet hall to host a party, and no one came. The king was not happy  Matthew 22:1-14.
October 26, Reformation in the 21st Century.
Guest speaker, the Rev. J. Marlyn Rimert. Habakkuk 1:1-4 and Luke 17:1-10.
