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

Wednesday, February 10
The Day of the Lord.
Ash Wednesday, 7 p.m. Joel 2:1-2, 12-17; Imposition of Ashes Ash Wednesday is a day to pray, not to feel dismay.

Sunday, February 14
3 Things Jesus Lost in the Wilderness.
1st Sunday in Lent Luke 4:1-13, Holy Communion served at the altar. It was in that vortex of temptation in the desert that Jesus lost some things, but found others. Likewise, when facing temptation, we have to decide what to release and what to grasp.

Sunday, February 21
Do You Have the "Look"?.
2nd Sunday in Lent Luke 13:31-35 & Philippians 3:17-4:1. Some brands are so iconic that everything you want to know about the product is tied into the design, color and font of the packaging. Similarly, Apostle Paul tells us that our lives are translations of the gospel.

Sunday, February 28
The Unsubscribe Problem.
3rd Sunday in Lent 1 Corinthians 10:1-13. Unwanted adverts keep appearing in your inbox. They want you to buy, buy, buy. They tempt you with offers they hope you cannot refuse. But you can resist these online temptations by unsubscribing. Is there a way to "unsubscribe" from spiritual temptations as well?
