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

September 21, G-Rations.
Every soldier since the beginning of time has complained about his or her field rations, whether it's C-Rations, MREs, Long Range Patrol Meals (LRPs) or manna and quail (Exodus 17:1-11). Soldiers learn to add a little spice and remember that it's all about the mission. How does God sustain us for the journey of life? Acknowledgement Sunday: Lay Leadership Committee.
September 28, The Upside of Giving Up.
"Winners never quit and quitters never win." Vince Lombardi of football may have been referring to the importance of perseverance. Sometimes, the right thing to do is quit. In Jesus parable of the two sons and the vineyard (Matthew 21:23-32), we see that often it is the quitters, the ones willing to change, who lead the way into the kingdom of God. We will look at a couple of hints to knowing when to give up.
