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


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

March 1, El Shaddai: God All-Sufficient.
Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16 (Gods covenant with Abraham and Sarah). What would the world be like if there were no concept of binding promises and agreements? God's promise means we can trust that what God intends will, in fact, come to pass.
March 8, The Sign of the Cross.
1 Corinthians 1:18-25 (Christ the Power and Wisdom of God). The handicapped sign is getting a makeover. This reminds us of the importance of logos, signs and symbols. Christians have an important sign. Does it, too, need a makeover?
March 15, Mercy and Graced to Life!.
Ephesians 2:1-10 (From Death to Life). Hotels, airlines and rental car agencies are the worst with hidden fees. But, if you read the small print in Ephesians 2, you'll find nothing but free stuff that God offers, including mercy and grace!
March 22, How to Select Your Ethics Setting.
Jeremiah 31:31-34 (A New Covenant). Some have suggested that robot cars should have the option to adjust the ethics settings to reflect his or her own moral compass. In today's text, we learn that God decides to tweak the ethics settings in us mortals. Read on to see how it was done.
