WELCOME TO FUMC
Our worshiping congregation is a group of people who are diverse in age, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic situation, and religious background. When we gather, we celebrate that diversity, finding in it a greater understanding of the Divine Mystery. The more diversity we share, the greater the sense of the sacred in our midst.
We worship every Sunday at 10:00 am in a service which shows a great appreciation for the richness of the United Methodist tradition. Music is an important aspect of our worship life, with a wonderful choir during the school year, special music during the summer, and our wonderful Skinner organ weekly through the year. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month, as well as on special occasions through the year. Everyone is welcome at the table.
Sunday services are held at 10 am in the Sanctuary. Fellowship time follows directly after at 11am. All are welcome!
At First United Methodist Church of Oak Park, we believe that faith is a journey, a journey shared in a supportive community.
