At Faith United Methodist Church, we believe that God is waiting for us all to come home. No matter who we are, whether we’ve been a part of a church for many seasons (or none), God who created us, knows us, and loves us.
Of course, coming home to God is not simply attending a worship service or joining a church. Churches do not take the place of God. However, churches can play a significant role in this journey. Awakening weary spirits and assisting others in their journey, as we proceed along this journey ourselves.. this is our mission – our hope – our calling.
Faith is a congregation with roots in three local congregations. These congregations (from Midlothian, Oak Forest, and Orland Park) gave up their former names and buildings to become a church that can continue the mission of Jesus Christ – serving as His hands and feet in the world.
