WELCOME

 

Isn’t it amazing to think about spring?  After a long, cold winter where the ground freezes over and the once-lush trees lie in a state of hibernation, the signs of life appear all around us.  Flowers introduce startling new colors to barren, dusty fields.  Birds sing their lovely songs to welcome in each new day.  Every major league baseball team starts their season with promise and hope.. at least for now.

Perhaps your soul is thirsty and longing for awakening.  Perhaps you’ve gone through a time of spiritual hibernation and God is actively knocking at the door of your heart.  If this is the case for you, I hope you’ll take the next step and respond.

Faith United Methodist Church is a church family dedicated to connecting and reconnecting folks to Jesus Christ.  We are a faith community that gathers together to worship, love, and remind one another that God is alive and still at work offering new life and hope to ordinary people like you and me.

Once again for Lent, the Missions Committee is collecting baby items to be distributed to local agencies serving children and families. Among the items we will be collecting are: diapers, baby wipes, baby wash, onesies (baby t-shirts), diaper ointment, bibs and burp cloths. Look for the baby playpen in the lobby with a list of the items. This project will culminate on April 27 with our Bright Sunday Baby Shower when we will collect traditinal baby shower gifts. The collected items will be distributed to the PASS Pregnancy Care Center, the Crisis Center for South Suburbia and Together We Cope, all in Tinley Park.
