“Fall Back To Church”  

It’s always good to go back home – to the place where you grew up.
It’s good to be among people who know your name, watched you grow, and loved you along the way.  There’s nothing quite like it.. going home.
 
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.  Assisting others in this 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.
