Join Us! Lent, Holy Week & Easter

This Lent, we will journey through a new worship series called: Wandering Heart: Figuring Out Faith with Peter.

In this worship series, we will focus on the life and faith of one of Jesus’ most famous disciples: Peter. In Peter, we often see ourselves. Like many of us, Peter has a wandering heart.

By following Peter’s journey, we want to affirm that faith is a constant journey of steadfast pursuit, seeking and wandering. We want to affirm that wandering is exploration, not necessarily distance from God. When you look closely at Peter’s story, you find Jesus at each step along the way offering him love.

This Lent, we will look for ourselves in Peter’s story. We will reflect on the stages of our own faith journeys as well as who and what has shaped us along the way.  Along with weekly worship service, we have provided Devotional Booklet and Daily Devotional Cards for your own reflection.

We’re glad you’re here.

All belong and will be loved in The UMC. All will be heard, respected, and engaged. All will be free to develop their personal relationship with God and to serve fully in the ministry of Jesus Christ.

We are a Reconciling Congregation and welcome persons of all ages, racial and ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, socio-economic conditions, physical and mental abilities, and family status.

Signs of Friendship

We have long been aware that our sign is an important part of Friendship Church’s community identity. It’s not unusual for someone to call and thank us for a specific message that helped or inspired them. When explaining just which church we are, saying “the church with the sign” always does the trick!

Friendship United Methodist Church is located along a busy east-west main road in Bolingbrook, Illinois. Thousands of people pass by on a daily basis. To catch their attention, we have put up a sign along the road, visible from both the east bound and the west bound lanes.

This sign highlights events that take place at Friendship but we also use it to make people think, to chuckle a bit, or to reflect quietly on the wonder of God. A simple phrase or two can lighten the day, relieve the stress and strain of daily living, and put people in touch with the Lord. Visitors and new members often comment that one of the things that made them first take notice of Friendship Church was “The Sign!”

You’re Invited!

Praying with the Songs of Taizé and Silence

Taizé Worship Services will be held on the first Friday of every month at 7:00PM. The characteristic of Taizé worship has been the use of a simple line of songs in repetitive and meditative ways of praying. Another characteristic of Taizé worship is its generous use of silence. This style of worship may enrich our prayer life and we may have a more meditative way of living in our daily lives. The next service will be on Friday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m.

Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.

All are welcome.
