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!”

United Women in Faith Collection for Our Neighbors in Need

Helping people during difficult times in their lives is what Jesus has taught us as Christians to do! Help us support two needful families from our community school district during Thanksgiving and Christmas!

The monetary donations and checks (payable to United Women in Faith) we collect will provide food and other needs for these families. And, in the holiday spirit, we can provide some joy and happiness for them! Your monetary donations may be placed in the UWF donation box at the information station any time during November and December! Thank you for your continued generous donations!

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, January 5 at 7:00PM.

Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.

All are welcome.

Because we care deeply about the health and safety of our congregation, we prefer that everyone wear a mask during worship. Worship leaders unmask themselves when they lead worship by reading, speaking, and singing. We will continue to livestream our services on YouTube and Facebook.
