Worship With Us

One Worship Service at 10 a.m. on Sundays

One Spirit, inspired, full of life, vibrant, touching the heart. By gathering in one place at the same time for worship, we pray we will celebrate who our God is and whom we are called to be in a more unified spirit as we seek to grow in the knowledge of God through loving, learning, and serving. Join us in-person or online on YouTube and Facebook.

Friendship Center

The Friendship Center is where we share the love: baking goodies or making up a tray of fresh fruit for the coffee fellowship time that follows Sunday morning worship. This is located right outside of the Sanctuary. If you would like to contribute, just tell one of the servers in the kitchen and they will gladly offer a date.

Health Update

Because of improved health conditions, we are no longer requiring or recommending that everyone wear a mask in worship. We are grateful that you want to worship with us, and we respect and welcome you, with or without a mask.

Taize Worship

Taizé Worship Services will be held on the first Friday of every month at 7:00 p.m. 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. Everyone is welcome to join us.

Holy Communion

Holy Communion is served to all on the first Sunday of the month. We practice “open table” meaning no one is excluded from receiving the elements of bread and juice which represent the body and blood of Jesus Christ. If you accept Jesus in your heart, you are welcome to partake in communion at Friendship Church.

During First Sunday, a special Celebration Offering is taken in addition to the regular offering, its purpose is to pay forward a special blessing to those in need, in the name of the extra blessing God placed in your life. Envelopes are provided for you to personally name your blessing.

On Food Pantry Sunday, worshipers are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items that will help stock local food pantries shelves. Food items are distributed to our West Suburban Food Pantry in Woodridge. Stay tuned to the bulletin and eFocus for more information.

Plan your visit.

We know that attending a new church can feel a bit overwhelming. At Friendship, our goal is to make you feel welcome, regardless of where you may be on your faith journey.

Here’s what you need to know:

Everyone is welcome! You’ll experience both contemporary and traditional music, a hope-filled message, and an invitation to join in communion.

We’re excited to meet you, but we won’t call you out in front of the congregation. Be prepared for some friendly faces to introduce themselves, though!

When should I arrive?

We recommend arriving a little early so you can park, find a seat, and meet someone new. If you have children, this will give you time to check out the nursery or Sunday school rooms.

What should I wear?

Wear whatever makes you comfortable! You will not be out of place in jeans and a t-shirt, a dress, or a suit and tie.

Where can I learn more about what you believe?

Please read by visiting the About Us webpage and visit The United Methodist Church website.

Do you have a nursery?

Yes. The nursery is available for children newborn to age 2. Our mission is to provide a safe, secure environment where our infants and toddlers can be cared for in Christian love as they explore and play.

Do I have to give in the offering?

No. If you are a visitor to Friendship, we don't want you to feel any obligation to participate in the offering.

Do I have to wear a mask?

Because of improved health conditions, we are no longer requiring or recommending that everyone wear a mask in worship.  We are grateful that you want to worship with us, and we respect and welcome you, with or without a mask.

What if I have additional questions?

Please email info@friendshipbolingbrook.org or call us at 630-972-1011. We would love to hear from you!

Panera Bread Available on Sundays

Panera Bread is available every Sunday following the service in the Friendship Center. “Leftovers” are picked up from Panera on Saturdays and donated to the church. The selection varies from week to week and can include a plethora of bagels, soup bowls, baguettes, sweets, sliced bread, loaves of bread, coffee cakes, cookies, and muffins. Anyone who comes to the 10:00 a.m. service is welcome to partake on a first come, first serve basis. If there is an abundance of “donations,” we have several church members that will distribute to other community entities. Everyone is welcome to take as much as they need, remembering that Panera does not use preservatives so the shelf life is limited.
