The mission of First UMC of Oak Lawn is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

We are a prophetic voice for justice and compassion for all people as children of God.
We provide hospitality to groups, events, and programs that build mind, body, and spirit, and make the church known to the people of the Oak Lawn area. We reach out and share our lives and our resources to meet the physical needs of our neighbors and the world, and to encourage all people to come to know Jesus Christ as Lord, savior and friend.

Mission with Youth with Disabilities:  Friendship Fridays

Mission with the Homeless:  PADS

Mission with the Hungry: Food Pantries

Local and regional Mission Projects & Trips:  Service Projects
