Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned singer or just getting started, we would love to have you join in song with us! Our choir meets weekly at 7pm to rehearse. If you have questions, connect with a pastor on staff!


Prior to becoming a member at Oak Lawn UMC, we require that you participate in our membership class wherein we discuss our holistic approach to Christian discipleship using the Oak Lawn Bento Box. Once you have completed the class, we will have quarterly joining Sundays followed by a potluck and celebration! Our schedule for 2020 is as follows:

Join us on Sunday to see if Oak Lawn is the right community for you. We offer a study at 9:30 AM, followed by Traditional Worship at 11:00 AM. At 12:30 PM our Spanish-speaking congregation, Gracia Viva, offers a service. We welcome you to them all! Attire is casual but we do suggest you  plan to arrive a few minutes early, so you can grab a coffee at Union next door!

If you’re unable to join us, watch a sermon online here.
