We invite you to join us for a time of Bible study and prayer.  We gather every Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the church dining hall (use the Oakley entrance).  Each week, this informal gathering allows participants to reflect, refresh and renew through the power of the Holy Spirit.

On the last Thursday of the month, the Bible Study meets at Glen Crest Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, located at 2451 W. Touhy, Chicago, IL 60645.  All are welcome.

Ministry Center for Immigrants & Refugees

West Ridge Community UMC is proud to sponsor The Ministry Center for Immigrants & Refugees. Currently a collaboration between our congregation, Indo-Pak UMC, Christ UMC Deerfield and New Lenox UMC, we seek to welcome immigrants and refugees to our neighborhood, city and nation.  We wish to honor the struggles of immigrants and refugees and offer assistance through acts of service as they work hard to build new lives.  Jesus said, "love thy neighbor as thyself," and to this high calling we seek to dedicate ourselves.  Please contact the church office for more information.

This program is made possible in part by a grant from the United Methodist Foundation of the Northern Illinois Conference.
