It may sound trite, but expanding and increasing your faith is a marathon, not a sprint. If you have a desire to grow spiritually, we're here to support you! We have special programming for women, men, and youth, plus a weekly virtual Bible study led by Pastor Amos and open to all! 


Do you have a desire to better understand the teachings of the Bible? Join Pastor Amos and members of his congregations of both Grace UP Church and First UMC of Oak Lawn every Tuesday at 7 p.m. for a virtual Bible study! You are welcome to contribute or simply listen and reflect. Anyone who wishes to join us is welcome.


For most of our 70 years, we have had a very active Women's Christian Association (WCA). Any woman is welcome to join us, even if you are not a member of our church. Learn more about all WCA offers by clicking below!


The men of our church get together each week on Tuesday mornings at 8 a.m. at Big Apple Pancake House in Chicago Heights for Chat and Chew, a longstanding tradition at Grace. Conversation ranges from family to philosophical, and everything in between. Any man who wishes to join us is welcome! No sign-up necessary - just show up!
