In 2024, we celebrate 70 years of serving Park Forest and the surrounding community. We have a rich worship tradition anchored in Biblical teachings, an excellent music program, and an unwavering dedication to missions.


From the moment you step into Grace Church, you will feel the warmth and welcome from our congregation. If you are seeking a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, you are welcome here. United Protestant Churches are multi-denominational in nature, and our focus on inclusivity is a hallmark of who we are as a congregation. In fact, we are members of the Reconciling Ministries Network, further affirming our belief that ALL of God's children are welcome and supported in our church. Join us!

Through God’s grace and as apprentices of Christ’s living example, we stand united in our commitment to welcome and embrace the diversity of all children of God, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, and wish to reach out to those underserved to provide a safe space for spiritual growth. We strive to create and foster fairness, justice, peace, love and understanding among all as is reflected in our name – Grace United Protestant Church.
