Greetings from Pastor Bill
Welcome to The United Methodist Church of Antioch webpage.  We are a church community that has been worshipping at this site since 1901.
Please browse the different tabs to see what we are about.  The Methodist motto of Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors is practiced here.  We look forward to meeting you on Sunday mornings either at our 8:00 or 10:30 a.m worship times.  Come as you are, our Lord and this congregation are waiting to welcome you.
Pastor Bill Landis 
A SPECIAL THANK YOU; 
to everyone for your prayers, support, and generosity during our family’s difficult time. Ellie is doing so much better and is making great progress! She will continue to need injections of blood thinners at least until June when she will have another MRI to confirm that the blood clot is gone. We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of love from our church family and it has been reconfirmed that we have found our home at UMCA! 
Love, Matt, Angie, Ellie, Sophie, & Matty Savers.

CHICAGO UPTOWN MINISTRY is a part of Lutheran Child and Family Services. Many of you remember last year we collected supplies for Marie, the Parish Nurse who serves the homeless community there. She has asked if we can again collect hygiene items for her. Please use a gallon size Ziploc bag and fill with items such as: soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, socks, small washcloth, comb, anything else you think could be needed. I will have a box at both churches for your donations and will plan to deliver these to her by June 10th. She can also use new men's or women's underwear (any size)--if you want to bring this, please just put separately in the boxes. Thanks for your help!
NURSERY CARE:
