You are welcome to Skokie Central United Methodist Church! Come and join us any Sunday morning at 10:30 am for an open, welcoming worship service. A comfortable sanctuary where you can see Pastor Timothy Biel Jr. and listen to his insightful, relevant sermons. Meet friendly people and sample some of what Skokie Central UMC has to share:

  • The 10:30 am Classic Service features music from the Chancel Choir led and accompanied by Millete Silverio, various other musicians, song leaders, special guests and an enthusiastic congregation. At Skokie Central UMC, we feel our congregational voice – in prayer, in song, in praise – is important, strong and vibrant.

  • Holy Communion served weekly. With Skokie’s wonderfully diverse community, Communion crosses all cultural barriers since all are welcome at Skokie Central UMC's Communion table.

When you’re ready, we look forward to getting to know you! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of our friendly church administrators Doris Bloom, Pam Castaneda at 847-673-1311 or centralchurch@skokiecentralumc.org.
