A Bit About Us

PUMC is proud of its long history in the downtown Plainfield community.  Since 1866, or just after the Civil War, we have been located at the corner of Chicago and Illinois Streets, just west of Route 59. Our cream-colored stone and two steeples are hard to miss!

PUMC is a busy church! Our calendar is full of activities and programs for people of all ages and interests. At our core, however, is our understanding that we accompany people on their journey.  We offer opportunities for people to learn and grow in grace; worship God with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength; and join together in changing the world for the better.

Who We Are

Here at Plainfield United Methodist, we have a sacred mission: to equip people for a growing relationship with Jesus Christ to serve all. This local congregation is a part of the global United Methodist Church. We share a theological heritage with our brothers and sisters in other Christian denominations. We depend on God's grace as we seek to love God and love our neighbors.

Church Parking

As indicated by the dashed yellow areas on the map below, there is widely available parallel and curb parking conveniently located within a one-block radius of the church. The closest lots are across from the church on the corner of Chicago and Illinois Streets and at the Plainfield Public Library located north and east of the church.
