What is Canopy? Canopy is a gathering place at Oak Lawn UMC for young adults who are seeking answers, asking questions, and yearning for respite. Each day will be centered around a conversation topic, coffee, and snacks. Like how Canopies in rainforests are places where energy from the sun is gathered and refuge is found, Canopy is a place to unplug from the stress of life to engage in life-giving conversation about our faith and passion while relaxing, meeting new friends, and learning more about each other and God.
