  • 8:30 - Children's Nursery for parents attending Sunday School and Church Service hours are 9:00-11:30am for children aged 3 and under.

  • 9:30 - Coffee Talk Sunday School Class meets in the Parlor (timing  enables you to attend whether you attend 8:35 LIVE or our traditional 10:30 Service).  We start this week with a short study called "So Long, Normal" (sounds appropriate, yes?).  Any and all adults are invited and welcome to attend for a lively discussion.  Of course, coffee will be available!  Click here to learn more about the study.

  • 10:30 am - Traditional Sunday Service in our Sanctuary.  If you can't join us in-person, join us via your computer, tablet, or smart phone Click here.  

    Current SERMON SERIES (Sep 19-Nov 7):  Journey - In the Faith Steps of Abraham and Sarah. Together, we'll discover  Faith is not just a momentary or single act of trust.  Nor is it something you get at the beginning of the Christian Life.  Faith is a life-long process that continually exerts demands on us at every stage and challenge of life--from childhood to old age;  from school to work to retirement; and in joy and sorrow.  This series explores Abraham's journey of faith through life's many seasons.  Next  Sunday's sermon - "Blessed to be a Blessing"  (Genesis 12:1-3).

  • Take our Worship Service Survey!  Your feedback will help us meet your needs!  Our recently approved Strategic Plan calls for two worship services each Sunday: 1) an 8:35 am contemporary Worship Service and 2) a 10:30 am traditional Worship Service.  Both will be offered in-person and via live stream.  To better meet your worship needs, we are asking everyone to take a short survey on various aspects of both services.  Please complete the survey between October 17 and October 31.  There are several ways to complete the survey:

    • Online click here
    • Paper copy - available in the Narthex during worship, in the church office, or have a copy mailed to you by calling the church office at (757) 489-8168
    • Via telephone by calling the church office to request a return phone call to answer the survey questions (specify preferred and alternate date/time).
  • Our Pumpkin Patch is in full "bloom!"   Pumpkins will  be available through October, 10am - 6pm Monday - Saturday and noon - 7pm Sundays.  Come and adopt one or more pumpkins!  Baked goods are also available.  Make sure visiting our Pumpkin Patch is on your calendar.

  • Good News about our Church’s Worship and Activities!   After considering CDC guidance and church facilities, our LUMC PRG (Post-COVID Reentry Group) determined our church remains able safely to continue in-person worship and other activities.  For the time being we continue to ask worshipers and those meeting at our church to mask-up (do your part).  LUMC will not mandate mask-wearing, but asks that you be considerate of others by wearing a mask when indoors The PRG will continue to make the health of our members and guests a priority, periodically assess the COVID environment, and keep you updated.  Welcome back!

A little about Larchmont UMC.

Life at LUMC revolves around family, and we define family very broadly. Our definition includes folks who have been members for decades as well as those who entered our doors only just yesterday. In fact, some of our most active participants are Navy families who will only be with us for a few years during a Norfolk assignment. Others are from the Old Dominion University community, either students or faculty and staff.

We promise that we won’t embarrass you or hound you if you come just to check us out. If, on the other hand, you have a need right now, give us a call at (757) 489-8168 and talk to one of our ministers today.
