  • 8:35 LIVE Contemporary Service.  Looking for an alternative to traditional service?  Come join us in the Fellowship Hall for this new and lively service.  Still led by our Pastor, but with more member participation and contemporary Christian Music by our 8:35 LIVE Band.  Then stay for Heavenly Grounds fellowship and refreshments.

  • 9:15 - Upper Room Sunday School Class meets  in our class room on the 2nd floor of the Administrative wing.  Just come into the Monroe St. door, up the stairs, and turn left.  Look for the open door!   You can also join us via Zoom.  Click here.

  • 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.

  • We interrupt our Sermon Series to present a special program - A service of Lessons and Carols!   Join us this Sunday, December 12th as this special program features our own Choir and members of the Virginia Symphony!

    Nov 21 - Dec 19 -  Advent Sermon Series:  "The Heart That Grew Three Sizes."  This series is based on "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!", an iconic story for several generations about a character (the Grinch) whose hatred for Christmas is transformed through the love and acceptance of others.  Come join us as we learn again, the real meaning for the season :  how God put on flesh at he birth of Jesus and how God works in our hearts to grow them 3 sizes or more!    This week's sermon - "When Christmas isn't Christmas,' based on Zechariah 7:9-10; Matthew 3:7b-12.

We ask you to contribute to this worthy cause.

  • 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.  We 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.
