Welcome to the United Methodist Church of New Lenox

UMCNL, a vibrant faith community, located within the New Lenox Historic Methodist Campground, has celebrated its 180th anniversary and is shaping a future where we work to transform the world because our lives have been transformed by Jesus Christ.

 Join us for our 2015 All Church Study, “Loving Generously”, featuring the Donovan Family from our 2014 study, “Living Generously”.

Click here to view the trailer to the video portion of this study to see how the Donovan’s living out their faith causes them to risk long-time friendships as they begin new friendships with those that society casts aside.

We will have a study each day of the week, mostly in the evenings, but a couple in the daytime so that everyone has an opportunity to be a part of this study.  Sign-ups are going on now between services in the Narthex.  Click here and scroll to the bottom of the page for the schedule of classes and list of leaders.
