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.

If you are looking for a place where your life can be better or where you can help the world be a better place, then join us at the United Methodist Church of New Lenox. We make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Worship with us on Sunday at 9:00 am or 10:45 am. Try our 10:20 service on the 3rd Sunday of the month.  We also hold a Healing and Anointing Service at 10:00 a.m. in the Chapel on the 2nd Sunday of the month from September through May that includes hymns, prayers, scripture readings, reflections, individual prayers, laying on of hands, and anointing with oil for people suffering pain, broken relationships, difficult times, grief and other loss.

Nursery care is provided for infants and toddlers. Sunday School is taught for children of all ages.

10.20 Service Logo with Verse 10-4-14

The next 10:20 Worship Service is this Sunday, June 21st at 10:20 a.m. in the Chapel.

The 10:20 Worship Service has a new look! In keeping with plans to update, refresh and refocus this ministry, the 10:20 team is developing new marketing strategies to let community know that there is an alternative place where you can “Come As You Are” and experience the Word, Love and Grace of God.

This is a great opportunity to invite friends, neighbors or coworkers that are looking for an alternative style of worship, or are simply searching for answers. And if you haven’t seen what we’re up to lately, come on by for a cup of coffee and a little fellowship!

Everyone needs to belong somewhere, to someone.  You may not know it, but the truth is, God has already claimed you as His. God’s Grace and Love are there for the taking – every second of every day.
