UMCNL, a vibrant faith community, located within the New Lenox Historic Methodist Campground, has celebrated its 181st 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.

A new and exciting way of staying connected

with UMCNL is HERE!  

We have our own UMCNL app that gives us the ability to do many things, including:

        • get push notifications (for alerting to cancelled meeting due to weather, new devotion posting, etc)
        • can give via Pushpay
        • will have a link to the Bible
        • will have a link to our sermons via u-tube


Our next DivorceCare group to start on Tuesday, September 13th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and will continue for 13 weeks here at the church in our downstairs Conference Room.  This group is for those going through/struggling with divorce. The videos and discussions are Bible based and inspiring for all those going through this difficult process. Anyone can join in at any given week, as each session is a self-contained learning experience and does not require having been there from session one to experience the help it provides those going through the difficulties of divorce.  Those that join in part way through the session are welcome to return during the next 13-week group for the session that they have missed.  We even have a few people that have come for more one 13-week group just for the support they experience here and to review what they have learned earlier.
