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.

‘33’ The Series : A Man and His Marriage

There are many important relationships in a man’s life and none deserve more care, focus and investment than his relationship with his wife. Volume 6 lays out an inspiring picture of God’s vision for marriage that will change everything for those of you who are “stuck” and encourage those who are thriving.   This volume equips men with the insights and skills they need to relate to women. Men will learn how to better understand and meet a woman’s deepest needs, how to resolve conflicts, and how to be a servant leader in a way that will re-energize and bring life into his marriage.

10.20 Service Logo with Verse 10-4-14The next 10:20 Worship Service is this Sunday, February 15th 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.
