Welcome to Lakewood United Methodist Church of North Little Rock, Arkansas!

Lakewood UMC has been a loving, busy and happy member of the North Little Rock family for over 60 years. Generations of families have attended worship here, experienced our wonderful programs for children and youth, and joined together to serve our community in many ways. Please visit one of our four worship services any Sunday!

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14. It is a 40-day period of spiritual growth, repentance, and reflection that leads us to Easter Sunday, April 1.  Lent gives us an opportunity to focus on what we truly believe, and why.

In the early days of the Christian church, converts were prepared during Lent for their baptisms on Easter Sunday, and the Apostle‚Äôs Creed was used as a central part of that preparation. It was and is a succinct statement of the Christian faith.  We'll be examining the Apostle's Creed in detail on Sundays and Wednesday nights (6 pm in Gibson Hall) during Lent to understand what and why we believe what we do about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Forgiveness of Sins, and more.

As a Christian, it's important to actually know the teachings of Christ for yourself. We're also challenging our congregation to read through the four Gospels -- Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John -- during the 40 days of Lent. To receive a few verses each day via email, subscribe here.

Joyful Worship

We offer four different worship services on Sunday, to give you a choice. We have traditional services at 9 and 11 am in our sanctuary.  Our contemporary services are the Blue Jean Service at 9 am in Wesley Hall and the 11 am illumination service in Gibson Hall.  Learn more....

Serving Others

We recently packed over 50,000 meals for local food pantries on a single Sunday. We host homeless women and children at our church. We helped found the Ozark Mission Project, a summer camp for teens who build wheelchair ramps and repair homes for our neighbors in need. And there's more, much more.

Family Programs

No matter what your age or stage of life, we offer faith development, friendship, and opportunities to expand the light. Learn more about our programs for children, youth, and adults, as well as our fee-based AfterCare Express program and our Mother's Day Out programs for busy parents.
