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


Little children often ask how many days until Christmas? The question is reminiscent of those long road trips when kids are constantly asking when will we get there?  Anticipation and excitement are positive things! Unfortunately, as adults we are too rushed and distracted to experience miracles in our midst…even the miracle of Christmas. Advent is a time to stop and take a breath. It is a time to wait, anticipate, and prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus.

We all long to experience Christ in Christmas – Immanuel – God with us. This year, how can we revisit the familiar Christmas story and see it in a fresh new way? How can we open our hearts and expect the unexpected? Join us in worship this season as we unwrap Advent, open our hearts, re-tell the stories, and share the gift of Christ with others.

December 2: Unwrapping Advent

Hi! Thanks for visiting! If you are not familiar with Methodism, we tend to be moderate, tolerant, and inclusive -- our doors are open to everyone. And we stay busy serving our community as the hands and feet of Christ, without judgement.  We accept all baptisms and have an open table for Holy Communion. We believe in the sacred nature of the Bible, but we are not afraid to ask questions of God. We will not tell you how to vote, but we will challenge you with the radical teachings of Jesus Christ. Established in 1955, we continue to be a vital part of the North Little Rock community we love so dearly.

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.
