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

 Back to School Blessings at Lakewood Methoidst Church North Little ROck AR

Back-to-School Sunday is August 12!



Sunday, August 12 will be a wonderful day overflowing with blessings for young and old alike as we send students back to school covered in love.  Students of all ages are encouraged to come (bringing their backpacks if they want) to any of our four services for a special blessing from one of our pastors. We'll have a photo booth set up so parents can take pictures of their kids, too! #toocute #backtoschoolsunday #blessingofthebackpacks



 HUman prayer chain from Lakewood Methodist Church to Lakewood elementary school, North little ROCK ARKANSas



At 10 am that Sunday, we'll form our Human Prayer Chain running all the way from the doors of Lakewood Methodist Church to the doors of Lakewood Elementary School as we together pray for all the students, teachers and administrators who are once again beginning a new school year.  Inside, we'll also be collecting donations for the weekend food program for those Lakewood Elementary students who suffer from food insecurity. 






Cara Chapman joins LUMC as illumination worship leader!

Cara first performed at Lakewood as part of Applied Light Wednesday night coffeehouse. She sold copies of her CD, Love Light, to help pay the costs for her and husband Stephen to adopt their daughter Mia from Colombia (they also have a son, Caleb).  Cara's music is described as “unique blend of country, pop, rock, and singer-songwriter musical influences.”  About her music, Cara says “I pray these songs are a comfort, a challenge, and a blessing to every person who hears them. That my honest sharing of my highs and lows, and how that intertwines with my faith, help others to find the beauty in their own journey. That these songs help others to be open and vulnerable and live their dreams as well.”

Please join Cara in illumination worship every Sunday at 11 am in Gibson Hall.

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.
