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!
Join us for a wonderful Holy Week as we journey to Easter with Jesus.
On Palm Sunday, March 25, all the kids will parade with palm branches and a real donkey!
Our Maundy Thursday service of Holy Communion is at 6 pm on March 29. It's a service that commemorates the Last Supper and Jesus' final commandment: To love each other as much as He loves us.
On March 30, our Good Friday Tenebrae service is also at 6 pm. A "tenebrae" is an ancient Christian worship service that makes use of gradually diminishing light to symbolize the events of Holy Week as Jesus is crucified and buried. It's an important preparation for the joy of Easter.
On April 1, we'll have very special Easter services at our regular times and locations. Traditional worship is held at both 9 and 11 am in our beautiful mid-century sanctuary. On the contemporary side, our 9 am "Blue Jean" service in Wesley Hall is our largest (actually, you can wear blue jeans to any service!). And our 11 am "illumination" service is a relaxed and informal service in Gibson Hall.
And again this year, we're proud to host the North Little Rock Community Sunrise Service, at 6:30 am in Lakewood Village. There will be special music by a brass quintet, a gospel quartet, and our own Annie Zimmerman will provide a special vocal performance!
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....
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.
