New Members

At UMCL, we welcome all people and children of God to a warm, inclusive, friendly community with opportunities to grow, learn, serve and thrive as God intended. The UMCL church family is a diverse group of people of all ages and walks of life and at varying stages in their spiritual journey. We are excited to share this time with you, as you discover more about deepening your faith at UMCL!


Our church family worships God and nurtures one another so that everyone feels they matter and are loved. Programs and ministries available under CONNECT provide a variety of ways for individuals to find a small group that shares a common interest, a curiosity to learn, or a cause that that speaks to them. We believe it is through these presonal connections that people find UMCL the place to call their church home.


There are many ways you can GROW your faith at UMCL and we are here to help and support you on your journey. We provide educational and spiritual discovery programs for children, youth and adults and hope and healing to those looking for more meaning in their lives. We are prepared to meet you where ever you are in journey.


Putting our faith in action is an important part of life at UMCL and we generously support missions and ministries that have local, regional and global IMPACT. Serving others by following the teachings of Jesus Christ is truly rewarding and helps us discover and become who we are truly meant to be.
