breaking news!

  • Update from our Church Health Team.

  • Almost 2000 years ago, in one of his letters to the church at Corinth, Paul included these words (from the NIV): "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong."  Paul's letter could have been addressed to us at our church in Larchmont as we experience another pandemic surge.
    Our church's health team met over the weekend, and we are available for questions.  We believe that that our worship and our smaller groups meeting inside the church can continue to do so, with the provision that all are vigilant about being masked.  We also ask everyone to spread out as much as possible during this time.
    Masks protect not just the wearer but can help protect at-risk people among us.  Removing a mask to drink coffee or eat a quick snack -- only when you are next to people who are in your family group -- is acceptable, but we'll suspend our larger food events for now.
    We hope to continue the work of the church during this time, both on-site and remotely (our participation in live-streamed services has already increased).  It seems likely that we'll be able to host events in the Fellowship Hall beginning in March.
    Meanwhile, as Paul wrote in that same letter:  "Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain!"

A little about Larchmont UMC.

Life at LUMC revolves around family, and we define family very broadly. Our definition includes folks who have been members for decades as well as those who entered our doors only just yesterday. In fact, some of our most active participants are Navy families who will only be with us for a few years during a Norfolk assignment. Others are from the Old Dominion University community, either students or faculty and staff.

We promise that we won’t embarrass you or hound you if you come just to check us out. If, on the other hand, you have a need right now, give us a call at (757) 489-8168 and talk to one of our ministers today.
