The six-session study begins with foundational questions such as, How and when was the Bible written? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? How literally must we read it? And, is the Bible ever wrong? In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical thems leading you to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.

    10:30 am - Traditional Sunday Service in our Sanctuary.   Or, if you can't join us in-person, join us on-line via your computer, tablet, or smart phone Click here.

  • Our Worship Series - Witness of the Resurrection (Through May 29)

    following the Resurrection, Jesus made appearances to many before he ascended (Meeting with two believers on the road to Emmaus [left], for example).  Even in  his physical and risen presence, many were confused about what had happened and what this could mean for them.  We too often witness evidence of the risen Lord today, but are blind to what this means.  What does Jesus intend for us to do with this message of good news?  What difference does it make in our lives and world?  the lesson for May 15th  is "Competing Stories" based on Matthew 28:11-20.

  • Breakthrough Prayer

    God, please break through the barriers we set up, and show us how to become the vibrant, engaging, inclusive church community you call us to be.  Amen.
    Our Breakthrough Prayer Initiative is a way to be transformed by asking God to miraculously breakthrough anything that is getting in the way of renewing our mind’s ability to discover God’s will for our church, both as individuals and collectively; how we transform from a Christian organization to a Christian Movement.
    We ask everyone to pray our Breakthrough Prayer every day, at least once, at either 11:01 am or pm wherever you find yourself.
    We, collectively, will say the prayer during each worship service.  We are also asking all group to include our Breakthrough  Prayer, not in-place of,  but as part of opening prayers at any meeting.  You can either use the card as a way to focus or pray from memorization.  One thing we don’t want to have happen is for the prayer to become rote or inward focused.

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.
