worship instrument

United Methodist Church of Livonia is a faith family, formed from diverse backgrounds, bound together with a common desire to follow Jesus Christ.  When you worship with us, you will experience lots of singing, unison prayers, reading the Word, and a message.  We hope you come with your whole family and share in how God is moving in all of our lives.  Come early and join us for breakfast, 8 – 9:00 AM.




Worship Servicestraditional church

We offer two weekly Sunday worship services.  The services are similar, but different.  We gather to praise God in both services, but the music and “feel” of the services will vary.  Regardless of the service, we are a singing congregation.  All are welcome and invited to join with us in worshiping God.

  • Traditional Service, 9:00 AM – The morning message will be exactly what you need to start your week out right.  In the traditional service we sing hymns and choruses accompanied by either the century old pipe organ or piano.  Our pipe organ has been used continuously for over 100 years and was rebuilt by Parsons Pipe Organ Builders, Bristol, NY when it was moved to our new building in 2008.   Other music includes the choir and/or special music.  Occasionally the pastor ministers with his guitar and a song.  See photos
  • If you are looking for a more contemporary service the 10:30 AM service is for you. Our extended worship, led by the praise team, helps to bring everyone to one accord. The message is the same as the traditional service, but the “feel” is not. The praise team leads in a blend of contemporary, gospel and some traditional music with guitar, keyboard, drum and other instruments.  See photos
  • Listen to the service – radio broadcast (delayed one week), 8 – 8:30 AM, WYSL 1040


communion tableCommunion

Communion is offered on the first Sunday of each month.  UMCL practices an “open table,” meaning that all are welcome to come to Christ’s table and share in communion.  You do not need to be a member of our church, or any church to take communion.  All that is required is that you wish to grow in your love and knowledge of Christ.  It is the risen and present Christ that calls you to the table, not a church or a pastor.
