Who We Are

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.

Plan to hang around after the service for fellowship and meeting new people.  
 

What To Expect

umcl fellowship after church service
You should expect to be warmly greeted in a casual atmosphere and to feel right at home on your first visit. You’re certain to find friendly people who are ready to help you find your way. If this is your first visit, please let a greeter know because we have a gift for you.

Generally coffee is available.

Entering the sanctuary, an usher may direct you to seating, or you may find a seat where you feel most comfortable.  Some COVID restrictions may apply and will be posted as you enter the building.


What is the worship service like?

A typical service will last about 60 minutes. We sing a good mix of contemporary and traditional music that is led by our worship team.   Scripture, corporate readings, and a message from Pastor Hoyt focus our attention on worshiping the Lord and preparing us for the week ahead.  We gather to praise God.  All are welcome and invited to join with us in worshiping God. Whether you’ve been to a church before or not, you’ll find the worship service is simple to follow, the teachings are meaningful, thoughtful and relevant to your life.  
Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month and all are welcome to the  (communion)Table.

Baptism

The Bible says that all professing Christians should be baptized (Matthew 28:18-20).  In Baptism we are welcomed and incorporated into the community of faith, and receive the promise of the Spirit that re-creates and transforms us. We baptize persons of all ages, including  infants.  We baptize either by sprinkling (most common)  pouring, or immersion.

Communion

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.
