I'm New


The mission of Laverne UMC is to share God’s love and bring hope to the world. We accomplish that by sharing the message of Christ, growing in our faith, and serving the community.

It’s not easy to visit a church for the first time, please see the below information as a way to help.

Arrival: If it’s your first time, we recommend arriving 10 minutes prior to the worship start time. That will give you enough time to park, and find a seat before the service begins.

Dress: Laverne UMC welcomes everyone just as they are. Some people dress up and others dress very casually. We encourage you to come the way that you feel most comfortable.

During the Service: Each service is different, but you can always expect inspiring music and a message of hope. As part of the service we take up an offering. If you are a guest, please do not feel any pressure or obligation to give. This is an act of worship for our regular attendees, allowing them to thank God for all of the great work He is doing in their lives.

Children’s Ministry: We understand how precious your children are and we take great care to make sure that they are safe at all times. When you drop off and pick up your kids it is our goal to make you and your child feel safe and loved. They are welcome to be in the sanctuary for church or in the nursery whatever you prefer. All children are invited to the steps at the front for Children's Moment wherever they may be watching from.  Also, every environment is supervised by qualified volunteers who have submitted to background checks and have been cleared by our staff.

Guest Information: As a guest, you will be encouraged to fill out a registration form during worship, this helps us to stay in communication with you and let you know about all of the exciting things happening at Laverne UMC throughout the year. This is completely optional and not at all required.
