COVID-19 Updates

Due to an increase in cases locally and statewide, LaPorte UMC has decided to move our Sunday worship services (11am) fully online. Only those directly involved with the service will be allowed into the sanctuary.

Please visit our YouTube channel to access our service at 11am on Sunday mornings.

Small groups (10 people or less) that normally meet within the congregation are still allowed to meet at the church. Masking and social distancing guidelines must be followed. Contact your group leader for more updates or if you have questions. Please click here for further guidelines on in-person meetings.

Please click here for guidelines regarding in-person services in the sanctuary that will be in effect when we return to in-person services.

Welcome to LaPorte United Methodist Church!

Welcome to LaPorte UMC!!! We hope and pray God will use our church to greatly bless you. May you find our congregation to be a community where you can experience God’s love and presence.

We invite you to explore the life-giving opportunities God is offering through our church. Our desire is that you would join us for worship and other nurturing opportunities that will help you grow closer to God and others. We also invite to learn about the ways you can partner with us as we seek to be witnesses of the transforming love and power of God in the world.

We hope your interaction with us will be enriching as you experience God’s presence in our midst.
