Who We Are

Lenexa UMC is an inviting, welcoming, caring, growing, inclusive community.

Lenexa United Methodist Church has been a cornerstone of Lenexa since 1869. Today, you will find high-quality children’s and youth programs, vibrant adult Sunday School opportunities, an award-winning preschool, and a multitude of outreach partnerships here. Lenexa UMC offers the hospitality and warmth of a small church with the programs of a larger congregation.

LUMC is committed to being a faithful witness to God’s kingdom in Johnson County. We serve our Lenexa neighbors through partnership with the Johnson County multi-service center food pantry and various other outreach ministries. Each Wednesday from 5:30-6:30 p.m. we serve a free community meal to our neighbors through a curbside meal. We welcome all who join us in worship and service

we welcome ALL.

As a member of the Reconciling Ministries Network, Lenexa UMC celebrates that all persons are created in God’s image and are of sacred worth. Our faith compels us to welcome and affirm persons of all ages, cultures, economic statuses, family blends, ethnic backgrounds, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, and physical and mental abilities.


We publicly affirm to intentionally minister to, with, and for all persons, and to provide a safe and caring community where all may grow in their faith as we discover the depth of God’s love for everyone.

We know and love God

revealed in Jesus Christ, through worship, study and service.

We follow Jesus

in loving neighbors and working for a just society.

We are the body of Christ

an inviting, welcoming, caring, growing, inclusive community; joyfully supported by prayer, presence, gifts, service and witness.
