Visit Northbrook UMC


  • Where are we: We are located at 1190 Western Avenue (corner of Cherry and Western) in Northbrook.
  • Accessibility: Our front entrance is wheelchair accessible and our Sanctuary is equipped with a hearing induction loop system.
  • Sunday Morning: Our worship service is at 10:00 AM and we have communion the first Sunday of the month.
  • Worship: Worship at Northbrook United Methodist Church is textured and traditional, relaxed and relevant.  We are rooted in the tradition but not stuck there.  We sing traditional hymns, as well as world music, praise choruses, and Taizé chants.  Drama, drums, candles, silence, and video also add texture to our worship services.  You can wear a jacket and tie if you want, but jeans and Hawaiian shirts are also welcome.
  • Fellowship:  Each week immediately following worship members of the congregation host coffee hour.  For some, this is as important as worship as a time to socialize and spend time with church family and friend.
  • Care of our young children: Nursery care is always available during worship.  School age children are welcome to join Faith Formation classes.
  • Interfaith Families:  At NUMC we have many families whose backgrounds are diverse.  Pastor Lowly is a member of the Northfield Township Interfaith Coalition.
  • Weekday office hours: The church office is open Monday through Thursday, 8:00 AM through 2:00 PM and closed on Friday’s.
