First-time visitors


Welcome to North Northfield United Methodist Church, a historic church located in Northbrook, Illinois. We are a friendly congregation and we greet each visitor and member enthusiastically. North Northfield is a praying, singing, learning, loving and hugging congregation. The powerful preaching and the majestic music help proclaim the good news of the risen Christ. The missions of the church demonstrate our compassionate outreach to the community both locally and globally. The ministries of the church reflect our witness in the world as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Worship is held each Sunday morning at 10:00. Adult Christian Education classes are offered at 8:45 (except summer). Classes are available for all ages and childcare is available for infants and toddlers in the nursery. Following the morning worship service, everyone is invited to enjoy refreshments in the fellowship hall.

The church is located on the northeast corner of Sanders Road and Dundee Road. The parking lot is on the east side of the church and the primary entrance is also on the east side of the church.

For those requiring assistance, there are large-print hymnals and Bibles available, as well as hearing devices and wheelchairs. Please see one of the ushers or greeters if you need any assistance.

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sundays of each month. The Eucharist is typically served by intinction—dipping the bread into the grape juice—and symbolizes the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the redemption of humanity. The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated during the worship service on a Sunday that is most convenient for the family. Because Baptism is the outward and visible sign of the grace of Jesus Christ, infants and adults can partake in this Sacrament of the church.

We are looking forward to seeing you in worship here at North Northfield. It is our prayer that you will experience the presence of God and the power of the Holy Spirit in the worship and ministry of this church.
