After worship and fellowship
Sunday School classes are provided for all age groups in keeping with our belief that one is never too young or too old for Bible Study. A nursery is available during this time.
Our Adult Class meets in the Chapel. The class is on a rotating teacher schedule using our United Methodist literature.
Children / Teen classes are divided into three age groups: 3yr to pre-K, Elementary, and Youth. All teaching materials are age-appropriate. The teachers for the Children and Youth Classes have all gone through LUMC’s Safe Sanctuaries training.
Nursery services are provided for both the 10:00 Worship Service and 11:15 Sunday School. All nursery volunteers have gone through LUMC’s Safe Sanctuaries training.

We are to minister in Christ’s name to the needy, the sick, the dying, the unchurched, and to each other. We are to be active Christians, spreading the Good News.
We are to strive to witness for Jesus in our daily lives, in our community and throughout the world.
The year 1880 was significant in the life of Littleton. It saw the organization of Littleton United Methodist Church, with a membership of 16, and the establishment of Littleton Female College. The students at the college were primarily Methodist. After the present sanctuary was constructed in 1907, the students sat each Sunday in the center section of the church.
In 1919, the college burned and was never rebuilt, but the church continued to thrive.
The history of the church is richly intertwined with the history of the Town of Littleton. Through the years, the church has been a vital and vibrant witness int the community and has flourished as the greater Littleton/Lake Gaston area has continued to develop.
Now in the 21st century, the church continues to develop new ministries and outreach in our community and around the world.
