CHRISTMAS GIVING TREE!
Want to make Christmas brighter for families who are struggling? Some parents have to make the choice to buy food or pay the rent. So Christmas gifts for their children are even further down the list or simply wishful thinking. Help bring some joy to families serviced by the St. Louis Crisis Nursery, many of which are having extreme difficulty meeting the basic needs of their children.
Grab a gift tag off the Christmas Giving Tree located in the Commons areas at EUMC. UNWRAPPED gifts should be placed under the tree by Sunday, December 9th.
Celebrate Recovery Prayer Team--
The Vision team thanks all of you who joined the prayer team as we began our journey of developing God's unique vision for EUMC. We all grew closer to God as a result of your prayers and truly listened with ears to hear God's voice. The Celebrate Recovery leadership team is asking for you to cover our work in prayer as we reach into our community to help those suffering from hurts, hangups, or habits. We are quite clear that this task is way beyond us and requires God to be in it with us. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 314 749 3874 if you'd like to receive weekly prayer points for the next 40 days as we focus on being the externally focused church that God envisions.

Sounds of the Season concert
We invite you to join Sean Stewart, our choir director and a member of the Ambassadors of Harmony, on Sunday, December 9th at 7pm for this amazing performance. If you would like to attend, please contact choir member Carol Wellons at firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets. Transportation will be provided through the Eureka UMC bus.
We have identified a family in Eureka that will benefit greatly from some renovations to their home. Their home, although not in the floodplain, was damaged by the intense rain event last year that caused the record flooding. Rain water flooded their home and destroyed the flooring and part of the drywall. Team Rubicon 'gutted' the house in May 2017 and nothing has been done to restore the home. We are in the process of organizing a team in partnership with St. Mark's Lutheran Church to complete this project. Dates are TBD but will likely be in early to mid August. Our volunteer team coordinator for this project is Tom Brozka. If you'd like to be part of the team, whether for a few hours or a few days, please contact Tom at email@example.com
The scope of this project will include moving large items (the family will be moved out of their home for about a week), demolition work, cleaning, drywall repairs, painting, new flooring, and repairs in the kitchen and bathroom.
