Will you be visiting Eureka UMC on Sunday for the first time?
Wonderful! Here is what you can expect.
We have two parking lots. The North parking lot is located just west of Central Avenue on Third Street. Once you have parked your vehicle, walk towards the church and head to the double doors at the south end of the smaller parking lot (disabled parking) situated between the church building and the 'rock' house. A member of our hospitality team will welcome you at the door. The South parking lot is located just west of Central Avenue on Second Street. Once you have parked your vehicle, enter through either set of doors on the large, white, atrium entrance. A member of our hospitality team will welcome you at the door. Once inside, continue up the stairs to our Commons area.
Once inside the Commons area, other hospitality team members will be available to welcome you and to answer any questions you may have. A large, overhead sign in the Commons area will direct you towards the JAM (Jesus and Me) Children's Ministry "check in" kiosk. JAM is for children 3 years old through the fifth grade. This is also where you will find our staffed nursery (ages birth through 2 years old). Older students are encouraged to join their families in the worship service. Please visit our Connections kiosk to obtain information about the various missions and ministries of the church. Coffee, hot cocoa, juice, water, and light snacks are available before and after the worship services at the Coffee kiosk in the Commons area.
The worship area is located adjacent to the Commons area, through the double doors near the Connections kiosk. The seating in our worship area can accommodate approximately 300 people. Restrooms are located in the corridor near the rear of the worship area.
The staff, members, friends, and guests of Eureka UMC typically dress very casual on Sunday mornings. It's common to see people in jeans and even shorts in the summer. Many kids may also be wearing sports uniforms on Sundays as they prepare for a game later that morning.
Our 8:30 am worship service includes traditional Christian hymns led by our choir and accompanied by the organ or piano.
Our 9:45 am worship service includes modern Christian praise music led by our Praise Team which includes vocalists, guitarists, a bass guitarist, a keyboardist, and a drummer.
Both worship services include numerous songs led respectively by the choir or the praise team. The messages offered by Pastor Tim are the same at both worship services on Sunday morning. Communion is typically offered on the first Sunday of the month during both worship services. We encourage first time guests to complete the attendance form found at the bottom of the worship bulletin. Eureka UMC will make a donation in honor of first time guests and their families to Imagine No Malaria, a world wide ministry of the United Methodist Church. This will provide a mosquito net for a family in Africa and prevent them from contracting this deadly disease.
Pastor Tim is usually near the Connections kiosk between the worship services and after the 9:45 am worship service. Please stop by and introduce yourself. We look forward to meeting you on Sunday!
