This is a great question! At Eureka UMC, we want you to experience the fullness of God's grace and love, and we believe that is best experienced in community. We have developed a path to connection; we call it "Next Steps".

The First Step:

So where do you start? You are invited to gather for an informal "Ice Cream With The Pastor" on selected Sunday mornings throughout the year. During this time, you'll meet with Pastor Tim and learn about the Mission and Vision of Eureka UMC and you're also encouraged to ask questions about our various ministries and missions. 

2017 dates for "Ice Cream With the Pastor":

Sunday, April 30th at 11 am

The Next Steps:

Next, you'll gather with a group of other families who are interested in finding a connection into the life of this amazing church. You and your group will meet with Pastor Tim and other leaders at Eureka UMC and engage in wonderful discussions over the course of four, one hour gatherings over the span of two months. The discussions include: What does it mean to be a Christian? What is unique about the Methodist Church? How do I grow in my faith? How do I live out my faith?

The Next Step


Next, you'll be introduced to a "Connect Coach". This coach is someone who serves in a leadership role at Eureka UMC. Our guests routinely tell us that being paired with a Connect Coach is the most amazing part of finding a connection at Eureka UMC!


Once you and your family have found your connect, a place to grow and serve, at Eureka UMC, you'll have the opportunity to officially join the church as new members.
