EUMC News!

Good morning!

FAQ Sermon Series continues on Sunday, July 23rd!

Several months ago we provided an online survey for members and friends of Eureka UMC to share questions you have about Jesus, God, the Bible, faith and how this all relates to your life. There were some great questions asked as part of this survey! We addressed a few questions from the survey last week and will explore a few more questions this week. Among the questions we will explore are:

"Why is there evil in the world?"

"What is spiritual warfare?"

"Who is Satan and where did Satan come from?"

Maybe you've considered similar questions yourself. Perhaps you've dismissed these claims as fanciful metaphors. You are invited to join us as we explore these real questions from real people in a message titled "Living the Supernatural Faith". We will again be referring to various texts from 1 & 2 Peter.

 

You will want to be there on Sunday as we explore these real questions from real people!

 

We offer two distinct worship services on Sunday morning. Our 9:45 am contemporary worship service includes modern Christian music led by 'midnight prayer', our amazing praise band. Our JAM (Jesus and Me) Children's Ministry also meets at9:45 am for ages 3 years old through the fifth grade.

 

9:45 am worship songs

Walk by Faith

Everything Glorious

Blessed be Your Name

Revelation

Like a Child

 

Our 8:30 am traditional worship service includes timeless Christian hymns; the same message is offered at both worship services.

8:30 am hymns

370 Victory in Jesus

347 Spirit Song

451 Be Thou My Vision

77 How Great Thou Art

 

Childcare is available during both worship services in our newly renovated and professionally staffed nursery for children ages birth through 2 years old. We invite middle school and high school age youth to join their families during the worship services on Sunday mornings.

 

We invite our first time guests to visit www.eurekaumc.org and click the "Are you a first time guest?" link near the top of the page.

 

See you on Sunday!

Back to School Backpack Drive

We are once again collecting backpacks to give to families in need in advance of the new school year. Please visit the "backpack tree" located near the Welcome Desk this Sunday, retrieve a tag, and return the backpack and contents by July 30th. Let's ensure that no child has to begin this school year without the necessary school supplies!

 

Eagle Lake Day Camp and Pre-School Mini Camp, July 31-August 4

It is amazing to think that we will be welcoming at least 206 Eagle Lake Campers, 28 Mini Campers, 45 Eagle Lake staff counselors, and dozens of volunteers to our camps every day in just over a week! As you can imagine, it is no small task to organize and implement such a wonderful event like this for our community. If you are still looking for a place to serve and to make a difference in the life of a child (or hundreds of children), please contact our Director of Family Ministries, Jenny Babb at jenny.babb@eurekaumc.org. Thank you in advance for your willingness to serve!

Would you like to be part of our Prayer Warrior Team? Each Monday morning we send out a list of prayer requests, over email, for this team to pray over for the week. If you would like to be added to this team just send your email to the church office at eumc01@sbcglobal and we’ll get you added!

Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 

 

 It has been an amazing week at Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary! The seminary is on the shore of Lake Michigan, located near the center of Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, Although I am only here for two weeks, preparation for this onsite portion of my studies began in October with thousands of pages of reading, hundreds of pages of papers to write, and numerous online discussion forums with the professors and other students. It is great to be able to finally gather, face to face, with my professors and fellow students. These class times, as always, are both challenging and invigorating. One of the things I appreciate about this structure of "learning as you lead" is the opportunity to employ what I have learned at seminary into our local ministry setting and community right away.

 

I am looking forward to being back in town for our worship services this Sunday. Have a great rest of the week and I'll see you on Sunday!

 

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Tim
