2017 EUMC Christmas Cantata!

The EUMC Chancel Choir and children from the JAM (Jesus and Me) Children's Ministry invite you to the 2017 EUMC Christmas Cantata on Sunday, December 17th at 4:00 pm in the sanctuary. This will be a wonderful event featuring some of your favorite Christmas songs led by our adult choir and our JAM kids! You are invited to stay afterwards for Christmas cookies, coffee, and hot cocoa in the Commons Area.

Our sanctuary has been very full at the 9:45 am worship service over the past few weeks! This is certainly a wonderful 'problem' to have. We are anticipating even more new families and members on Sundays as we continue into Advent. We are asking for your help!

If you are able, please consider parking as far away as you can on either of our parking lots to provide the best (closest) parking spots for our new guests.

Please consider sitting closer to the front of the sanctuary than you normally do. New families often feel more comfortable near the back during their first few visits.

Please move to the center of the pews and leave the end seats for our new guests and members of our hospitality team (who enter the service late and are required to leave the service early). This will help avoid the sometimes awkward "finding my seat in the middle of the pew shuffle".

Introduce yourself to someone that you do not know. A good conversation starter may be "Good morning, I'm not sure that we have met before. My name is ______________".

Let's do all that we can to welcome each other and our new families!

   Sermon Series

the+star-xmas.jpg

 Join us this Sunday, December 10th, for the second Sunday in Advent and "The Star: A Journey of Love"

The word advent is derived from a Latin phrase which means 'coming'. During the season of Advent, the Church remembers and awaits the coming of Christ, "God in flesh", into our word. Our Advent journey will visit the timeless Christmas story through a series of inspiring sermons and songs as we remember with great anticipation the time when God came near; the arrival of Jesus Christ into our world and into our lives. This Sunday we will consider the JOY that Christ brings into this world and into our lives.

 

See below for additional Sermon Series.

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 at 9:45 am for ages 3 years old through the fifth grade.

9:45 am Worship songs:
Who Am I
God With Us
How Many Kings
Doxology
I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

Our 8:30 am traditional worship service includes timeless Christian hymns led by our Chancel Choir; the same message is offered at both worship services

8:30 am hymns:
Holy, Holy, Holy
Angels We Have Heard on High
How Great our Joy
Joy to the World

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 attend XP3 at 9:45 am (2nd and 4th Sundays of the month) or 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!

RE:SOLUTION sermon series begins on December 31st and continues through January 14th

For all intents and purposes, January is the month for self-improvement. There's nothing wrong with losing a few pounds or working towards a new goal. What if  the New Year could bring something deeper? It can truly be a  time to reflect, refocus, and restart!

     December 31,        "Is There a Better Question?"
     January 7,             "Something to Show For It"
     January 14,           "Pro-Motion"

DEEP LOVE sermon series begins on January 21st and continues through January 11th.

DEEP LOVE is intended to equip people to build stronger, healthy relationship in our lives This is far more than a sermon series; this church wide event will also include the opportunity for you to connect into a new Life Group to swim into the deeper waters of faith and relationships Couples will also be able to participate in an online assessment which will generate a personalized 10 page assessment of your relationship, whether you are dating, newly married, or have been married for decades.

January 21, "Personality" (Pastor Tim)
January 28, "Communication" (Jenny Babb)
February 4, "Conflict" (Pastor Tim)
