Our Deep Love marriage and relationships sermon series begins on Sunday!

No one is interested in a shallow relationship, right? We don't want to hover around the surface. We want to sink the roots of our relationships deep into love. We want to enjoy deeper connection and understanding. Deeper conversations and bonding. Deeper intimacy and passion. And that's exactly what Deep Love can do for relationships! On Sunday, we will explore the role "Personality" plays in the key relationships in our lives as we consider Jesus' teaching from Luke 10:38-42.

We offer three worship experiences on Sundays!

Our 9:45 am worship service includes modern Christian music led by our amazing praise team.

9:45 am Worship songs:
"Until the Whole World Hears"    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7qi2KlUffs
"Overwhelmed"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMfjDKAqARs
"Revelation Song"   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-zk-E55dRk

If you are travelling or staying at home with flu, you can join us online at 9:45 am. This service will be streaming live via our Eureka United Methodist Church Facebook page and Facebook Live.

Our 8:30 am worship service includes traditional Christian hymns led by our wonderful choir.
