deep love.jpg

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

(If you missed last week, you can view last week's message online through our mobile app, website, or Facebook page)

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 "CONFLICT" plays in the key relationships in our lives as we consider the biblical wisdom from various Proverbs in the Bible. 

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:

Like a Lion
My Savior Lives
Mighty to Save
Come as You Are
Like a Child

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.

8:30 am hymns:

Jesus Shall Reign
Be Still My Soul
The Gift of Love


Childcare (birth through 2 years old) is available during both worship services.

Our JAM (Jesus and Me) Children's Ministry, ages 3 years old through the 5th grade, meet each Sunday at 9:45 am

Our XP3 Youth (grades 6-12) meet on the second and fourth Sundays of each month.
