Our Deep Love marriage and relationships sermon series concludes 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 "ADAPTABILITY" plays in the key relationships in our lives as we consider some wonderful teachings from the 4th chapter of Philippians.
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:
Love the Lord
God of This City
I Lift My Hands
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.

Flood Recovery Update: next mission Sat 10 Feb. contact me if you want to help repair our flooded neighbors houses. Last month we helped George, a retiree, who has been flooded out twice in the last two years. Five of us turned out to put up wainscoating, patch and finish dry wall and run some new electric wires. George fortunately had flood insurance but he needed help renovating the house he and his wife lived in for a couple of decades. Larry (314) 753-9729
