We welcomed 628 people to our three Easter Services, including eight new families who attended Eureka UMC for the very first time! We also collected nearly $4500.00 through our special Easter Offering! Half of that will go towards the World Service Fund which funds dozens of worldwide ministries of the UMC. The other half will go towards our new partnership with Eureka Elementary School. Thank you for your generosity towards these two amazing ministries!
Did you know that you can give to the life changing ministries of Eureka UMC through your smartphone? We recently launched our new SubSplash giving platform through our mobile app. It takes less than two minutes to set up an account through the mobile app and from there giving is simple! You can set up a recurring gift (i.e. weekly or monthly) and also make 'one time' gifts with a simple click on your smart device. Your continued, generous financial support of the ministries at Eureka UMC is greatly appreciated, is making a difference, and will allow us to fuel our Mission of 'making new disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.'
Join us on Sunday, April 15th as we continue our current sermon series, "MORE".

Will you join us in prayer?
One of the most important ways you can support EUMC right now is to circle the work of the Vision Team in prayer. Our first challenge is determining how we will grow spiritual disciples intent on continuing to strengthen their relationship with Christ.
- We desire to honor the past while stepping into the future and not leaving a single soul behind.
- We desire to SEND disciples into the community, not simply collect disciples.
- We are clear on our mission of making disciples for the transformation of the world, but we need God's direction on HOW to do this well.
Haven't you desired the knowledge it takes to be a better disciple? This is what the vision team will be grappling with over the next few months and we're asking you to saturate our work in some intentional corporate prayer.
The purpose of prayer is to get into God's presence so HE can outline His VISION for us. How? By setting aside a few minutes each day for 40 days April 2-May 12. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 314 749 3874 if you'd like to receive weekly prayer/praise requests re: vision team over the next 40 days.

NEW LIFE GROUP FOR 20S & 30S!
Stephanie Krechel will be leading a new Life Group for young adults in their 20's and 30's. This group will begin meeting in April; dates and times to be determined after the group is formed. Here's some information about what to expect:
We live in a culture that caters to our choices. We like our options, and we enjoy the opportunity to choose our preferences. Popular psychology and human reasoning tell us to make choices based on what feels good. They encourage us, “just follow your heart.” God has given us a much better guide, however, in His Word. Unlike our fickle and untrustworthy opinions, God’s Word never changes. Its dependability has been proven through the centuries.
In The Choice Is Yours, Terrie Chappell will lead us through twelve choices that can strengthen or weaken our walk with God. Discover these important, daily decisions that will bring joy and purpose to your life!
Would you like more information? Please inquire through our mobile app, our website, or through this link: www.tinyurl.com/20s30sEUMC
The group will meet every other week in room 207 beginning April 15th for 6 weeks. You can RSVP Here!
