gospel of matthew.jpg

We are continuing our series in Matthew this Sunday! This compelling series will invite us to truly walk with Jesus as we experience his ministry through the eyes of the disciples and consider how these teachings speak to us today.

Join us this Sunday as Pastor Tim shares a compelling message, "Go" from Matthew 28:16-20.

 8:30 am Traditional Service: 

Hymns:
How Great Thou Art
Wash, O God, Our Sons and Daughters
Here I am, Lord

*We will be celebrating the baptism on Marjorie Lippmann during the 8:30 am worship service

 9:45 am Contemporary Service (and Live Stream on Facebook Live)

Worship Songs:
Let it Rise
He Reigns
What Faith Can Do
Who Am I
Build Your Kingdom Here

Our JAM (Jesus and Me) Children's Ministry meets at 9:45 am for children ages 3 years old through the fifth grade.

Childcare is available for children birth through 2 years old in our nursery during both worship service times on Sunday mornings.

THRIVE: It's Time for Us to More Than Survive

You may recognize this sermon title as lyrics from a Casting Crowns song. But these words are much more than some lyrics from a song; they echo what Jesus says in John 10:10, "... I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."

When it comes to our children, our grandchildren, or any other children in our lives, we don't just want them to survive, we want them to thrive. What does it mean to raise kids that thrive? What can we learn from the children in our lives as we seek to raise thriving kids?

August 5, "Impress" from Deuteronomy 6:4-7, Pastor Tim

August 12, "Purpose" from Luke 2:41-52, Pastor Suzanne

August 19, "Learn" from Mark 10:13-16, Jenny Babb

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.'

We have identified a family in Eureka that will benefit greatly from some renovations to their home. Their home, although not in the floodplain, was damaged by the intense rain event last year that caused the record flooding. Rain water flooded their home and destroyed the flooring and part of the drywall. Team Rubicon 'gutted' the house in May 2017 and nothing has been done to restore the home. We are in the process of organizing a team in partnership with St. Mark's Lutheran Church to complete this project. Dates are TBD but will likely be in early to mid August. Our volunteer team coordinator for this project is Tom Brozka. If you'd like to be part of the team, whether for a few hours or a few days, please contact Tom at tbroandco@sbcglobal.net .

The scope of this project will include moving large items (the family will be moved out of their home for about a week), demolition work, cleaning, drywall repairs, painting, new flooring, and repairs in the kitchen and bathroom.


FELLOWSHIP HALL.jpg

One of our HCI prescriptions included improvements in communication. Our HCI coach advised us that part of that communication is the message that our facility is sending to guests and members. One of the first critical areas to be addressed will be our Fellowship Hall. This is the most widely used space by community groups (Scouts, EHS Football team, exercise classes, square dancers, etc) in our facility. Larry Baner is leading the way with this renovation project.

The scope of this project will include refinishing the floors, drywall repairs, painting, replacing damaged ceiling tiles, and potentially updating the bathrooms. If you are interested in serving on this team, please contact Larry Baner at baner4@yahoo.com for more information.
