After a season of conversation, evaluation, discernment and prayer, the Monthly Mission Dinners will end following the last Mission Dinner meal on Monday, October 15, 2018. We are so grateful for the leadership the Mission Dinner Team has provided during the last seven years and all those who have participated. These monthly meals have provided wonderful opportunities for members and friends of Eureka UMC to truly be the hands and feet of Christ. God has used these monthly Mission Dinners to help countless persons find encouragement and a connection to the family of God. We are exploring new ways to build on this legacy and to meet the changing needs of our community so that we may continue to be faithful in making news disciples of Jesus for the transformation of the world!
We invite everyone that has ever prepared meals, served, donated desserts, and assisted with set up or clean up for the Mission Dinners to join us for a special celebration of ministry during either worship service on Sunday, October 14th.
We will begin a new sermon series on Sunday, "A Life That Leads...#follow"
Jesus invites us into an amazing relationship and on an incredible journey. A journey that will lead us into the deep waters of faith as we follow Jesus. This Sunday we will explore "The Table of Grace" and the powerful message Jesus left for us through Communion.
8:30 am and 9:45 am worship servies
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.
During October, we will begin a new sermon series that will explore what it looks like to live "A Life that Leads".
In order to lead, we must first follow Jesus. We will be considering some of the basic practices of the Christian faith and how they can transform us towards the likeness of Christ.
