The mission of Epworth UMC goes beyond the church doors to the needs of the community to do that work of discipleship, of teaching and mentoring, of helping people to understand that we all are beloved children of God. We are called to minister in the name of Jesus Christ to those in need, care for those who are suffering, and bear witness to our Christian experience to those who do not know Jesus Christ as Lord. We seek to live and love as disciples of Jesus Christ, the One who valued and loved all people. We are all called to make disciples and love all others as we love ourselves.

Upcoming Small Groups & Studies
"Entrusted: A Study of 2 Timothy" by Beth Moore
We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves.In this study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live lives of faithfulness.
"Entrusted" begins Thurs. Jan 19 at 6pm. Class will be facilitated by Pam Adams. Cost of book is $15. Please register through church office.
"Creed: What Christians Believe and Why" by Adam Hamilton
We’re all searching. Sometimes the search is easy: simply type a question and the answer pops up. But sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate. How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life? Adam Hamilton believes that some powerful answers are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs. In this book for Lent, Easter, and beyond, Hamilton considers important questions of life, reality, and truth. He explores not only what Christians believe, but also why they believe it and why it matters.
"Creed" begins Wed. Feb 22. Class will be offered at both 11am and 6pm; facilitated by Pastor Allen. Cost of book is $14. Register through church office.
