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.
