Third Sunday of Advent: PEACE
IT'S SANTA! I KNOW HIM!!!!
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10 from 9am - 11am you are invited to pass through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops and step into a magical land where busy elves will serve you fluffy pancakes with all the maple syrup you want. Santa will be here for lots of visits and you might even spot our very own life-size Elf on the Shelf. BUT DO NOT TOUCH HIM!!!!! Event is by donation to benefit our 2017 Summer Missions Team.

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.
