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.

Third Quarter Hands-On Mission Project:
Epworth's hands-on mission project for the third quarter will be School Kits to be distributed by UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief). In some countries, children don't have books or school supplies. Many have no schoolrooms; classes are held in inadequate or half-destroyed buildings, tents, or even the open air. School kits may be these children's only educational resources. Click here to find out how you can assemble a School Kit.
Upcoming Bible Studies
They are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways. Join Adam Hamilton in searching for the whole truth by comparing common Christian clichés to the message and ministry of Jesus.
“Half Truths” is facilitated by Pastor Allen Wed. Aug 24 - Sept. 21. Class will be offered at 11am & 6pm. Text is $14.
John the apostle must have thought he had seen everything. Having been with Jesus all the years of his ministry, John witnessed more miracles than he could count, saw more displays of power than he could comprehend, and experienced more love than he could fathom. And one unforgettable morning young John outran Peter to his Savior’s empty tomb. Just as Christ took John on a lifelong journey into the depths of His love, He will do the same for you. The bridegroom’s love is unmatched and inexhaustible, and He is waiting to lavish it on you, His beloved.
“The Beloved Disciple” will be facilitated by Becky Hughes. Class will meet on Thursdays Sept. 22 – Dec. 1 at 6:30pm. Text is $20.

“The Redemption of Scrooge” is a four week advent study facilitated by Pastor Allen. Class will meet on Wednesdays - Nov. 16, 30, Dec. 7 & 14 @ 11am & 6pm. Text is $10.
