The mission of Epworth Church 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.

HANDS ON MISSION PROJECT
Pentecost is the celebration of the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples of Christ. As followers, we commit to share and witness the Good News. On Pentecost Sunday, May 19, we invite you to financially support the Samaritan’s Feet shoe distribution slated for Aug. 17. We encourage families and individuals to give at least the cost of one pair of shoes; $15.25. As the distribution date approaches, prayerfully consider serving as a volunteer as well. For more info see Teresa Gray.
