EUMC News! (May 17th, 2018)


Do you ever have a craving?

Let's be honest, you've probably heard or read something that's in the Bible and thought to yourself, "that's weird." You may even begin to wonder why this seemingly weird story is even part of God's Word. This begs the question, "why is this weird stuff in the Bible anyway? What does it mean? How can this possibly speak to my life in 2018?"

We invite you and your family to join us on Sunday, May 20th as we explore the life of Samson, a man of incredible strength. Samson had a huge God sized calling on his life...and he also struggled greatly with some huge, Samson sized cravings in his life which distracted him from his calling. What can we learn from the life of Samson?

We gather for two unique expressions of worship on Sunday mornings; we invite you and your family to join us at either one of these worship services

 8:30 am Traditional Service: 

Thine be the Glory
I Surrender All
Nearer My God to Thee

 9:45 am Contemporary Service (and Live Stream on Facebook Live)

Worship Songs:
Today is the Day
Sing, Sing, Sing
Holy is the Lord
This is Amazing Grace

Our JAM (Jesus and Me) Children's Ministry meets at 9:45 am for children ages 3 years old through the fifth grade.

Childcare is available for children birth through 2 years old in our nursery during both worship service times on Sunday mornings

Did you know that there are 60 students at Eureka Elementary School that receive free or reduced lunches? We were surprised to learn about this and developed a new partnership with Eureka Elementary School to help meet the needs of these students. We recently delivered over 1800 servings of breakfast foods and lunch snacks to Eureka Elementary School to help bridge the gap to the end of the school year so that these amazing students can receive the food that their bodies require to do well in school. As a friend or a member of Eureka UMC, you are part of this important ministry into our local schools! Your faithful and generous support towards Eureka UMC will ensure that this ministry, along with many other life changing ministries, will continue to have a positive impact in our community, all to God's glory!

Did you know that you can give to the life changing ministries of Eureka UMC through your smartphone? We recently launched our new SubSplash giving platform through our mobile app. It takes less than two minutes to set up an account through the mobile app and from there giving is simple! You can set up a recurring gift (i.e. weekly or monthly) and also make 'one time' gifts with a simple click on your smart device. Your continued, generous financial support of the ministries at Eureka UMC is greatly appreciated, is making a difference, and will allow us to fuel our Mission of 'making new disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.'

Lunch will begin at 11:30 am.
