A Note from Pastor Suzanne

I want to thank everyone for the warm welcome I received my first Sunday!  You're anointing, prayers and gifts were a blessing beyond words.  

In coordination with the leadership team, we will be organizing listening sessions so that I can learn more about you, your church and your dreams for the future.  God is doing some amazing things at Eureka UMC and I'm so grateful to be a part of it!

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Suzanne

eagle lakes summer camp 2017.jpg

Our goal is to reach 200 children with the Good News of Jesus Christ through our Eagle Lake Camp in late July and we are closing in on that goal! We currently have 165 campers registered along with 10 pending registrations! We have 28 campers registered for our Mini Camp!

We want to invite you to do something very simple to help us succeed at meeting and exceeding this goal: visit the Eureka UMC Facebook page and simply 'share; our most recent post about Eagle Lake Camps. It takes only a brief moment to do so and each 'share', on average, will reach 150 families with the wonderful opportunity to enroll their children in this amazing camp! Imagine how many families we can reach if just 100 of our families 'shared' this event. 15,000 families!

Thank you for helping us spread the message about one of our biggest outreaches of the year!

We are beginning a new series this Sunday! This compelling series will invite us to truly walk with Jesus as we experience his ministry through the eyes of the disciples and consider how these teachings speak to us today.

This Sunday we will explore the call of the first four disciples found in Matthew 4:18-22. What does it mean to follow Jesus? What is required of us? Is it worth it? 

 8:30 am Traditional Service: 

Morning has Broken
Shall we Gather at the River
Are Ye Able
This is My Father's World

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

Worship Songs:
House of God Forever
Desert Song
How Can it Be
Your Love is Strong
Your Love Never Fails

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 children are often anxious, bullied or made fun of when they don’t have a backpack or school supplies?  You can help prevent that from happening by participating in the annual backpack drive organized by EUMC WOW (women of worship) to benefit children who utilize the Eureka Food Pantry and children serviced by the St. Louis Crisis Nursery. 

GREAT NEWS:  backpacks provided!  So just fill them up with school supplies!

The “Fill a backpack” school supply drive runs from July 1 – 29. 

We will have a box filled with new, empty backpacks in the Commons Area beginning Sunday, July 1.  Participants will simply need to grab an empty backpack  (or 2), along with a supply lists.  Fill the backpack with supplies from the list.   Then put the filled backpack into the box at church with the list attached or included inside the backpack.  If some of the supplies won’t fit inside the backpack, simply place them in a plastic grocery bag and securely tie the handles of the bag around one of the straps of the backpack.  All the backpacks need to be returned Sunday, July 29 and placed in the box or boxes in the Commons Area.

The supply list will be in 2 envelopes attached to the box.  1 envelope will have supply lists for local children who utilize the Eureka Food Pantry and 1 envelope will have supply lists for children supported by the St. Louis Crisis Nursery.  It is REALLY important that the list be connected to or inside the backpack so that it gets delivered to the correct child. 

Please contact me directly (Karen Hughes at if you want to participate but need a supply list emailed to you --- or if you have questions.

Thank you for being the hands and feet of Christ!!

Have a fantastic week and

we look forward to seeing you on Sunday Morning!
