What is your hope for your children, grandchildren or the children in your life? Is it for them to survive this crazy thing we call life?

Or would you prefer that they THRIVE?

Please join us on Sunday as we continue this new series with an emphasis on how to raise children that THRIVE. While there is an emphasis on children, the biblical wisdom in this series encourage and equip people of all ages. Pastor Suzanne will continue this series by exploring the wisdom contained in Luke 2 with a message titled PURPOSE.

**Also, don’t forget your backpacks ~ we will have a special Blessing of the Backpacks during each worship service.

THRIVE: It's Time for Us to More Than Survive

You may recognize this sermon title as lyrics from a Casting Crowns song. But these words are much more than some lyrics from a song; they echo what Jesus says in John 10:10, "... I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."

When it comes to our children, our grandchildren, or any other children in our lives, we don't just want them to survive, we want them to thrive. What does it mean to raise kids that thrive? What can we learn from the children in our lives as we seek to raise thriving kids?

We have identified a family in Eureka that will benefit greatly from some renovations to their home. Their home, although not in the floodplain, was damaged by the intense rain event last year that caused the record flooding. Rain water flooded their home and destroyed the flooring and part of the drywall. Team Rubicon 'gutted' the house in May 2017 and nothing has been done to restore the home. We are in the process of organizing a team in partnership with St. Mark's Lutheran Church to complete this project. Dates are TBD but will likely be in early to mid August. Our volunteer team coordinator for this project is Tom Brozka. If you'd like to be part of the team, whether for a few hours or a few days, please contact Tom at .

The scope of this project will include moving large items (the family will be moved out of their home for about a week), demolition work, cleaning, drywall repairs, painting, new flooring, and repairs in the kitchen and bathroom.


One of our HCI prescriptions included improvements in communication. Our HCI coach advised us that part of that communication is the message that our facility is sending to guests and members. One of the first critical areas to be addressed will be our Fellowship Hall. This is the most widely used space by community groups (Scouts, EHS Football team, exercise classes, square dancers, etc) in our facility. Larry Baner is leading the way with this renovation project.

The scope of this project will include refinishing the floors, drywall repairs, painting, replacing damaged ceiling tiles, and potentially updating the bathrooms. If you are interested in serving on this team, please contact Larry Baner at for more information.


American Ninja Warrior is incredibly popular! Many kids (and their parents) love watching these competitors compete on some amazing obstacle courses. 

We invite you to bring your children, grandchildren, and their friends to be part of our American Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course for Kids on Saturday, September 15th from 3-5 pm. This amazing, family friendly event will be held on the South parking lot of Eureka UMC!
