Welcome to Epworth United Methodist Church

We are an active community of faith striving to make a difference in people’s lives in the name of Jesus Christ to the glory of God.

It's Happening Now at Epworth!

Camp Firelight VBS

We are so excited to host Vacation Bible School this summer!  Opening up our VBS to the community will require lots of help to make Camp Firelight the best it can be.  We are holding VBS Sunday, July 21 through Thursday, July 25 in the evenings.  If you are interested in helping out, please complete the volunteer registration form.  If you have any questions, please contact the church office.

Youth registration is now open!  We welcome all children ages 4 – 11 to participate.  Click here to register your child.

Trenton Thunder Game

Everyone is invited to join us, on Tuesday, August 6 as we head to Trenton Thunder Ballpark to watch the Trenton Thunder take on the Mahoning Valley Scrappers. It is $1 hot dog night and kids 12 and under will receive a voucher for a free meal.  Tickets are $8 each.  There will be a sign-up sheet in the narthex to reserve your tickets.  Please reserve your tickets by June 30th.  Final payment is due July 14th.  Please contact the church office with any questions.

Wednesday Night Discussion Group

On April 17th we started a new series based on the book, “Putting Scripture in its Place” by Josh Scott.  Books are available in the Narthex.

The Wednesday Night Discussion Group is a joint Bible study with Asbury United Methodist Church in Cinnaminson.  Pastor Rachel and Pastor John lead the group discussions on Wednesday evenings at 7pm on Zoom.  All are welcome to join in the discussion.  For more information about this group, please contact the church office.

"The Chosen" Bible Study

A few years ago, an online series called “The Chosen” made its debut and has sparked a lot of deep theological discussions on discipleship. Pastor Rachel and Matthew would like to invite people to watch through this show and study the Gospels with them over the next few months on Thursday nights at 7pm starting on September 14th at the upstairs television at the church. You can find the schedule here.  If you would like to learn more, you can watch the “Pilot” episode for free here.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is happy to take requests for shawls.  If you know of someone in need of a prayer shawl for comfort, health concerns, bereavement, celebration or praise, please reach out to any member on the Prayer Shawl Ministry or email Barbara Beitz.

Pinochle Club

The Pinochle Club has decided to expand to two times per month, the first and third Saturday of each month with the start time returning to 1 pm.  The first Saturday will feature “card exchange” pinochle while the third Saturday will remain regular pinochle.  The club welcomes new members of any skill level.  Come join us in the Library!  Our next gathering is Saturday, June 15th.  For more information, please contact Debbie Cheeseman.

Mah Jong

Did you know that Epworth has a Mah Jong group?  They meet every Monday at 12:30 pm and are always looking for new people to join them.  Everyone is welcome.  Don’t know how to play?  No problem.  They will be happy to teach you.  For more information, please contact Debbie Cheeseman.
