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!

The Epworth Mandeville Scholarship

Lenten Soup Suppers

Lent is fast approaching, and we are beginning to plan for our Lenten Soup Suppers!  There will be a sign-up sheet in the Narthex.  You can also sign up by contacting the church office.

What Makes a Methodist?

On January 28th, Pastor Rachel will be beginning a new sermon series on What Makes a Methodist?  Have you ever thought about what specific aspects of faith made the Methodist Movement take off like wildfire accross the country? This series will be a focus in 3 things that uniquely identify Methodists: Grace, Social Awareness, and Zeal.

Diaper Drive

Effective Jan. 28 through Mar. 10, 2024 Rachel Circle will again conduct a Diaper Drive to aid low-income struggling families in the Trenton area.   Diapers & wipes will then be provided to “The Maker’s Place” – a diaper bank and resource center distribution site located at Trinity UMC in Ewing, NJ. 
Diapers – sizes 4 through 7 are especially helpful!   Diapers range in size from Newborn to size 7; pull-ups come in sizes T2-3, T3-4, and T4-5).  All sizes will be accepted, and we will also accept baby wipes at this time.  Our goal is to collect a total of 3,000 diapers to deliver to The Maker’s Place.  Donated diapers & wipes may be placed in the specially marked bin outside the office door.   We ask your support in this mission effort that has been approved by the executive board of Epworth’s unit of United Women of Faith.

Wednesday Night Discussion Group

Our Wednesday Night Discussion Group with Asbury UMC is beginning again on September 13th at 7pm with the study of a book called, “On Purpose”. If you’re interested in joining, Pastor Rachel has free copies of the book available. This study will be on ZOOM using this link. 

"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.
