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!

Sunday Soup Suppers
Our Lenten soup suppers have been a well honored tradition for generations. This year we will gather using a hybrid model. For those who wish to be together in person, you can join us in the Gathering Place at 5:00 PM on Sunday. For those who wish to take part from home, you can use this Zoom link to help you connect.
This year for our study time we will be thinking about grace. We use that term often, but what does it really mean? Are there different kinds of grace? We hope you will make time to be with us throughout lent.

Luke: Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts, and Outlaws
In Luke: Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts, and Out-laws, pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton explores the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus as told in the Gospel of Luke. Through Luke’s stories we find Jesus’ care and compassion for all as he welcomes sinners and outcasts. As we study Luke and see Jesus’ concern for those who were considered unimportant, we hear a hopeful and inspiring word for our lives today.

Join us Wednesday evenings at 7pm via Zoom during Lent for this exciting study and discussion.
