United Methodist Women
The UMW welcomes all the ladies of the church to deepen their faith through study, mission and fellowship. The UMW meets at various times of the year. Circles,which are smaller groups of the UMW, meet regularly. Each circle has a different focus and does a variety of activities.
Women’s Spirituality Group
The ladies gather on the third Tuesday of the month for a time of study and fellowship. Often they will explore a book together. At other times they may have a guest speaker. Always they are sharing their faith journey with one another offering support to one another.
The men gather Thursday evenings at 7pm via Zoom and in-person for a time of discussion and fellowship. They have shared a movie night, watched the Eagles, held a pancake supper and done some projects around the church. All men are invited.
Our discussion group meets Wednesday evening at 7pm via Zoom. our group is made up of folks from Epworth and Asbury UMCs with Pastor Charlie and Pastor John Doll co-leading. We study a variety of scriptures and topics. You will find it is a time of learning with great fellowship.
Our youth usually meet Sunday afternoon. All Youth are welcome to take part. During their time together you find them involved in a Bible study, eating, playing and serving in mission. We ceate a safe environment where the youth can be themselves, be open to what they are dealing with as young people and how their faith can guide them.
Adult Sunday School
Our adult Sunday School classes meet prior to worship. The two classes are bible based study groups. Our Cokesbury Group meets at 8:45 via Zoom. They use a seasonal curriculum. Our Verse By Verse Group meets at 9am in the Gathering Place. They are studying Galations.
Our Monday morning check-in group began as a way to connect with one another. Gathering at 10am via Zoom there is no agenda other than to share time and fellowship with one another. Often it is a place where we share ideas for what Epworth’s ministry may look like as we move through these challenging times.
MAH JONG to resume. Plans are being made to restart our Mah Jong Group. Having been away for months, there is excitement about getting back to playing Mah Jong. (This is not your video solitaire version). A fun game played through the centuries it offers a time of fellowship. All are welcome you will be helped to learn the game if it is new to you. Watch this space for dates and time!
