On June 6, 2021, at our 10:15 AM worship service, Evangelical UMC will celebrate Holy Communion. This will be the first time for in-person worship in over a year. We will have individually packaged communion elements. Worshippers will stay seated in their seats. Each person will receive a individually wrapped wafer (gluten free available) and sealed grape juice cup from Pastor Andrew , Deacon Megan, or an usher. After everyone receives the elements, Pastor Andrew will invite everyone to partake at once. All who seek to grow in their relationship with Jesus are welcome to participate.

It will start at 6 PM and go through 7 PM. Please visit our VBS page to learn more or register to attend. People of all ages are welcome.

Starting Sunday, April 18, Pastor Andrew will start a sermon series focused on the question-why Jesus? We will be looking different ways we as Christians might answer the question-why Jesus? The sermon series is inspired by the Reverend Adam Hamilton’s three questions: why Jesus? why the church? and why your church? Join us on us at one of our worship opportunities.
On Wednesday nights in April and May, Pastor Andrew will lead a Bible study on the Book of Revelation. Many of us the book challenging. Others cannot get enough of it. The class will puzzle our way through the book with an eye towards the hope we find in God’s promises contained in Revelation. Each study will start at 7 PM and be offered on Zoom.
