Get Involved — Adult Ministries

Adult Studies

Our Bible based Sunday School program runs year-round with classes for both children and adults. All Sunday morning classes begin study at 10:30am.  Adults also have the option to join weekday studies.  Nursery care is provided, insuring that parents can attend class too.         

UM Women

U.M. Women meets once a month for general meetings and once a month for circle (small group) gatherings.  Their primary purpose is develop a creative, supportive fellowship and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the church. To help fund their projects they hold an annual Christmas Bazaar on the first Saturday of each December.  Community projects they support are: Meals-On-Wheels, Domestic Violence Intervention, and the Churchill County Library.   

Epworth Men

The men of Epworth have a study group that meets each Thursday morning from 6:30am to 7:30am to learn more from the Bible and keep each other accountable to their Christian faith.

Music

Music is an important part of our worship and celebrations.  Music is provided by our Epworth Choir, the Praise Team, Margot Mills (our superb accompanist with over 45 years of service), and special performances by congregation members. We have a handbell choir that practices and performs on a seasonal basis. There is always room for more people to help make a joy ful noise.

Coffee and Fellowship

From 10:15 to 10:45 you can always find a wonderful selection of “sweet and savory” snacks, as well as a fresh brewed cup of coffee.  This is a great time to meet new people, catch up with current friends, and fortify yourself for the Sunday School hour which starts at 10:30. 

Fallon Daily Bread

Each Monday and Thursday night organized groups of volunteers prepare and serve free meals to the hungry in our community.  Often the patrons are seniors or families trying to stretch their monthly budget, others are people living in circumstances that won’t allow for home cooking.  The only requirement to receive a meal is to show up.  Although Fallon Daily Bread is a ministry of Epworth, they receive support for this work through donations of time, food, and money from many individuals, church groups, and service organizations in our community. 

Hospitality

If there is food involved with an event, you can bet the Hospitality Team is also involved.  They organize and arrange snacks, refreshments, and meals for a variety of events at Epworth.  From funerals to touring bicyclists this group knows how to play host and make everyone feel welcome.   The coffee is always on and the food is always good. 

Levites

Our Levites Team works hand in hand with the Board of Trustees to determine areas of the building and grounds that can be repaired or improved with volunteers, thereby saving the church the expense of hiring paid professionals. Volunteers are always welcome.

Evangelism

The goal of this group is to grow the Body of Christ for God’s glory.  Inviting others to join us in worship and in special events are key elements of this plan.  We want everyone to feel warmly welcomed everytime they come through the doors of Epworth.

Mission

The Missions Committee has a goal; to show the love of God to as many people as possible by improving the conditions of their lives.  The Missions Committee raises awareness and funds by providing information, special events, and hands-on opportunities to serve with ministries that help people worldwide in the name of Christ. 

Through the coordination of our Missions Committee we support the work of several missionaries and keep in touch with their needs.  The following are a few other projects we support through out the year: Heifer International, Habitat For Humanity, Operation Christmas Child, and UMVIM.

History & Archives

Epworth was founded in September of 1905.  We have a lot of stories to tell and history to record.  This team is always busy gathering, preserving, dating, and storing documents, photos, newspaper articles, or any other material that tells the story of our church. 

Prayer Teams

Our members believe in the strength of prayer.  We have multiple ways for our congregation to pray for your needs:  Two telephone trees, an email tree, and a weekly list from our worhsip service.   If you would like to be one of our prayer warriors, please call the office and we will get you connected.
