Our Mission: "Every Christian challenged and equipped to grow more disciples of Jesus Christ by taking risks and changing lives."
Welcome to Epworth United Methodist Church! We are very pleased at your interest in our church and our ministries. We hope you will take the time to visit us in person very soon. If you want to know a bit about Epworth before your first visit, I think I can assist you.
Since my arrival in January of 2007, I have found the people of Epworth to be warm, gentle, accepting, open, and friendly. The people who worship here genuinely care about other people, and not just people who are like us. Over the years the people of Epworth have been known for our concern for those who might be called "the least, the last, and the lost" in the Huntsville community. There has even been in a time in our not too distant past when Epworth was a part of a team of Huntsville area churches that housed homeless women and children in our church buildings. I hope that speaks volumes to your heart about the compassion and love you can find here at Epworth. Epworth has always been passionate about helping those in need.
We consider ourselves to be a family church that offers a safe place where no matter the shape of your family, you can find a place to belong. If you are single, married with children, single-again, an empty-nester, or widowed, we believe you can find of place of warmth and comfort.
Still, we try not to allow folks to be too comfortable. We want you to discover your spiritual gifts and put them to work serving God. Our servant opportunities run the gamut from serving children and youth to serving breakfast to homeless people; from working in the community to summer time assistance to the folks in Louisiana still recovering from Hurricane Katrina or working with the people of southern Applalachia. You can plunge in head first, or you can wade out at your own pace. Still, we want you to find a way both to serve and to belong.
Sunday School begins every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. Our Sunday worship service is at 10:15 a.m. Throughout the year there is a carousel of Bible study, small group, and activity related groups for you and your family to explore.
We look forward to seeing you very soon.
Jim Stringfellow, Senior Pastor
