Our worship is a blend of traditional and celebration styles. We are relaxed and informal, and people dress pretty much as they feel comfortable. Music is provided by our talented praise band and ranges from the traditional hymn classics to the modern.
A Letter from Our Pastor
Staying connected in this uncharted territory of pandemic and isolation is hard, but please know that I and Gary our Office Manager are doing our best to be creative in connecting with you as we continue to be the community of Eureka First UMC. For at least the next couple of weeks we will have no in person meetings or worship services with our congregation. Many of the groups who rent space in our buildings are choosing not to meet as well and we are asking others to move towards not congregating. The church work day that was postponed from last Saturday to this Saturday has been canceled.
We will be live streaming this Sunday’s worship service on the church Facebook page (Eureka First United Methodist Church) at 9:30 AM. We are working on a way to make that available through our website as well, but probably in a delayed timing. In addition to that I will be sending out an outline for worship at home for those who can’t access the video of worship. We are also working on getting up to speed on hosting Zoom meetings on line for Bible Study and committee meetings.
For the time being the office will remain open Monday through Thursday from 9 to noon. If you need or want to talk to me, please feel free to call (707) 599-2295. I want and need to stay in touch with each of you, and will be doing so regularly through phone calls, text, email and regular mail.
Pastor Steve Berti of the Nazarene Church and Pastor Cassie of the Baptist Church and I have put together a video to lighten the mood around here and have attached it below and is available on the Pastors Facebook page as well as the Churches Facebook page. Let us know if you are able to view it and if not and you want to see it I can send it to you via text.
Stay connected to one another and to God in this time of unprecedented need. Spend time in the natural world – it is the safest and most renewing place to be!
