 SUNDAY, June 28th AT 10:00a.m. IN OUR PARKING LOT.  Please note the change in time from 11:00a.m. to 10:00a.m as we move into warmer days.

Until we can safely worship in our sanctuary again we will be continuing Drive-In Services for worship.  Come in your car and you will be able to participate in our live service while accessing the  service on your car radio.  We will be parking in every other space in our parking lot. The Church Building, bathrooms and playground will be closed; and we ask that worshippers stay in their cars to promote social distancing. Weekly services will still be posted on YouTube.

Come and join us for this new form of Sunday Service.

Welcome Back Inside Our Sanctuary

On Sunday, July 5th we are planning to hold worship service inside our sanctuary for those who feel comfortable returning to worship. Service will be at 10:00a.m. for the time being. Services will be added as necessary.

Seating in pews is arranged for social distancing and masks are required. Masks will be available if you forget yours. Hand sanitizer will be available as you arrive. Ushers will escort you to your seat. Unfortunately visiting with friends will be discouraged.  We are taking reasonable steps to assure your safety. Because seating is limited we are asking that you call the church office and let us know that you will be attending so we can reserve you a seat.  You can call Monday – Thursday from 9:00a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

If seating is full or you are not ready to worship inside, you will be able to continue to worship in the parking lot as the FM 89.9 will still be operating.

The Sunday message will continue to be loaded on to YouTube. You can view any of our services by going to youtube.com. In the search window type the date and Ellijay for example:    03 22 20 ellijay  This will bring up this past Sunday’s message. Be sure to put a space between the month, day, and year and Ellijay just like you see it typed here If you put any past Sunday’s date, that week’s service will come up.

Come and Join us at EFUMC!

After surveying and receiving feedback from students, parents, and others involved in G.R.A.S.P. we have decided to postpone G.R.A.S.P. this year. We willm however, endeavor to keep the Spirit of G.R.A.S.P. alive through short service projects in the community during the upcoming school year.  We will use our time, too, to plan a GREAT comeback for GR.A.S.P. in 2021.

Stephen ministry is a nondenominational confidential ministry of trained Christian care givers. Their role is to LISTEN and CARE- not counsel of advise. Stephen Ministers are assigned only to  people who agree to receive the care of a Stephen Minister.  They minister to people in specific situations such as divorce, terminal illness, grief, aging, loneliness, single parenting, etc. Stephen Ministers minister to only one care receiver at a time and usually meets with that person for one hour per week.  They are trained to recognize when a care receiver’s needs go beyond the care of a Stephen Minister and can refer the Care Receiver for additional care. People interested in these services need not be a member of a church.

For more information on becoming a Stephen Minister or requesting services from a Stephen Minister please contact Gwen Scarth,  at gwenyth.allen@gmail.com or at 706-258-8757 or John VanNamen at vannamenjohn@ gmail.com or at 219-670-3057.
