Epworth UMC maintains an open invitation to all to attend our services and participate in our programs and events. Our services are grounded in scripture and tradition, and encompass an inherent desire as Methodists to put our faith and love into action in our everyday lives. Our church is actively involved in the community, and we invite you to join our mission to serve others through your time, treasures and talents.
We invite you to join us for Sunday School at 9:00am, where you can study the Word of God in a small group setting. We have classes for all ages with curricula designed to enhance spiritual growth and discipleship, as well as provide a venue to actively engage people in fellowship and worship.
We are a small church in the heart of Arlington, Texas. Our congregation is a lot like our community – some were raised here, while others relocated here as soon as they could – some dress in their Sunday’s best, while others fit right in with their jeans and shorts. No matter your story, we hope you will find Epworth to be as charming and inviting as the city in which it resides.
For those coming to Sunday School, classes start at 9:00am every Sunday morning and finish up around 10:00am. Just ask one of the friendly faces you encounter as you enter the building, and they will be glad to show you to your class. We have programs for all ages, and a staffed nursery for the smallest members of your family.
The worship service begins at 10:30am in the Sanctuary. Arrive early if you’re able and visit with us for a bit, and maybe even grab a cup of coffee or snack before the service begins. Our recently renovated narthex now provides a comfortable atmosphere for folks to sit and talk, whether it’s at one of the café tables or while sitting on a cozy sofa. Feel free to sample the warm greetings and friendly conversation before feasting on the Word of God delivered by Rev. Dr. James Ballard. Be prepared to be inspired by a truly gifted pianist, and listen to uplifting music from the choir led by our equally gifted Music & Arts Director. Our choir may appear small in number, but it is big in voice! Our worship service is technologically enhanced by two big screens that provide the congregation with words to hymns, prayers and scripture throughout the service.
There is always something going on at Epworth, and we invite you to be a part of some or all of it. Feel free to stop by whenever you like. In fact, bring your family, your friends, and even your neighbors. We have something for everyone.
