Elkhorn Hills Serves

Join us July 29th for our “Elkhorn Hills Serves” service.  One special service and one special day of service.  Join the entire congregation for fun, fellowship, food and fixin’s (building fixing that is!) hosted by the Trustees and Missions Committees.

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58

After our 9:30 worship, we will stay and perform some service duties around our church.  Wear comfortable work clothes.  Lunch will be provided.  Enjoy this time of fellowship as we work together to take care of God’s house.

Service Registration Details

*We hope you’ll join us for a day of painting, cleaning, and organizing around the church – there will be something for everyone! Registration for this event will begin early July and is being coordinated by our Board of Trustees. Lunch is being sponsored by the Missions Committee and they ask that you bring a salad or dessert to share, fried chicken will be provided!

For the next couple weeks please note the “Together We Serve” bulletin insert. Please designate what area you would like to help with. Inserts can also be picked up in the church office. Fill them out and return to the office or placing it in the collection plate on the 8th or 15th.

Trustee’s Tidbits

Our doors open wide each Sunday morning welcoming the congregation full of friends, family, neighbors and guests. Those same doors continue to open every day of the week.

  • new Cub Scout Pack
  • Kindermusik (3 days a week)
  • EHUMC preschool (5 days a week)
  • Parent’s day out (3 days a week)

Thru out the year we also host funeral lunches, baptismal lunches, weddings & receptions, pinewood derbies, election polling, musical recitals and Lego University.

If our building was used only once a week, it would be easy to maintain it with such “light” use.  But, that’s not God’s intent.

Being good stewards of our building means using it to its full potential and taking care of it too.  It takes a village…no a congregation!
