Summer Worship Schedule

This Sunday, June 4th, kicks off our Summer Worship Scheduleone worship service at 9:30 am.  This schedule will begin on June 4 and end on August 13th.

Children’s Sunday School

Children’s Sunday School will be held during the summer worship service beginning June 4th.  The children will meet in the Preschool Sunday School room/choir room, and it will be a one group class again.

The theme will be Berenstain Bears!  Sundays find the Bear family busily enjoying all sorts of activities, but church isn’t one of them.  In The Berenstain Bears Go to Sunday School, children discover the value of going to church and Sunday School as a family.

Special Services in June

June 11th will be Pastor Nancy’s last Sunday preaching.  After the 9:30 am summer worship service, we will hold a celebratory potluck dinner in the Family Life Center in honor of Pastor Nancy Davis’ 33 years of ministry.   Come thank Pastor Nancy for her leadership of Elkhorn Hills UMC these past five years, and wish her well.    Click here for more information about the retirement potluck dinner.

June 18th we will have a guest preacher.  Elkhorn Hills UMC member Gail Graeve will be our guest preacher on June 18th.  Gail is a fantastic speaker, and we look forward to supporting her and hearing her message.
