We have a rich history in Council Bluffs–the Articles of Incorporation for Epworth were signed in 1889. Throughout the years, there has been a rich sports history, strong community outreach, and involvement with the youth of our community, especially through our partnership with various athletic and music groups at Thomas Jefferson High School.
We believe in passionately caring for God, each other, and all of God’s creation through developing disciples in Christ and through our many outreach programs. We actively support and assist the Care and Share House–a free food pantry and store; spring and fall Rummage sales to support children’s spiritual and biblical education; participation in Lenten Luncheons, and Advent Bible Studies.
Our mission is “Creating difference makers in new communities of faith”, which is a United Methodist churchwide effort. We like to have fun with Vacation Bible School, fall Back to School Carnival, and Halloween Trunk or Treat.
Our roots are strong in tradition, and we are lifting our leaves up in outreach to new generations, preparing for the blossom and fruition of the future.
