CWith current Covid-19 restrictions, our Sunday School classes are not meeting.
The mission of ONE80 Youth Ministries is to develop youth who have transformed hearts through a relationship with Jesus Christ, founded on prayer, study, action, and fellowship. ONE80 (Life Revolutionized) is our youth group for Jr. High and High School ages.
Presently, our youth group is not meeting due to COvid-19 restrictions.
Our current Bible Study plans have been suspended. Once people feel more comfortable gathering together, we will explore resuming in person studies. In the meantime, watch our Facebook page for videos from the pastors that explore the Bible and our prayer life.
Puppets for Jesus
EPFUMC's puppet team does puppetry, dowel rods, sign language, blacklight, & other various performances. Not only do they regularly perform during our worship services, PFJ travels to local nursing homes, retirement homes, churches of all denominations, schools, & so many other places sharing the news of our Great and Loving God.
For more information, including how to contact PFJ to schedule a performance, click here.
Our Worship group features local musicians and vocalists, and performs both contemporary and traditional worship music. Each Sunday Worship Service features both hymns and contemporary songs.
In normal times, we also have a vocal choir, and a handbell choir. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 restrictions none of our choirs are active at this time. We hope to resume regular practices and performances as soon as possible.
East Peoria Food Pantry
The East Peoria Food Pantry is located here in our church. The East Peoria Food Pantry provides food
for over 60 East Peoria families a week. This is a contactless service as well.
The Pantry runs from 1pm to 3pm every Monday, and serves people living in the 61611 zip code. For more information or to volunteer or make donations, call the church office at (309) 699-5417.
Unfortunately our SnackPac ministry is currently on hold due to current school restrictions regarding Covid-19. We hope to resume this ministry soon.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
We have a few ladies that make beautiful Prayer Shawls and then donates them to our church. The Prayer Shawls are then prayed over in our Sunday service and are given to people in need of comfort and encouragement. Anyone that loves to knit or crochet, is very welcome to help us with this wonderful ministry.
