K-5th grade kids meet every Wednesday at the church from 5:30 p.m. until 7:15 p.m. We will learn, play games, do crafts, and other fun things. Spread the word. Our kids are our future.
Currently 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. They meet every Sunday evening at 6:00.
We offer Bible Studies periodically. Please check our home page or contact the church office at (309) 699-5417 to inquire as to when the next one begins.
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.
We have an adult choir featuring many talented voices which usually sing on the 1st and 3rd Sundays every month, a Bell Choir that plays handbells beautifully about once a month.
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.
We currently help take care of over 100 East Peoria Grade School kids. Every Friday we send home with them a sack with snacks and small meals they can easily prepare themselves. Our volunteers pack these sacks every Monday morning. Please call the church office at (309) 699-5417 to volunteer or to find out what items are needed. Monetary donations are greatly appreciated also.
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.
