 EUMC is known for their homemade noodles served at the Cumberland Covered Bridge Festival and this is an opportunity to enjoy a delicious  chicken and noodle or beef and noodle dinner prepared in the same tradition.

This is to make up for some of the losses incurred from the cancellation of the Covered Bridge Festival, where our food tent is the primary fundraiser for church operations, missions, and outreaches.

encourage you to come and grow with us as we seek those answers and learn to trust God to provide for all of our needs.

Please come and visit us at our location at 105 W. 8th St. in Matthews,
IN. We promise to make you feel welcome!

Grace and Peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!
