A Note from the Pastor . . .

Epworth United Methodist Church is a body of believers who recognize the saving grace of Jesus Christ in our lives, and believe in presenting the same amazing opportunity to everyone.

We have been established in Matthews since 1901, with the sole goal and purpose of proclaiming Godís grace and love.  In order to do that, we offer a wide range of activities and opportunities for all ages designed to meet the spiritual and fellowship needs of all people.

We warmly invite you to share the friendship of this congregation.
