Epworth United methodist Church





The College Ministry at Epworth UMC is for all college students (guys and girls). We meet three times a week on a regular basis: Sunday morning at 9:45am we gather for corporate worship and 11am for Bible teaching, Sunday evening at 7:30pm for food, fellowship, and ministry teams and Wednesday night at 6pm for a joint worship service with the student ministry. The college group also hosts monthly socials and seasonal retreats.
