Join us and make a difference!

We are a faith community striving
to be, to nurture and to send forth disciples of Jesus Christ. 

Our faith calls us to be mindful of opportunities for service to our brothers and sisters and all of God’s children both nearby and far away.

We come from many neighborhoods. We are enriched by discovering the similarities and differences in our congregation as together we find ways to share worship and community service.

Eastern Parkway UMC is a friendly neighborhood church in the United Methodist tradition. 

We’re making a difference. Join us and you will, too.

In His Care,
Rev. Alan D. Kinney, pastor


All are welcome!

Eastern Parkway UMC is a member of the Reconciling Ministries Network of the United Methodist Church, welcoming all God’s children, regardless of sexual orientation or gender.
