Welcome to EPUMC

Eastern Parkway United Methodist Church is a faith community that celebrates the diverse identities and gifts of each human being and shares a common goal of serving others in the name of justice, compassion, and love.

We at EPUMC invite you to be a part of a warm and welcoming church family that worships together each Sunday and leaves classrooms and sanctuary renewed by silence, word, music, and song to serve God and to serve others. Join us and make a difference!
