We have two services: one at 8:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall, located east of the main sanctuary, and the other one at 10:50 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:30 each Sunday.
If you are visiting the Lake Eufaula area for the weekend or are here on a vacation, WELCOME! Do not feel like you have to "dress up" to worship. We have lots of weekend visitors, and we would love to have you in either service.

We truly believe in Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors. We will not 'pester' you with visits and phone calls. But we would love to see you! We also realize you have many great faith communities to choose from in our town, and if you do choose us we will do our best to help you feel welcome! Let us know how we can be in ministry to you.
