Time for more than thoughts and prayers

Dear Edmonds UMC community ~

We can only imagine the overwhelming grief of the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas, as they sort through the loss of twenty-six lives to an angry and unhinged gunman. How can a community deal with the shooting of an 18-month old child, or a 14-year old girl, a pregnant mother, or eight members of an extended family? In a time like this there really is no alternative other than to trust in God's healing power to knit broken hearts back together again and to heal deep wounds and scars. With time and care and prayer we know there will one day be healing for this stricken community.

Our Homeless Program Needs a New Coordinator - Is It You?

When the weather is cold outside our church's homeless shelter program kicks into gear. In collaboration with other churches (we take our turn on Thursday nights) over 40 volunteers from our church pull together a complete homeless shelter at the Edmonds Senior Center. For years this effort has been coordinated by Coralie Shepherd who, at 80 years young, is now looking for a successor. Would you like to make a huge impact against homelessness? This may be the role for you. Please let us know by contacting the church office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Thanks!
