Key EUMC lay and staff budget stakeholders heard some grim news last Tuesday night — our 2018 pledge campaign has resulted in the potential need for staff layoffs. Called together by our church’s Finance Committee, nearly two dozen leaders met for over two hours and combed through the 2018 budget, looking for creative ways to balance income and expense while also maintaining our current level of staffing.
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.
Enjoy a selection of hors d'oeuvres, desserts, delicious wines, and non-alcoholic drinks.

Winter is the perfect time for focusing attention on our lives with God. This retreat is for this express purpose. Led by Pastor Sandy Brown, it will include music, small group experiences, spiritual directors, evening Vespers, a sustained period of silence, and opportunities for creative expressions. You choose what is right for you!
If you were in church on Sunday you may have heard some new sounds coming from our wonderful Visser-Rowland pipe organ.
