Epworth UMC has been serving and sharing the Good News with the people of Fallon, Nevada for over 100 years. We define ourselves by a distinctive openness and welcome that is born of an absolute certainty of God's love for each person, and our responsibility to love one another as God has loved us. It is a part of our DNA to be active in our community, joining with our neighbors in the joys and sorrows of life, and serving those in need. If you are searching for a church home, you are very welcome to join us in worship on Sundays at 9am or call to talk with Pastor Dawn any time, 775.671.5553. We would love to meet you!
A little more about what "welcome" and "openness" means to us:
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, straight,
gender fluid, filthy rich, or dirt poor.
We extend a special welcome to crying newborns, harried parents,
those who are skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.
Or more than a few :-)
You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up or just got out of jail.
We don’t care if you’re more religious than the Pope, more Methodist than Wesley,
or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s baptism.
We welcome soccer moms, Greenwave dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food lovers, squids, and jarheads.
We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted.
We welcome you if you’re having problems, if you’re down in the dumps,
if you are thrilled just to be alive, or in need of a prayer. Whether you had church shoved down your throat as a kid, if church was the place you felt most loved in the world, or if you don’t like “organized religion”.
We’ve been there too.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both.
We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts, cynics… and you!
