Welcome to the First United Methodist Church of Eureka! We are located
on Main Street in the center of downtown Eureka. Our Church consists of both
a magnificent stone building with arched inside architecture and a bell
tower complete with working carillon (bell music that plays three times
daily), as well as a beautiful education wing built in the 1960's that is as
appealing inside as it is outside. The only thing that sounds more
majestic than the carillon outside is the original pipe organ inside.
Worship at the Eureka UMC is a "must" for those visiting our historic town!
Cross and Flame is a registered trademark, and the use is supervised by the
General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) of The United Methodist
Church. Permission to use the Cross and Flame must be obtained from the GCFA,

Christian vocation is a life of holiness, "faith working in
love," that first embodies the commandment to love God through an inward or
personal holiness - "holiness of heart."1
Holiness of heart is loving God with our whole being.1
It involves total
commitment to God, singleness of intention, centering one’s life completely
on God. It includes believing in, trusting, loving, worshiping, and obeying
God. It consists of constant reliance on God’s grace and using the gifts
God gives us to become what God intends us to be.2
