Eudora United Methodist Church is a growing congregation with a wonderful mix of newer attending younger singles/families and older adults that have been part of the church's rich history. We're a mission and service-oriented church that is constantly striving to grow in understanding God's love for us and in our response of sharing that love with others. We experience and share the presence of God's spirit in an intentionally blended music worship on Sunday mornings and in a variety of Spiritual Formation opportunities for all ages. Various Fellowship Groups also bring the congregation together for fun activities that meet through the year.
