Register Today for Destination Dig VBS!

Kids in Pre-K thru Grade 5 will unearth more than dirt as they dig up exciting evidence that proves biblical events were not just stories. As junior archaeologists, kids will explore real-life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus! Along the way, they’ll discover the truth of Jeremiah 29:13, that God reveals Himself to us when we seek and search for Him with all our hearts.

Calling All Singers!

The Call Out Choir is scheduled to sing in Worship on Sunday, August 29.

Get Ready for the 2021 Eden Church Directory!

Plans are in the making for the 2021 Eden Church Directory! This is your go-to when you want to reach out to members of your church family, send cards, etc.. Information includes the names of members of your family, mailing address, email address, and phone number.

 

If your information has changed in any way since the 2020 Directory, please click the button below to let Julie know. The directory will be sent out in early September. If you do not wish for your information to be included, please let Julie know. If your information is not included in the directory, you will not receive one. 

We will also be doing a photo directory via the Eden Church Center App. More information to come on that. 

New Summer Series & Study

Psalm 23 is one of the bible’s most familiar passages, yet it makes some of Scripture’s most extraordinary claims: I shall not want…I will fear no evil. Do we believe them so deeply that we are ready to live as if they are true? The more we practice living in his presence, the more we experience the peace and freedom from worry that is promised in the psalm and is practical for our daily living. 

 

Order the book by Dallas Willard for your own personal retreat through the summer or study with your Life Group and let this series and take you further on your journey to know your Shepherd God.

Did You Know...

...that The Forge is a men's group focused on seeing men in this community becoming men of God in the midst of real-life situations. The Forge is a safe place for men to talk honestly and authentically about the challenges of being a man, especially a man of God, while being encouraged by other men who face the same challenges. Through it all, The Forge looks to Jesus as the example we strive toward as men. The Forge meets every other Thursday at 7pm at Commonway Church on Charles Street in Muncie. Next meeting is June 24.

Questions? Contact Matt Thornburg.

Do you have a knack for making folks feel welcome? Do you like coffee and donut holes? Well, we have just the spot for you to volunteer!

As we look to resume our snack table on Sunday mornings, we're looking for a team leader, along with a few volunteers to order and pick up donut holes, make the coffee, and keep the snack table looking great! See Diane Russell for details.

Our Hospitality Team Needs YOU!
