Welcome to the Eastwood United Methodist Church website!
Caruthersville is a great place to be and Eastwood Memorial is a great church to attend.
Take some time and browse the site. Our goal is to be an "outwardly focused" church, taking the love of Christ beyond the walls of the building. In addition to bringing others to Christ, we want to make a positive difference in our community.
We have a casual service at 8:30 and a traditional service at 10:30. Sunday school is every Sunday at 9:30. We offer a chance to grow in many ways. We have activities throughout the week, small groups, Bible studies, and a loving, caring church family.
Look around the site. If you want to find a place to belong, a place where you can make a difference, an opportunity to impact others,
and a way to influence your community, join us at Eastwood memorial United Methodist Church in Caruthersville, Missouri.
Rev. Jerry Mattson, Pastor
Sunday, October 9, Brent will be giving the Operation Christmas Child presentation. Its time to begin filling our shoe boxes. Dedication Sunday is November 13 and our church goal is 75 gift filled boxes.
Remember to pray for the child receiving your box, and for God to guide you in choosing the items for your box. Some suggested items are the following: notebook, pencils & sharpener, soap & wash cloth, toy, shirt or shoes, the possibilities are endless. Just let the Lord lead you and have fun! Spreading the Gospel is about making a connection with others and telling them about Jesus. Something else to think about adding to your box is a personal note or photo of you or your family. These things men so much to a child and lets them know not only that God loves them, but others do too. OCCi s not just about giving gifts, it's about giving Hope for an eternal future in Christ.
