Welcome to the Eldersville United Methodist Church home on the world wide web!  EUMC has been serving Christ and the Eldersville, PA community since 1829.  We are celebrating our 180th year of ministry in 2009, and our love of the Lord, and excitement in sharing His Word continues to grow!  Please join us as we continue "building on a firm foundation."

Our church is more than just a building and a place to worship on Sunday mornings.  Our church is a home for the church family.  We laugh and cry together, celebrate successes and learn from disappointments together, worship and pray together... we are one family through Jesus Christ our Lord.

It is our prayer that everyone may experience a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  That relationship grows stronger through the support of the church family.  Our missions and ministries are varied.  Opportunities to learn, share and witness are available to all of God's children.  Use our "internet home" to get to know us.  But, we invite you to worship with us... participate in one of our events or activities.  Let us welcome you home!

Church Bio

Eldersville United Methodist Church (EUMC) has been serving the community of Eldersville, Pennsylvania since 1829.  Worship is celebrated every Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. (8:00 a.m. & 10:30 a.m. during the summer).  Holy Communion is shared the first Sunday of each month and is open to everyone.

EUMC is a small "country" church that values family and community.  Sunday worship attendance in 2005 was 83.  Special Sundays are celebrated to acknowledge the contributions of our "family" to our church home and to the tri-state (PA, WV, and OH) area.  Worshipers travel from Avella, Burgettstown, Eldersville, and Paris, PA., Colliers, Follansbee and Weirton, WV and surrounding areas. 

Children are welcome and invited to participate during worship.  There is a special children's message each Sunday, as well as activity bags and childrens bulletins.  A staffed nursery is offered for children up to 5 yrs of age during the 10:30 a.m. service.  A small crying room at the rear of the sanctuary is available to parents who prefer to remain with their young children during worship.

EUMC is a Safe Sanctuary, which means that all of our staff, that works with children (teachers, assistants, pastor, nursery staff...) have had both a criminal background and child abuse hotline check.

On June 4th our pastor Rev. B.T. Gilligan graduated with a Masters of Divinity from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.  Rev. Gilligan was then appointed to Harrisville UMC to begin on July 1, 2011.  We wish him well in his new Pastorate. 

On July 1st our new pastor, Jim Sands, will begin his duties at EUMC.  Pastor Jim has been part of the United Methodist Church of Carmichaels his entire life.  He was involved with Pastor-Staff Relations, Trustees, Sunday School, Youth Ministry and even spent time as a custodian.  He served in the public school system as a substitute teacher for seven years in two school districts.  For the last seven years he has been the manager of a small pizza restaurant in Waynesburg. Jim and his wife, Kristen, were married in 2006 and are expecting their first child in October.  Please come and join us in welcoming Pastor Jim and Kristen to our church family.
