    What a joyous meeting we had! If you ever need an uplift, a friend, a real joyful occasion, just come to Evergreen Outreach.  For at least an hour, maybe more, you can cast your troubles away and let God fill your heart. Great music and good friends will help you get thru whatever or anything that is hurting you.   We welcomed many EO friends that we have not seen for at least a month, some since Christmas!

  • Jesus saved, now what will you do for God?

    My Lenten message is called, “What will you do for God?” It is based on the parable Jesus told of the two sons who were asked to go in the vineyard; one obeyed the father, and the other did not.

  • A time to focus on relationship with Jesus

     It is my hope that each of you are having a good Lent. Why good? Shouldn’t I be wishing that you are having a solemn, serious or remorseful Lent?

    At the First United Methodist Church, Evergreen Outreach scored a big success! With Beulah Brown as our leader, David and Patricia Pence (SoftFire) as our entertainment and the Rev. Joe Lawson to providing us scripture and prayer, we celebrated spring in Ireland with a St. Patrick’s Day theme. It was the best party in town!

  • The love that we get from Jesus is unlimited

    It is simply a smudge of black burned and crumbled palms from Palm Sunday a year ago. But it is more! It is a statement of God about us – “Dust you are and to dust you will return.”

    Love, caring and good wishes came in with guests for our early “countdown to Valentine’s Day celebration.” We are meeting on the first Monday of each month during the winter season.
    Turning to the stage, leader Beulah Brown welcomed the SoftFire duo of David and Patricia Pence from Hillsboro. Their musical theme was also centered on love – a tribute to Valentine’s Day.
