Welcome to our webpage
We are excited to get to know you more, to hear your stories, and to share our own.
First UMC of Eustis seeks to learn and better understand how to act to bring about God's Kingdom in the here and now. We are diverse in our experiences and perspectives and strive to live into our role as followers of Christ.
We are not perfect, in fact, we are quite broken in many ways...and we are seeking healing.
This world is full of places and opportunities for health, emotional, physical and psychological healing... but only in Christ can we find healing for our soul.
This is what we hope to be: a place to discover the healing grace of God and a faith community to walk alongside us in our brokenness.
We hope that in your best of times and in your worst of times, we can be a place that welcomes you with Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Doors.
Getting to know Pastor Chris -
Pastor Chris is a 33 year old Floridian who grew up in the Methodist church. He received a Bachelor degree in psychology from USF and a Masters degree in Divinity from Asbury.
We are excited about his arrival and his engagement to his fiance, Francisca. The two of them love to dance, which is how they met. They plan to marry in August in our Sturm Chapel.
Chris has worked as a youth director and a worship director for Methodist churches in the past and has served as a Chaplain at Tampa General Hospital for the past year.
