Community Activities

Children working on a community projectFor over 50 years, Embry Hills United Methodist Church has been a active and supportive part of our community. Having gone from being in the outskirts of Atlanta, to the home of ‘spaghetti junction’ between Doraville and Tucker, Embry Hills continues to change and evolve, and EHUMC along with it.

Offering outreach and mission activities to those in need in our community, as well as giving opportunities for activity, involvement and volunteerism for community service to those who may still be seeking a church home, EHUMC welcomes all to receive or give through our various activities. Read about our regular, on-going activities and check our seasonal events and announcements for other opportunities.

Join us as we make the world and our community a better place.

Support & Nurture programs address the mental, emotional and spiritual needs of our members and the community. Spiritual and emotional comfort takes many forms, even outside the scriptural word of the Bible. Secular-based programs of support for families and children in need are doing God’s work and tending to His children of all ages.

As a mother whose 6 children seem to eat all of the time, I was shocked to discover that there were children, possibly in my neighborhood, who were not eating adequately… so we’re doing something about it. — Beth S.

Blood Drive at EHUMCYour body is a temple. Man does not live on bread alone…nor Scripture alone. So, get off the couch (or knees bent in prayer) and get moving! The longer and healthier you live, the more good work you can do for the Lord.
