“One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.”

(Psalm 145:4)

Every year the Epworth Church Association strives to bring in a wide-range of dynamic ministers. As you view the list of ministers preaching at Epworth in any given year you will be struck by the diversity represented. We invite ministers of all Protestant denominations. The ministers come from all over the country and also from outside the United States. It is this spectrum of ministers that meet the needs of cottagers who reside at Epworth Heights and also the variety of faiths from the surrounding Ludington area.

The public is welcome to attend our services in person at Epworth. Please see below for times and locations.

The Auditorium was constructed shortly after the founding of Epworth Heights in 1894 and is one of the oldest buildings at Epworth. It is used for church services as well as many special events held by the Epworth Church Association in the summer months.
