Youth Center

The Eastpoint Youth Center at the First United Methodist Church of Eastpoint is here to help local families.  We offer a fun and caring youth center whose mission is to provide healthy recreation, fellowship, and learning, in a structured, safe, Christian environment. And, we are always looking for volunteers to help.  Its a great way to serve and connect with our community!

Twice Blessed Thrift Store

Our thrift store is open to the public on Thursday and Friday (except holidays) from 10 o’clock to 1 PM.  Shop for low prices on gently used clothing (children, women, & men), shoes, linens, towels & pillows, kitchen items & appliances, books & DVD, toys, games, and electronics.  Enter from David Street because the store is at the back of the church building. All profit and donations benefit our youth programs.  Volunteers are needed any day of the week to help us sort through donations, and keep the thrift store stocked, clean and organized.  To volunteer, email us here.
