All are invited to attend worship and welcome Shultz and his family. Summer worship time is 10 a.m. at the church, 2025 11th Ave. S.
Shultz previously served the parish of Morgan, Bradford, and Lee Center United Methodist Churches in north central Iowa. The congregation of Epworth is excited about this new appointment as Erling brings with him a great passion for worship and preaching.
Erling Shultz is the husband to Barb Shultz, Fort Dodge Public Library director, and father to three grown children. He is licensed by the Iowa Conference of the United Methodist Church and is appointed by Bishop Julius Calvin Trimble to Epworth UMC.
