We would like to welcome you to St. John’s United Methodist Church located on Proctor Road in Sarasota, Florida. Currently have three worship services on Sunday mornings – two Traditional and one Contemporary. Our congregation is welcoming and focuses on loving others, growing in Christ, serving Jesus and sharing our faith. You will be able to connect with one of our small groups, whether it is our energetic children, amazing youth, patient adults or caring seniors.
We invite you to join us for one of our worship services or a special event. Hope to see you soon!
An Invitation to Discipleship!
Hi, there. I pray you are well, and enjoying the last few weeks of summer. My first month as pastor of St. John’s UMC has come to an end and what a month it has been! I have had a number of conversations with lots of folks and have been encouraged by the ideas and thoughts of others. These have reminded me of why it is we do what we do. The call remains a call to make disciples.
As we start wrapping up the summer, we begin to look to fall, and to a new season in the life of our church’s discipleship ministry. I want to invite you to join us as we kick things off by offering The Alpha Course. Yes, every Wednesday evening beginning September 7th, from 5:45 p.m. until 7:45 p.m. you will have the opportunity to join us for a meal, a time of fellowship, followed by a time of study. The Alpha Course is designed to help some discover a life of faith, and others to grow in their existing faith. So, wherever you are in that very broad spectrum, Alpha is for you! The children will be able to attend the Pioneers, and students, grades 5-12 will attend their specially designed Youth Alpha. In addition, this will be a tremendous opportunity for us to invite a friend or neighbor to come and see that the Lord is good.
Once upon a time, I heard that with Christ, we live, and without Him, we merely exist. I do not know about you, but I want to live. So, let’s get a life together! Will you pray about attending The Alpha Course?
I am thankful for the opportunity to serve as your pastor. Blessings to you and yours!
In God’s love,
