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!
A New Season
Greetings! As I write these lines, it is pouring outside my office window. It has been an unusually wet summer and I am ready for it to be over. I am looking forward to the last few weeks of the baseball season, and the beginning of the football season. More than that though, I am truly longing for the start of this new season in the life of our church. In a few days our children and students return in full force to their Wednesday night gatherings. The adults will begin the Alpha Course. In short, a season of new beginnings!
On Sunday afternoon, during our staff planning retreat, the Lord led me to share the following passage: Then Joshua said to the people, “Sanctify yourselves; for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” (Joshua 3:5) The leader of the Israelites was urging the people of God to prepare for a new season in their lives and history. The journey toward the Promise Land was now imminent. The challenge was indeed to prepare to go to a place they had never been before. One can only imagine the sense of expectation, and hope. I invite you to allow these words to sink in…
I pray that this new season will bring you and yours to a place in your faith you have never been before. I pray that God will surprise you, amaze you, and challenge you to allow Him to take you deeper in your relationship with Him. I also pray your family joins us, as we embark in this leg of the journey together, and discover the wonders God will do among us. See you soon. To God be the glory for the things He has done!
