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!
The Many Names
Hello, beloved. My prayer is that you are…indoors! The heat is on. As you read these words, our team will still be in the province of Alajuela, Costa Rica. Interestingly, this time of the year, the temperature in this part of the world ranges from 65-75degrees, with torrential downpours every afternoon. So, while you are trying to stay cool, we are trying to stay dry. Praise the Living God!
Every now and then, the Lord brings a particular worship song, or hymn, or biblical passage to my heart, and gently commands me to dwell there for a season. For the past few weeks, that song has been Way Maker. When you have a moment, listen to it. The lyrics invite the worshiper to ponder the fact that, besides Lord and Savior, our God is also a way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper and light in the darkness. We could spend significant time studying each of these concepts in depth. The implications of these names for our life in Christ are tremendous. God desires that our relationship with him is rooted in the belief that He is our all in all. As you go through your day, call upon the Lord using these names. Taste and see that the Lord is good. (Psalm 34)
On July 7th, we will gather for a brainstorming session to discuss effective ways to better reach young adults and young families. (18-45 year olds) The gathering will take place at 2168 Sparrow Ct. in Sarasota. We will grill, swim and talk. You must RSVP by emailing Rebecca Conway at email@example.com.
Our July sermon series is based on the book of Daniel. Come and hear some of the most profound experiences in the life of the prophet.
May God continue to bless you and yours. Peace!
