Bishop Carter, Guest Preacher


Happy Pentecost Everyone!

Sunday’s service will be a bit different as we let Bishop Carter and the Cabinet of the Florida Conference lead us in worship.  In recognition of the increased workload in local churches during the pandemic, the Bishop and Cabinet wanted to help everyone take a bit of time off as we all edit video, try to do worship online, and various other things we weren’t doing in February!  You’ll get to hear voices from all across the United Methodist Connection here In Florida, celebrating together and worshipping God with us!  We’ve also got an exciting announcement from the Trustees about some upcoming steps in our re-launch plan coming soon!  I hope you all have a Happy Father’s Day and we all find a way to honor our fathers (or dads) this weekend.  


Sunday’s Service—if you log in to your Google/YouTube account about 10-15 minutes early, you will be able to easily access the chat and fellowship through the YouTube premier page both before and during the service. Find the premier page on our YouTube channel at: 6/21/20 Online Service.  The premier page will be active from the moment the video is uploaded, so you can practice any time this weekend!

We have introductions to both our SPKidz Church and iClub lessons on our YouTube channel. After you watch the introductions to the lesson, be sure to download the packet with discussion questions and activities to do at home!

We will also have a special lesson and learning for our iClub at 10:00 on Sundays, just as we would if we were together!  You will be able to access this through Zoom, which is an online conferencing tool. Contact Kraig by email for directions on how to access this.

The Youth will be meeting in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday evening at 4:30pm as part of our re-launch plan approved by the trustees. This week’s meeting is at a different time and place than usual, so please remember 4:30!  Masks will be required, and a meal will not be served during this socially-distanced youth group return!  See Kraig’s email for more directions if you are interested.
