Because waiting ‘til Sunday is too long


“… as far as the east is from the west, so far he removes our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12


Welcome to THE WEDNESDAY WORD, a weekly communication of Emmanuel United Methodist.




With joy in our hearts, we gathered in the Emmanuel Sanctuary to worship together this past Sunday for the first time since March 8th. Thirty-nine of us gathered at 10 a.m. for our 35-minute worship service. We will still be posting worship services three places each week:

  1. On YouTube, which can be watched on your TV if your TV can get to YouTube as well as on your computer or smartphone. Search for Emmanuel United Methodist, Bradenton, FL. You can also ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ the worship service video you watched. ‘Subscribe’ and you’ll receive a message each time a video is posted to our YouTube Channel.  

  2. On our Facebook page, which links to our YouTube channel to play the worship service. Also search for Emmanuel United Methodist, Bradenton, FL. Again, you can ‘Like,’ ‘Follow,’ or ‘Share’ our Facebook page.

  3. On our website at www.eumcbradenton.org, which also links to our YouTube channel to play the worship service.

In addition to each week’s worship service, there are many prior week’s services in case you missed one as well as other videos of interest.



Our final goal with online worship services is to ‘livestream’ them on our YouTube channel, meaning that our live worship services will play on YouTube only in real time starting at 10 a.m. each Sunday. When we begin to livestream, which we anticipate in the next couple of weeks, we will no longer record a service ahead of time. Instead:

  1. You can watch live at the regular service time(s)


  1. You can watch the archived recording of the service on YouTube, Facebook or our Website once the archived copy is finished being prepared.


To watch either way, you can get to the video from one of three places, as described above. For those who liked to watch the service earlier than our regular service time(s), unfortunately that will no longer be an option. If you tune in at a regular service time though, you will be a part of what everyone who is there in person experiences in real time. If you tune in later to watch the archived recording, you will still see and hear what everyone experienced live earlier in the day in the service.

With love in Christ,

Pastor Kim Uchimura
