MESSAGE UPDATED on March 27, 2020



Dear Friends,

In Psalm 121, we read:

I lift up my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.


This is as true today as when it is written. Spend some time in the Psalms this week for our help truly does come from the Lord our God.


Our Bishop and his Cabinet have advised us to continue to suspend worship through April 12, 2020, therefore we will continue to suspend worship through that day, which is Easter Sunday. The Bishop will be re-evaluating where we are every two weeks so please continue to be in touch. If you have internet access, you can watch the sermon HERE on our website by clicking the SERMONS link in the upper right of the screen. We will be recording and posting sermons on the website by 9:30 a.m. for each of the Sundays worship is suspended. Please check the website often for updates.


For those wondering what to do about your offering envelope, we would very much appreciate it if you would mail it to the church at: 5115 Cortez Rd W, Bradenton, FL 34210.


Through April 12th, the church office will be closed to visitors, including members, though the staff will be in for brief periods. ALL meetings and events on the church campus continue to be suspended.  Should you need to speak with someone about a need that cannot wait until we are re-opened, please call the church office and listen for the emergency contact procedures in the message that plays when we are not open. You may also send non-emergency emails to the church office at secretary.eumc@gmail.com.


If you know any others who might not have received the message about suspending worship through April 12th, please contact them and let them know.


Continue to pray for each other and our community, nation and world.


With love in Christ,


Pastor Kim Uchimura
