MESSAGE UPDATED on May 30, 2020


Dear Friends,


In 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 we hear these words from Paul after he pleaded with the Lord for the thorn in his flesh to be removed:  But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.


Depend on God’s grace as we continue to live in these days of uncertainty.


I am so sorry to let you know that our worship services are now suspended through June 15, 2020 due to the recommendation of Bishop Carter. You can read his letter here: https://www.flumc.org/guidance-on-re-launch-and-no-worship-through-june-15th. We will continue to post video sermons on the website by 9:30 a.m. for each of the Sundays worship is suspended.


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


While the church office will continue to be closed to visitors through June 15th and all meetings and events on the church campus remain suspended, our staff will continue to do the essential duties. Send non-emergency emails to secretary.eumc@gmail.com or you can leave non-emergency phone messages. If you have an emergency need to speak to someone, please call the church office and listen for the emergency contact procedures in our after-hours message.


Please pass on this information to any others who might not know.


Rest in his love and care in prayer and reading the Bible. Continue to pray for each other as well as our community, nation and world.


With love in Christ,

Pastor Kim Uchimura
