This Week’s Announcements

Mission Team is accepting 2019 Mission of the Month Applications

Applications are available in the church office and must be returned by October 1, 2018.


Soup’s On!

Ummmmmm, the hearty aroma of warm chicken noodle soup and a small sweet bread; it just speaks of good, old-fashioned love from the kitchen. Something new is being offered by SCCUMC’s kitchen each Wednesday: you may come to church and pick up a 32-oz. container of homemade gluten-free frozen chicken noodle soup and a small sweet bread for only $7.00.  Maybe a friend whom you visit would appreciate something like this, or perhaps you would when you don’t feel like cooking. There’s no better place in town to get tasty “Chicken Soup for the Soul”!  No reservation is needed; just come by the LEC kitchen between 11:00 and 12:00 p.m. every Wednesday to purchase Cash or checks (made out to Sun City Center United Methodist Church) are fine.


Nursery Staff Needed

Sunday morning and Wednesday evening opportunities available. Bilingual is a plus but not mandatory. This is a paid position. If you like working with little ones and would like a part-time job, this could be perfect for you. Please contact Pat Hill at (813) 634-2539, ext. 209.


Saturday Service Support Sign Up

Want to know a GREAT way to be in ministry with your Church?  With the rapid growth that both our Church and the South Shore area in general are experiencing, we will be starting Saturday services beginning September 8th in addition to our Sunday offerings. There will be a traditional service at 4PM in the sanctuary followed by a contemporary service at 5:30PM in the LEC.  While Pastors Charlie and Sam will preach at these services occasionally, Pastor Ryan will be the lead pastor for these new Saturday services.  Please prayerfully consider making a commitment to worship with us on SATURDAYS for the next 6 months beginning September 8th. Of course, you may wish to ‘double-dip’ and attend both Saturday and Sunday services!  You may call or visit the Church Office or see a dedicated Ask-Me person here on Sunday mornings to sign up.  Thanks so much for helping to reach out to our new friends and neighbors with the love of Christ!
