Yes, God so loved the world as to give the Only Begotten One, that whoever believes shall not die, but have eternal life. God sent the Only Begotten into the world not to condemn the world, but that through the Only Begotten the world might be saved.
-John 3:16-17

A welcoming, diverse and active community. We share God's love in a spiritual environment offering truth, trust and transformation!

Update on the Easter Offering
God is blessing us, SunCoast MCC, as we raise needed funds for our new flooring in the sanctuary, related projects, and to support our General Fund. 

As of today, we have raised $22,620 towards our goal of $25,000, which we hope to reach by Easter Sunday!

And, if your gift comes after Easter, trust us, we will need it to be able to get ready for worshiping in our sanctuary when the time comes!  

Thank you, always, for being generous and faithful! Every gift, large or small, is great in the eyes of our God, who sees our hearts! 

We look forward to seeing you in person or online at our Easter celebration this coming Sunday!

Guest Performance Eirinn Abu

During next Sunday's Worship, April 11th, Eirinn Abu a local musician and saxophonist will be performing.

Eirinn Abu gives the saxophone a new voice and sound. His peers call him the instrumental version of Josh Groban or Andrea Bocelli. Eirinn has a new recording of the number one love song of all time, “I Will Always Love You” with guest artist Dolly Parton on his Forever In Love cd.

"We have a music ministry, Music For Life Ministries, where we visit churches all over and serve Christ and touch lives through our music." Eirinn Abu is a talented saxophonist whose repertoire includes spiritual classics like "Amazing Grace" and soulful love songs like "I Will Always Love You".

Eirinn Abu and his wife, Brandy, enjoy visiting churches to worship and praise and share God’s music with everyone. Eirinn Abu has now performed and shared his testimony on how God saved his life in over 1,000 churches in the last ten years. You can expect a very blessed and moving experience that will warm your heart and feel the presence of the Holy Spirit.
