Solidarity Message
from SunCoast MCC

On July 16, we sent a solidarity message to our Jewish brothers and sisters. SunCoast denounced the vandalism against two Sarasota Jewish Communities: Temple Emanu-El and Temple Sinai. The temples were defaced with spray-painted swastikas and graphic anti-Semitic language. Religious motivated violence affects all of us. We stand united!

Rabbi Michael Shefrin's
Note to SunCoast MCC

In response to our solidarity message, Rabbi Shefrin sent us this note. "Thank you for these words. They are comforting and important. Wishing you and your congregation only good." Rabbi Michael Shefrin, Associate Rabbi, Temple Emanu-EL
We need  Your love and support now more than ever. Together let's keep our General Fund and Pillars accounts liquid. If you are able to make a donation to SunCoast MCC, please (click  HERE ) .
To minimally cover the Church expenses during this time, we need approximately $6,000 weekly. For week ending July 12, 2020, we collected $2,122.00 for General Fund * and $720.00 for Pillars ** .

* Funds the church's operating expenses (i.e., utilities, salaries, maintenance of property, worship/multi-media expenses, bank fees, internet, copier, office supplies, tithe, etc.)
** Funds the church's mortgage, insurance and taxes.
"Press on to the Goal"
Wonderful News! We have now raised in cash $15,000 of the match of the $25,000, only $10,000 to go to meet our final goal of $130,000!

Please join us. This promises to be a wonderful time of great fun, fellowship and an opportunity to see friendly/familiar faces. Since we all miss being together and seeing one another on Sunday and in the various activities in the life of our church and community, this is a fantastic way to say hi and connect!

  • Dig out your favorite ugly Christmas shirt/sweater. 
  • Dig through your holiday recipes and be ready to talk about your favorite holiday treat. Find a special ornament or decoration. You can share about it too.
  • We will have three prizes: 1st place $50 gift card, 2nd place $25 gift card and 3rd place $10 gift card.
  • Be ready to email us your recipes so we can create a memory document of everyone’s favorite holiday.

Christmas is a wonderful time of birth and reflection. Even during these uncertain and uncharted times, we are thankful for what we have, especially our SunCoast MCC family and friends. Join as we spread some Christmas cheer.

Bible Study Series:
Tuesdays at 4:30PM through August 11
They are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. We’ve all heard or said these words. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways.

  • Everything happens for a reason.
  • God helps those who help themselves.
  • God won’t give you more than you can handle.
  • God said it, I believe it, that settles it.
  • Love the sinner, hate the sin.

Join the Pastors to explore and unpack these “half truth” phrases.
