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 26, 2020, we collected $1,722.00 for General Fund * and $545.00 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.

Vocal music is an integral part of lifting the word of God to greater heights in worship. Group singing allows people to come together and express their faith and joy in community.

Through the virtual choir experience, we can create this experience together in a safe way, even in these uncertain times. I would very much like you to be a part of a virtual choir piece that we will use for our online worship at Suncoast MCC. Let’s make a joyful noise!

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.
