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

Thank you for your support in following SunCoast's MCC social distancing protocols. We continue to review them periodically and make any enhancements needed.

Please remember due to the increased cases of COVID if you are not feeling well, have symptoms of COVID, have been exposed or have tested positive for COVID please do not come into the church building or attend any of the outdoor events until you have quarantined for 14 days or have tested negative.  Please take a moment now, to review our protocols, including some new items in effect beginning on January 18.
Ongoing Protocols
  • Registration required.
  • Maintain 6 feet distancing.
  • Wear a mask at all times.
  • Do not move the chairs. They have been sanitized and properly spaced.
  • Attendance will be taken when you arrive.
  • Restrooms will be available on a limited basis.
  • It may be cool, so wear layered clothing and bring a hat or anything else you may need for your comfort.
New Protocols: Effective Sun., Jan. 18
  • We will provide a designated container for the participants to dispose of their empty communion cups as you exit the service.

  • We will have two donation baskets set up to place your offering when you check-in and as you leave.
Finally, if you have any suggestions or ideas about our current safety protocols and/or other recommendations, please let us know. Send us an email HERE.
Your ideas are welcomed.
Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson recently participated in a meeting with the Faith Director for President-Elect Biden's transition team. She was asked to provide insight and information on the LGBTQ community and what is needed to support faith within the family of God's people. Keep her and the entire transition team in your prayers as we work to heal our nation.
A big thank you to everyone who helped with Ride for PRIDE.

It was a beautiful day and a lot of fun.

Volunteers Needed:

Looking for ways to get involved at SunCoast MCC in a socially distanced way? We need you. As we continue to sponsor more in-person events, we are looking for people to help in many ways.

We have many opportunities and assignments, including:
  • Worship: Serving as a reader (e.g., announcements and scripture, etc.).
  • Recording: Working with the sound and camera team.
  • Outward Bound: Ensuring everyone is safe during in-person events (e.g., welcoming, usher, logistics, set-up, etc).
  • Ad-Hoc Events: Planning upcoming social events.

No experience is needed. We are looking for those willing to learn and feel a calling to help provide a meaningful worship experience for our members and visitors.

Email the church office or call to learn more about how you can become involved.
