Join us for the Second Sunday of Advent―Joy

Rev. Vickie Miller | Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson
SUNCOAST MCC NEWS FOR THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 6, 2018
CALM AND BRIGHT: 200 YEARS OF SILENT NIGHT
“Glories Stream from Heaven Afar”
Second Sunday of Advent

Joy
Sun. | Dec. 9 | 10AM
Join Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson’s sermon on the topic of joy. “Joy is born, not from pretending everything is fine, but from holding both hope and truth together. The Christian can stand in that in-between space of indecisiveness, the place of grief, even there with joy. Why? Because joy is the affirmation of the thing that is truer than any trouble, any affliction: the affirmation that Love wins. Jesus is as good as we hope, it’s all worth it, and all will be redeemed”.
Sarah Bessey

<span style=”color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;“>Join Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson’s sermon on the topic of joy. “Joy is born, not from pretending everything is fine, but from holding both hope and truth together. The Christian can stand in that in-between space of indecisiveness, the place of grief, even there&nbsp;with joy. Why? Because&nbsp;joy&nbsp;is the affirmation of the thing that is truer than any trouble, any affliction: the affirmation that Love wins.&nbsp;Jesus is as good as we hope, it’s all worth it, and all will be redeemed”. </span>

This year has been a season of joyful change and reaching out at SunCoast MCC, of welcoming new folks, and challenging ourselves to connect with our neighbors. We have reached out to do justice, created new programs and opportunities, and are becoming that beacon of hope and love for so many who need it. SunCoast MCC has been blessed by your generosity in the past; and, we hope that we have blessed you and others in return.

As you consider your holiday giving, we encourage you to consider the message and ministry of Suncoast MCC. Our goal is to end this year on a positive note and prepare for another year of service. Thank you for your generosity. You can express your gratitude for what God is doing at Suncoast MCC through volunteer opportunities and/or online giving.

Happy Thanksgiving

A Loving Note From
Rev. Vickie Miller and Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson
November 19, 2018
Dear Congregation Family and Friends,
Thanksgiving is one of those sacred holidays that has an uncompromised message: Give Thanks! Maintaining an outlook of thanks and gratitude, as we know, is one of the most sustaining and healthy life choices we can make.  
 
At SunCoast MCC, we have much for which to be thankful, both in our personal lives and in the life of our church. Having recently hosted the Inaugural Venice Pride, our team gathered afterwards for a review, ending in a circle to offer thanks. We were thankful for the weather, for the support of the mayor and commissioner, for the many well-behaved pets, for making many new friends and acquaintances, and for a safe and joyful event. But mostly, we were thankful for each other. We noted how many people from church volunteered and how well we worked together to support our common mission.
 
Those characteristics are something that we, as your pastors, are thankful for each day! Thank you for supporting us personally in the so many different ways that you do. Thank you for upholding each other, in times of stress, illness and difficulty, but also in the times of celebration and joy. Thank you for the ways in which you provide for the church’s programs, facilities and services. In short, thank you for caring!
 
May this Thanksgiving holiday resonate within you the joy of gratitude, as together we count our blessings and give thanks to our wonderful, gracious God.  
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Vickie Miller | Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson
