Suntree Weekly Update
Check back here for the latest update on what is happening at Suntree!
Good evening Suntree!
We hope you all are doing well after yesterday’s tropical “event.” We are so grateful the damage to the Space Coast seemed minimal, and so thankful for the volunteers who helped make last minute preparations for some of our congregation members. We join you in praying for a relatively quiet rest of the season!
This week, we have some exciting things coming up! First, we are headed back to in-person worship on Sunday, August 9th! Remember, we have new requirements to keep you safe at https://www.suntreeumc.org/reopening/. You’ll need to sign up to attend your service of choice at www.suntreeumc.org/register. We are capping at 25% capacity for each service, so make sure you call the office or go online to get your spot! Remember, if you still want to be online you are more than welcome to be. Livestream will continue as normal, at both 9:30am Contemporary and 11am Traditional.
We will also offer our socially distanced version of communion this week, as we could not offer it this past Sunday due to the storm. So, if you’re home, get your elements ready, and if you’re coming, be prepared for our new, individually packaged way of doing communion!
We are still looking for a new Communications Director. This person will need social media, production, and copyediting experience to encompass the entire communications needed here at Suntree. For more information or to apply, contact Rachel Kalleward at .
If you missed it yesterday, we are still accepting donations for our Harbor City Back to School Drive by mail or online! We met our earlier goal, but Harbor City needs 60 more gift cards. So, lets show them our extraordinary love by donating to complete this project!
With that, we wanted to introduce a new resource and our August sermon series to you as we “Launch into Extraordinary Love!” As a part of our 4D vision plan, a team of servants at Suntree has created a Discipleship Process to help you identify where you are in your faith journey, and grow deeper in love of God, each other, and neighbors! The process is called “Launching into Extraordinary Love!” as we explore a launch pad metaphor and our e3 vision statement. Later this week, you’ll be able to access the map online in interactive and PDF versions.
The stages of the sequence are, Stage One: Initiate Launch in Loving God, Stage Two: Boost in Loving Each Other, Stage Three: Sustaining in Loving Neighbor, and Stage Four: Orbit in Extraordinary Love. In each of the stages, you’ll hear the story of Suntree come alive and continue in new and exciting ways, and you’ll have opportunities to engage more fully throughout the fall. We can’t wait to explore this each week with you in worship.
