*** IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS UPDATE ***
Our Bishop, Ken Carter, has asked all Florida United Methodist Churches to cancel public worship services through Easter.
However, we will have ONLINE worship every Sunday morning at 10:00 AM on our Braden River UMC Facebook Page (click link above)
This is in response to the CDC’s recommendation of the postponement or cancellation of gatherings of more than 10 persons.
Therefore, we will not have public worship services at Braden River UMC through Easter.
This is for the safety of our congregation and community as we work to minimize the spreading of this virus.
We will provide updates here on our church website, www.BradenRiverUMC.org,
our Braden River UMC Facebook page, our church sign, and on our voicemail message at the church.
Please remember to send your tithes and offerings to the church,
as our bills will remain the same during the weeks that we are not meeting for worship. Our church address is:
Braden River UMC
5858 44th Avenue East
Bradenton, FL 34203
Let’s continue to pray for one another and for our entire world during this time. Remember the words of Jesus in John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
We believe that the door to God is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to connect people with God and with one another, while helping each person to use the gifts that God has given them to serve others in love. We seek to demonstrate God’s love in each moment. Through works of community missions and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
Our church offers a traditional setting for your most sacred celebration. Pastor Jeff has officiated many weddings and would be happy to help you to plan your dream wedding.
