Welcome, and thank you for visiting Braden River United Methodist Church online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.

Please join us each week for worship and bible study!


Our Bishop, Ken Carter, has asked all Florida United Methodist Churches to cancel public worship services until further notice.  

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 until it is safe for all of us.  

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.”

Our Mission


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.


Psalm 119: 105 reminds us,

"Your word is a lamp for my feet,

    a light on my path."

Let's read God's Word each day.
