A Message from Pastor Brian
3/24 Update @ 12 pm
Dear Church Family,
The hymn writer Jennie Wilson said, “Time is ﬁlled with swift transition.” Those words have taken on a new meaning in the last few weeks. The situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) is unfolding quickly. For the ﬁrst time in my lifetime, churches have cancelled services. The services are cancelled, but your church staﬀ is still working for you.
It is critical that we continue to give and practice generosity to God and people. Even though the building will not be open, the critical functions of the church will continue. In order to continue, your ﬁnancial gifts are needed. You can mail checks to MUMC, 3925 Main Street, Middleburg, FL 32068, or use online giving through pushpay.
Please give often and generously so that we might continue to be faithful to God and our neighbors.
If you need help giving online, call the oﬃce and we can help walk you through the process.
3/26 Update @ 2pm
After more prayer and consideration, We will REMAIN CLOSED to ALL church services and activities through April 13th. We will revisit public worship after April 13th and we look forward to the day when we can celebrate together again.
The Middleburg United Methodist Men have suspended all classes and group activities until further notice. Men, you are encouraged to reach out, via phone or email, to the leadership team, anytime.
Jews For Jesus, that was scheduled for April 10th, will no longer be hosted at Middleburg UMC. Should online options be made available, we will share the details with you as we receive it.
