Look who stopped by the Church Office...JOSHUA! Lets have some fun...what caption should go with this pic?
Some of you may remember Troy, the dog that visited APUMC last January and stayed with us here at the church while owner Belinda was getting her life together. He was destined for a rough, unstable life and melted our hearts pretty quickly (immediately). Long story short, weeks later, Kelly Gilbert adopted him and from there her daughter, Jeanna, blessed him with a beautiful life at her home in MD. Well...guess who came by today for a Christmas visit? named Maverick. He is stunning. God certainly had a hand in how all this turned out. Amazing outcome and this dog has so much love in his life now! (Before and after photos).
Too cute not to FB Share: Pastor Andrew packing heat, (well, really it's just Joshua in that vest) while doing custodial duties today. Anybody surprised at this??? I'm not! Daddy Andrew Miller makes no excuses, gets the job done no matter what! Sarah, he's making you proud over here!! Multi-tasking at it's finest!!

Mission: To Spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ

From the Clergy of the UM Florida Conference Dear Clergy and Laity of the Florida Conference:

Our cabinet formed a re-launch task force to begin looking at how we can help resource churches as they prepare to re-launch during COVID-19. We solicited input from you and received thousands of responses. Our initial guidance is downloadable below for your use. These guidelines will be regularly reviewed and updated. We have consulted government officials and health experts and will continue to review the latest guidance.

In summary:

Churches should plan to continue to offer on-line opportunities until a vaccine is readily available, knowing that many people will not feel comfortable returning to worship until that time.
We ask that no in-person worship services take place through June 15th. The actual date for when in-person worship services will resume is still being determined but we know it will be after June 15th.
We give guidance on some alternative worship models that could be attempted starting May 15th including house worship and drive-in worship. These require strict safety guidelines and should only be attempted in places where volunteers and staff are ready to monitor and enforce the guidelines.
We invite you to begin preparing for what in-person worship may look like after June 15th. We know you will need to adjust worship plans to allow for safety and social distancing. Detailed descriptions are provided for a variety of worship logistics. Walking through the logistics with key volunteers and staff will be essential.
We suggest you form a re-launch task force of lay and clergy leaders to explore how you will work through these guidelines in a way that honors your context.
At all times we encourage proper social distancing, handwashing, the wearing of masks, and for sick persons or persons who have been in contact with the virus to remain at home. We are especially concerned that those most vulnerable to the virus be vigilant in the days ahead.

Also in this document are guiding principles and scriptural foundations. We offer this guidance from a standpoint of our faith that calls us to love our neighbors and care for the most vulnerable.

Our rationale for a no sooner than June 15th date include:

Relaunching in-person worship presents a significant effort on behalf of church leadership. June 15th allows them enough time to prepare worship spaces and gather and train the necessary volunteer base.
By June 15th, we will have clearer results from the reopening of the state of Florida to guide us in our decision making.
Many in our state and in our church communities are part of the most vulnerable populations. Our clear guidance from the feedback we have received is to err on the side of safety.

We will continue to monitor the realities in our communities and adjust our guidance as needed.

Should you have specific questions, please reach out to your District Superintendent who can guide you.

May God continue to walk with us in this season. We pray now for those who are sick and all our front line workers who are keeping us safe.

We remain on mission together.


May 4, 2020

Today is the first day of our new Daily Devotionals series led by our new Pastor, Clark McClain! Each day will include a reading, a focus verse, a devotional for reflections, and a prayer. We invite you to join us in this opportunity to grow in our faith together even as we worship apart. Reading: Genesis 1-3 Daily Focus Verse: “And the LORD God said, ‘The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tr…

Today's Sermon: What Is and Is To Come

Oh Happy Day! Help us welcome Pastor Clark McClain to our congregation. We look forward to the day we can congregate in person. In the meantime, we will continue united by technology protecting ourselves and our families.

Let us lift these clergy, their families and the local churches in prayer, in the hope that we will more fully participate in our mission— “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world” (Book of Discipline, ¶ 120).

Bishop Ken Carter and the appointive cabinet of The Florida Conference of The United Methodist Church, in consultation with the clergy and authorized lay leaders of the local churches, announce full-time appointment changes, to take effect July 1, 2020. Read more here:

APUMC In-Person Service Cancellation: More information-

We have been following the news and out of an abundance of caution and following CDC recommendations, we have decided to postpone in-person church services until April 5. Although we know that this is not what anyone wants, it is what we feel is best for the safety of our congregants.

Please keep an eye out for sermons and readings that can be of interest to you. Use this break as a time of reflection, for giving thanks for our many blessings, and for praying for those affected by the Coronavirus.

As always, we value you being a part of our church family. We will see you on the 5th!
