What's Happening ?

Festival of Lessons & Carols

Join the members of Gulf Cove United Methodist Church for special Christmas programs of music on Sunday, December 10. 

The Festival of Lessons & Carols program will be performed at the 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. traditional services, and at the 9:30 a.m. contemporary service. 

Bring song into your Christmas season! 

Join us for Family Movie Night on Friday, December 15th at 6PM.

There will be free popcorn.  Bring your own snacks and drinks.

Please no kid drop-offs.

See you then.

The congregation of Gulf Cove United Methodist Church invites you to join them in celebrating the birth of Jesus at one of their three candlelight services on Sunday, December 24. 

The first service at 5:00 p.m. is a contemporary service for the whole family.

Our traditional Christmas Eve service will be held at 7:00 p.m. 

At 11:30pm, partake of Holy Communion at a quiet, more meditative service. 

Please join us on this holy night. 


Not everyone is upbeat and cheery for the Christmas holidays. There are many reasons to feel blue – dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other disease that puts a question mark over your future.  These and many other situations can make parties and joviality painful for many people.  

If you or someone you know is having a difficult time this Christmas season, please join us at Gulf Cove United Methodist Church on Monday, December 18, at 6:00 p.m., for a special service of remembrance and hope.  Jesus came into a broken world.  Let Him help mend your heart as we celebrate His gift. 

As part of God’s family, and Gulf Cove’s family, your gifts, talents and time are important to us!  

We have lots of opportunities to be involved on the attached form.  Please consider these needs and your gifts prayerfully and join the fun.

This is a great way to meet people, plug into your passions and grow our ministry.

Just fill out the form and drop it in the offering plate on Sunday or drop by the office Monday through Thursday.

Don’t hesitate to ask questions.  Remember, you can sign up and treat it like a trial period. 

FLAMINGO FLOCKING ~ The Youth and Jackie Guerin, our Youth Director, are bringing back this youth fundraiser

This is such a fun way to help support our youth.  You don’t have to be a church member to be a flocker or a flockee!



Closet of Hope Temporarily Closing

The Closet is open every Saturday from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm, in #C building, with free closing for all ages. 

However, because of damage caused by Hurricane Ian, the last day the Closet will be open is Saturday, May 20. 

After the necessary repairs are made to the building, we WILL reopen.  We will not be able to accept any donations until we reopen.

Pardon Our Dust!

Our church building and grounds were hit hard by Hurricane Ian.  Tough to have services without a complete roof!

Yet, you can’t hold back the love of God and family.  Our church family is no different.  After a couple of weeks working hard together, we resumed services with one outdoor service.  What a joy!

Next we moved indoors, with one service at 10 AM.  We blended the traditional and contemporary music–everyone was thrilled!

After months of two services, we have returned to our normal three service times.  

Please join us for the service that fits you.

Work is in progress.  But as we know from our own homes, this is a slow process.

We will rebuild.  Come and be part of this family that even hurricane winds can’t blow apart!

Online Services and Sermons​

We all know that feeling when you realize the Pastor’s sermon is talking about what you are going through. As Pastor Mike starts his sermons…”may the words that come from the tip of my tongue be words we need to hear today.”
