Worship In Person and Live-Streamed


Join us at 10am this Sunday June 4, 2023 at our temporary home Refuge Church,

1901 Brantley Road, Fort Myers

Live Streamed Sunday Worship

on YouTube click here

On this first Sunday in June, Mark’s Message will consider the account of a deep conflict in the early church as presented in the Book of Acts, and how its resolution might speak to us regarding the conflicts and divisions in our lives, society and nation.


In addition, we will celebrate the Sacrament of Communion together as a spiritual community, and be blessed with music from Dr. Albert and soloist Fred Nordstrom.

Bible Study


This Thursday, June 8 at 11:00 AM on Zoom only


Each week, we explore the Scripture passage(s) being used in Worship that coming Sunday. These sessions are largely “guided discussion” in approach, focusing on your questions and insights from reading the texts ahead of time, with Mark facilitating and adding relevant context and detail as needed or wanted.


This approach allows for participants to engage with the Bible creatively, and with an eye toward how the texts speak to us in our time and lives. In addition, they are great prep for getting more out of the Sunday Messages!


We hope you will take the time to join in.



Spiritual Exploration


Our next Spiritual Exploration Unit begins in mid-June!


“The Original Biggest Loser: The Book of Job”


Tuesdays: June 20, 27; July 4, 18 and 25

7:00-8:15 on Zoom


It has been described as both one of the most quoted and least read books of the Bible. But it is also considered to be one

of the most vital in terms of engaging us in the difficult theological and spiritual subject of suffering, especially

God’s and our connection and response to it.


Part biblical analysis, part theological exploration and part character study, this five week unit will focus on the actions of God, Job and the other most prominent characters in the book as a way of exploring those important themes.


As always, a reminder including the needed information for joining in will be sent by email the day before each session.


Please note: This will be our last Spiritual Exploration Unit until mid-September. We will then resume regular units throughout the year until the following August.



Despite our ongoing displacement, energy, enthusiasm and participation on Sundays remains high, including the regular presence of visitors. In that regard, if you are considering becoming a member of SCUCC, please let Rev. Mark know. After you and he discuss the expectations and, as the old commercial says, “the benefits of membership”, you and he can schedule a Sunday that works best for you to become an official part of the SCUCC community.

Our mission is to love all people…grow in faith…and work toward God’s vision of justice, healing and joy. 
Our character is to reflect the teachings of Jesus Christ: acceptance, forgiveness, kindness, respect
(for each person, our islands and our earth),
joy and love toward one another. You'll find us a positive,
non-judgmental place 
for you to worship, praise, rejoice and find the purpose our Maker has for
each of us, provided each week in a positive and uplifting message. 
Our church is one where you will be loved, accepted, supported, and affirmed regardless of your
age, class, ability, race, ethnicity, gender identification, or sexual orientation.  
No matter who you are, or where you are in your life journey, you are welcome here!
