We are on a mission to discover God’s Grace, change our lives, and change the world.

We welcome you no matter where you are on you faith journey. Our welcome, just like the kingdom of God, knows no boundaries of sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, age, economic condition, physical or mental ability.

New Adult Education...

What is Justice?  Do you think you know if something is JUST?  Do you think you know when something is UNJUST?  If you are not sure, don’t feel bad.  In the United States we have diverse views on the meaning and implementation of justice.  If we consider all the nations and cultures in the world, a definition of justice becomes even more elusive. This diversity of opinion is the main cause of our current cultural and political conflicts.  Starting on September 9, Stuart Lilie and I ask you to join us for a tour through different concepts of Justice.

We meet each Sunday morning at 9:30 in the Parish Hall.  Come early for food and fellowship.

The Spiritual Side of Edgar Allan Poe (1808-1849)

Begins Monday, September 17, 2018

Fall is Harvest time and Halloween--even in our beloved Florida. Spooks and goblins and mystery. How appropriate to welcome the mind and art of Edgar Allan Poe!

All of us know something about Poe, but you're in for a surprise. I've been fascinated by the misconceptions about Poe, about works by him I didn't know, and by the breadth and influence of his writing. Poe was huge influence on musical composers (Ravel, Rachmaninoff, and Debussy) and is the creator of detective fiction, science fiction, and the horror-supernatural story. He wrote love poems and a substantial discussion of God and the universe.

Grace & Grits
It is that time of the year again when St. Richard's partners up with the Grace 'n Grits Homeless Ministry to provide a warm meal to homeless individuals within the Sanford community. We are asking for volunteers to help prepare the food and serve the meal on Wednesday, September 26th at a NEW LOCATION, Sanford United Methodist Church. Volunteers can sign up at the Red Booth after each service on September 16th and 23rd. The "pig jar" will also be there to collect donations to help cover the cost of the meals. We will not have to pay a rental fee, as we have had to do in the past. We hope that you will be able to give your time or money to help this wonderful outreach program!
