Englewood United Methodist is a “servant church” that makes its campus facilities available for a broad range of community activities as well as open to all for its numerous ministries. It has been a focal point for Englewood and the surrounding area for over 100 years. The large Sanctuary serves as a well-equipped venue for such quality productions as those of the annual EUMC Music Ministry Concert Series and Englewood Performing Arts Series (EPAS).
The Englewood Methodist congregation’s first church was on Green Street. Built in 1928, this building, recognized by the Sarasota County Register of Historic Places, was moved and saved by the Lemon Bay Historical Society. The Green Street Church Museum is now located next to the historic Lemon Bay Cemetery on Indiana Ave., Englewood. Admission to the Sing-A-Long is FREE but donations are welcome.
Note that the Sing-A-Long will be held at the Methodist Church located at 700 E. Dearborn Street (not at the Green Street Church).
