Here's What's Happening in the Life of the Church

In-Person Worship! We've setup a separate page to address concerns of Covid-19 and In-Person Worship.

Just TEXT the word "check" to church phone number to let us know you are 'viewing' Worship services.

It's so easy! Some of us are attending in person but others still feel unsafe doing so.

After you watched the weekly message, use your smart phone to send a text message to the church phone # 352-683-2600. Text the word "CHECK" and send along, instantly you will be sent a link and if you follow that link you can check in yourself and any others in your household as having viewed the weekly message. This helps us stay connected to you and know that you are actively participating in the life of the church. Go ahead and save the number as a contact in your phone as there will be additional features available as well.

Please consider serving the Lord at your church, see link below!

New Walk Woman's Group

“If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.” ~ Dolly Parton.

Join us Friday May 20th at 7 pm in building A as we will be  playing Bible Jeopardy – in groups. We will share smiles and laughter. Contact the church office or Lynn Logue, and as always, BRING a FRIEND!


New Walk Women’s Group for June 17th at 7 pm.

Join us in June for “A Time of Being Grateful and Feeling Patriotic.” Following a brief devotion and time of prayer, we will create an inspirational stencil craft. Come and enjoy a time of fellowship and demonstrate your creativity. If you are not creative, no worries, we have our own experts to help.

Prayer and Healing Ministry- New Participants are always Welcome!

Spend an hour on Tuesday mornings at 9 am worshiping God with praise and prayer ending the time with the LORD's supper. The Intercessory Prayer and Healing service meets in the Choir Room. You are invited to join this faithful group of Prayer Warriors who gather for hymns, Intercessory prayer, and communion each week. They prayerfully intercede on behalf of the many requests we receive with petitions to the Lord.


We also have 64 Prayer Partners who receive weekly email updates for prayer requests. These requests come in by phone to the office, but mostly by prayer cards on the website. Phone calls and weekly communications with the church family is vitally important for this ministry and results in finding needs for prayer that way as well. We celebrate our Praises and answer to prayer also.

Prayer requests, updates and praises are shared each week as the Prayer list is updated and sent to all in the Ministry weekly.

Books of the Bible on video

At this time we offer a number of Old and New Testament Books of the Bible on our website. It is set up so you can choose which Book (even which chapters/verses of that book), you would like to view. This is great for those with limited sight or have difficulty reading. Each one lovingly recorded for your listening and viewing pleasure by members of SpringLife Church. All the New Testament books have been recorded.

Dine IN or Drive Thru Take-Out Tuesday Dinners

You have the option to Dine-in or Take-out reserved meals when you make your reservation. Doors open at 4:45 for those dining-in and dinner is served at 5:15 pm in building B.

FREE Tuesday Dinners is a hot & nutritious meal service each week. Pick-ups start at 5 pm. It is very important we use our resources wisely and an accurate head-count is so very helpful to reach that goal. Reservations can be placed from Thursdays through noon on Tuesday or when we have reached our limit of 160 dinners, whichever comes first. To reserve your meal(s) text the word "takeout" to the church phone #352-683-2600, or click the link below:

Monthly Ministry Updates

The United Methodist Men:

Come out for our last dinner meeting before taking a break for the summer will be Monday, May 9th at 6 pm in Fellowship Hall. Menu will be Lasagna, salad, and dessert for $5 PP. The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch will provide the program after a short devotion. All men of the church are invited. Sign up on the Central Hub. Hope to see you there.


L.I.F.T. Ladies in Faith Together

We had a successful spring luncheon that went very well with a good turn out. Also received several suggestions as to what different women want for our fall start up.

We also had an Appreciation Breakfast for the Friday Church Working Crew this past Friday, which was a success, and the men really appreciated being appreciated!

The LIFT Board is making plans to restart the Monday morning church ladies fellowship on September 12th, with coffee/dessert and a speaker. Also we will resume the Christmas luncheon as we have had in the past.


New Walk Ladies Ministry

New Walk Women’s Group continues to average 12 -15 people each month. The meetings begin in prayer followed by a fun and active time of participation allowing us to grow in fellowship and relationships. We end the meetings by lifting prayer requests and praying for the ministry. This past April Rich Kullberg led us in creating customized greeting cards! We will play Bible Jeopardy Plus in teams during our May Meeting. The group is open to all intergenerational ladies of the church and in our community, to build and strengthen faith and relationships. Ladies, join us and bring a friend.


Prayer Shawl Ministry

We continue to get shawl requests, and at this time have enough shawls for the immediate future. This includes adult and baby shawls. The Prayer Shawl Ministry has found these sizes to be best… For Baby Prayer Blankets: approximate size 29” by 29”. NO fringe please, and also solid soft colors are preferred. For Adult Prayer Shawls: 26” by 60” (no fringe), or 26” x 55” (with fringe). This adult size is very important—if they are too short, they don’t wrap around an adult comfortably. If they are too long and have extra fringe, they can get caught in the wheels of a wheelchair, or create a tripping hazard. Please bring completed Baby Blankets and Shawls to the office and Pastor Greg will bless them. Our next meeting is Wednesday May 18th at 10:30 am in classroom S#1 of building D. Interested? We have patterns and yarn for you to help us make the shawls.


The Library

Library volunteers are needed on Tuesday rotation from 10 am to noon and/or Sunday rotation fifteen minutes prior to church and fifteen minutes after. Training will be provided. Please contact Lynn Logue if you are interested.

The Church Library is open whenever the church is open. If the librarian is not available, you can check out books by writing your name and the complete date on the card and leaving the card on the desk. You will find the card in the back of the book, CD, or DVD. These items will be processed in the data base during the next day of operation.

Don't forget our Freebie shelf located just inside the main door on the left wall.

Thank you for your continued interest and support in the SpringLife Church Library. 


Food Pantry

In January we served 650 families. In February 663 family units came to our pantry and in March a record 790 family units came seeking food from our Food Pantry. The needs are growing in Hernando County as other pantry leaders are also telling of increased numbers of clients. Our homeless numbers are increasing as well and we refer them to Take Out Tuesday, People Helping People and Hernando County Social Services. We truly thank God for all who support us thru prayers and financial gifts, however, mostly for the dedication of the volunteers He has sent to us. Without them it would be impossible to meet the growth we're experiencing.

If you have a heart for serving the community, we are looking for additional volunteers to fill in the summer months while snowbirds and vacationers take time off. God Bless, ~Larry & Rose Milks


Take-Out Tuesday report

We get about the same number of meal reservations every month (165). Some of our volunteers have gone back up north for the summer and we have started to make lighter meals for the summer. Still have under twenty dine-in meals served in the fellowship hall and about 145 meals in the drive thru. ~Jan Griffioen 


Music Ministry

Chancel Choir practice has resumed for members who have been fully vaccinated - that includes about 30-35 positions.

We are seeking a church accompanist. Anyone interested in being considered for the paid position, please contact the church office.

I have been given the green light to take over the position as the Leader of the Praise Band and will be incorporating the music and Chancel Choir together more as time progresses this summer and fall with the one church service at 10:30 am. ~ David Pletincks


Congregational Care Report- Monthly Report

“Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galations 6:2

Care Companions

We currently have eight (8) active Care Companions. There are four (4) inactive Care Companions.

Care Receivers

We have not seen an increase in need in the past month and have a couple of Care Companions who could call on our members. 

Casserole Ministry is Ready to Expand

My original vision for this ministry was to provide this service to anyone who needs a meal. I think we are ready to take baby steps in that direction. The casseroles in the freezer can feed 1-2 people. If there is someone you know in your area of ministry who you feel could benefit by having a frozen casserole meal, please let me know via phone or text. I will give you instructions on where they are stored and what to do in order to get one.    402-681-3769-call or text Cheryl

Yours in Christ, ~Cheryl Miller


Next Gen Ministry

The NextGen Ministry has been busy, and we are on track with my 5 year plan based on Leviticus 19:23-25

Year one: Survey the land

Year 2-3: "Planting seeds of many kinds"

Year 4: Relentless Discipleship and Continual Pruning

Year 5: The year of Abundance

Currently for the NextGen Ministry:

Kids Church: We are now developing quarterly events for all kids within Kids Church as well as separate events for the various Kids Small Groups. Right now, we have a comfortable amount of volunteers, however with more volunteers, we will be able to be more effective in the future of this ministry at the rate we are growing.


Youth: We meet on Sundays at 5-7pm. We will soon be developing a Student Leadership Team. This Team will focus on Commitments to Christ and his Church through acts of service as well as developing ways in which to grow our group. We are starting to hit the cap of effectiveness until I can recruit volunteers for this ministry.~ Bryan Quinn
