Bridges to Healing Through Faith
March 26, 2022
Join us via Zoom at 9:45am to say “Hello”
We will start promptly at 10am.
Join us as we explore “Bridges to Healing Through Faith” through scripture and sharing. We will be led by our guest speaker, Rev. Emily Sterling-Strongman. Don’t miss this opportunity to worship, grow and learn with your United Methodist Women sisters. We will be studying Luke 13:10-21. Rev. Emily A. Sterling-Strongman has served as the Executive Pastor at First United Methodist Church of Orlando since July 2019. It is a privilege and a joy to be in ministry with the people of First Church and one she hopes to enjoy for years to come. Emily is a Florida native growing up in Auburndale - a small town located off I-4 between Orlando and Lakeland. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Florida Southern College, majoring in English and Social Science, along with a Master of Divinity degree from Duke Divinity School at Duke University. She served five years as Associate Pastor at Trinity United Methodist Church in Palm Beach Gardens prior to serving at First Church. Emily and her husband Michael Strongman married on July 12, 2020. They live in Belle Isle with their dog Hazel Duke. Emily and Michael enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing games, traveling, and enjoying the outdoors with activities such as hiking, biking, and kayaking.
