There is no need to be perfect around here. We are just a group of imperfect people that are doing our best to love God and one another, to grow together as followers of Jesus Christ and to serve our neighbors, community and the world. We were created to worship and we were created to worship together. Our Sunday morning services are an opportunity for people to come together and enjoy being together - whether its their first time or they've been coming for years. Coming together for worship reminds us that we are better together.
Who We Are
Limona Village Chapel is a United Methodist Church that began in the rural community of Limona in 1916. It was originally a United Brethren Church that began meeting in a small school building. The church eventually bought the school building and moved it to its current property. In 1968 a fire completely ruined the sanctuary. That same year the United Brethren Church and the Methodist Church merged and became The United Methodist Church. Later that year the new sanctuary was built. Today, Limona Village Chapel continues much of its heritage of helping people know Jesus by living God's presence through love, growth and service.
Garrett Rocha the pastor of Limona Village Chapel in Brandon Florida. He has been a pastor in the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church for the past 5 years, serving at Spring Lake United Methodist and St. Andrews’ United Methodist. Garrett has a passion for Fresh Expressions and community based ministries. He enjoys many forms of literature, art, and pop culture and loves to use them during sermons and small group studies to connect scripture with life today. When he is not serving at the church, Garrett can be found spending time with his wife Laurel of 4 years and their border collie Ace. They love to play board games with friends, experiment in the kitchen, and spend time gardening.
In Our Church
