Discipleship Hour, Worship, Give 'em Five, Save the Date


Hi, friends. Thank you for all you do for the mission of Byers Avenue UMC! Together we are “…making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Here’s some of what’s going on at the church…

Every Sunday from 9:30-10:30 a.m. in our Kids’ Crossing space downstairs, our children are involved in Sunday School. Currently, our children are preparing for their upcoming Christmas Program, which will be held on Sunday, December 13th at the beginning of our 10:45 a.m. Worship Service. All children are invited to participate in the Children’s Christmas Program!

Also, during the 9:30-10:30 a.m. hour, our adults have the opportunity to participate in one of two Adult Discipleship classes. Our Challengers Class meets in their classroom downstairs and uses material from “Adult Bible Studies” to dive deeper into God’s Word. Our newest Adult Discipleship group meets in the Family Life Center. This week, they’ll begin a video-based study from Right Now Media called “The Christmas Experience”. All are invited to grow deeper in their faith through our Adult Discipleship Classes!

In Worship this Sunday, November 22nd, we’ll have “A Thanksgiving Message” called “…But, God…”. Regardless of the struggles, sin, or failings you might have in your life, God is a redeeming God. Find out more this Sunday. Worship is at 10:45 a.m.
