Day Camp, Immunization Clinic, Kona Ice


Good morning, everyone! Thank you for being part of our church’s mission of “…making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Here is some of what’s going on at Byers Avenue UMC…

Check out our weekly recorded Worship Services, Midweek Meditations, and other information at

This Sunday, July 25th in Worship, we’ll continue our current message series on “Spiritual Gifts”. Specifically, we’ll be looking at the gifts of manifestation. Find out more this Sunday. Worship is at 10:45 a.m. Also, Children’s Church will be available during the entire service for those who would like their child(ren) to participate.

Each Sunday morning, we offer two Adult Discipleship Studies from 9:30-10:30 a.m. The Challengers meet in their classroom downstairs, while our Adult Discipleship Class meets in the Chapel outside the Worship Center. Remember, too, that we have Children’s programming available during this time in our Kids’ Crossing area downstairs. Join us for either of our Adult Discipleship Classes or for our Children’s programming and stick around for Worship!

The church will be offering a free Covid-19 Immunization Clinic on Tuesday, July 27th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. This is in partnership with the Joplin Community Clinic. All are invited to participate!

Our partnership with First UMC in offering Summer Day Camp has been a success. Around seventy children have had the chance to play games, sing songs, etc. Most importantly, they’ve had the opportunity to learn more about Jesus! Thank you to our volunteers and those who have supported camp through their prayers and giving!

The Kona Ice truck will make a return to Byers Avenue on Sunday, August 1st following our 10:45 a.m. service. Everyone in attendance that day will be treated to a flavored ice treat.

That’s all for now. Keep loving God and one another! And, as always, stay on mission! Have a blessed day!

Pastor Chuck
