Worship, Koinonia, Ash Wednesday, Blood Drive


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…

Every 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!

This Sunday, February 20th in Worship, we’ll continue our current message series called “A-Z: Our Identity in Christ”. This week, “M” is for “More Than a Conqueror”, “N” is for “Not Ashamed”, and “O” is for “Once was Lost, Now I’m Found”. Worship is at 10:45 a.m. Children’s Church will also be offered in the Family Life Center during the entire Worship Service.

Our spring semester of Thursday Night Koinonia has begun, but it’s not too late to join. We meet each Thursday evening from 6:00-8:00 p.m. for seven consecutive weeks. We begin each night with a free catered meal followed by the video series “H2O” by Kyle Idleman and discussion. Kids’ Programming is also available at Thursday Night Koinonia!

Byers will have a special Ash Wednesday Service on Wednesday, March 2nd at 7:00 p.m. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the church season known as Lent. These are the forty days (not including Sundays) that lead up to Easter Sunday. Ash Wednesday offers a time for deep reflection and repentance. All are invited to attend.

Our next Red Cross Blood Drive is scheduled for Tuesday, March 8th from 1:00-5:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center. You can register in advance at the following link: (enter BYERS) or simply come the day of the event.

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