Worship, Preschool, Thursday Night Faith and Fellowship


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…

This Sunday at our 10:45 a.m. Worship Service, we’ll begin a new message series called “Philippians: Letter of Joy”. It’s interesting to think that joy can be found even in difficult circumstances. In fact, the author of Philippians, the Apostle Paul, wrote his letter while under house arrest. You can find out more this Sunday as we take a look at the first chapter of Philippians. We’ll also celebrate Holy Communion and August birthdays and anniversaries. Since it is the first Sunday of the month, we will not offer Children’s Church. Kids are invited to participate in our Worship Service.

Little Light Preschool wraps up its Summer Program today and is currently enrolling for the 2022-2023 school year. This fall we are expanding to offer a 2-year-old program as we welcome Miss Nicole to our preschool staff. Space is limited in both classes, so don’t hesitate to enroll. For more information on our preschool, please check out our website at

I’m excited to announce that our next session of Thursday Night Faith and Fellowship (formerly known as Koinonia) begins on September 8th. We’ll be doing a five-part study on Bob Goff’s “Everybody, Always”. Each night begins with a free catered meal followed by a video and discussion. Sign-up by sending me an email at, by calling me at 417-317-4753, or by responding on Facebook.

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

Pastor Chuck
