THE PASTOR'S DESK
Byron Center U.M.C. is gearing up for the Fall season and we are very excited about the activities that we have to offer you! We hope you will check them all out on our website, but I would like to share just a few of them with you now.
In our Celebration Worship Service we will be studying the book of Acts. I am calling this series Movement+Momentum=Multiply. We are going to look at the church in the first century, and see how we can apply it to our lives today. It should be a fascinating journey. Additionally, during our worship service, we have the pleasure of enjoying our multi-talented Praise Team.
We also have a new Sunday School program for youth entitled “Kids’ Time.” This program is for ages preschool to 6th grade. It meets after the start of the worship service when those interested in participating will be dismissed from the service and then convene in the classrooms in the lower level of the church. In class, students will engage in a children’s ministry which includes music, crafts, and bible lessons. The kick-off for this program is Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018. Adult Sunday School classes will meet at 11:00 a.m., and our Youth Group, which we refer to as BRAVE, meets Sunday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. BRAVE is geared for youth 6th to 12th grade.
A few of the other opportunities we offer: Beginning on Sept. 10 and meeting Monday and Wednesday evenings are Chair Yoga (5:15 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.) and Holy Yoga (6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.) in our fellowship hall. These classes are FREE, but donations are accepted. Dinner for Eight groups will be starting up soon. This is a fun way to meet others. The sign up sheet is located at the information kiosk. We have a variety of Bible Study groups which meet day or evening. Check them out and see if one of them might meet your needs. There are Craft nights, Movie nights, and so many other interesting ways to engage with others in the name of our Lord. I hope you will peruse our website for further details, and plan on visiting us in person real soon.
