First Byron CRC offers these programs, services and opportunities to fit many needs. They are listed in the hope that you will find several that interest you and that you may enjoy Christian fellowship, the study of God's Word, and the promotion of Kingdom cause.
Basket MinistriesThis ministry welcomes visitors, celebrates the birth of babies, encourages sick and shut-ins, college students, military, and friends and neighbors who have a need with the gift of a visit and a basket filled with goodies and surprises. Gift baskets are also given by our sidewalk counselors to girls deciding for life for their babies. Women who want the joy of serving others are encouraged to become involved. (Donations of gifts to fill baskets are gratefully accepted from all our members and can be placed in the baskets found under the signup table in the foyer.)
Health Ministry Team/ Parish NursingThis if for those interested in preventative health and assistance to members who have health needs; many of the Health Team are nurses. They meet every 3 months for an hour on a Sunday afternoon. They are available to help those with health needs with such things as blood pressure checks, health screening, health education, personal health counseling (medication, diet, referrals), visiting, transportation. They provide health-related articles.
Helping HandsA group of volunteers coordinate meal deliveries from church members for other members who are ill, recovering from surgery, new moms, grieving, etc. Other help, such as rides to the doctor, cleaning, childcare, etc. are volunteered as well.
Wednesday Evening Bible StudiesCome out on Wednesday nights at 6:45 in the church santuary. Pastor Tom will lead a study called Psalms for Life. If you'd like to learn how to share your faith more effectively, then come and learn from Jesus himself. This is a study for both men and women.
Pastor Ken will be leading a class on sermon evaluation called "Pews That Build Pulpits". We all believe that a strong pulpit (preacher) builds strong pews (people); but it's also true that strong pews (people) build strong pulpits (preachers). One way that the pew can build up the pulpit is prayer. It's also necessary to be good listeners. If there is a craft of preaching well there is also a craft of listening well. This craft of listening well is the subject of this class. In "Pews That Build Pulpits" we will examine anonymous sermons from around the country to try to learn what makes for a good sermon. We'll study principles of interpreting the Bible and note how they are used in these sermons.
