March Worship Schedule

Worship is the heart of the church! Sunday morning worship services are at 10:00 a.m.

Church school for children preschool through grade 8 is offered during the worship time September 8 through May. Children begin in the sanctuary for worship for the first 15-20 minutes, and then are dismissed to their church school classes following the Children’s Time.

The first Sunday of the month is usually a Communion Sunday and Family Sunday, No church school classes are offered on those Sundays. Children are invited to participate in worship with their families. All may participate in Communion, including young children, if their parents believe they have some understanding of the special nature and meaning of Communion.



Upcoming Events

Below is a list of some upcoming events that we will be hosting or participating in. We would love to have you join us!

Storytelling party – during Fellowship Hour on March 25. Come by to tell your stories of God moving in and through Lyonsville Church and hear others tell their stories. If you’d like, we can write the story down for the memory book.

EASTER SERVICE—April 1 at 10:00. Celebrating Christ’s resurrection in song and word, prayer and praise. An Easter egg hunt follows the service!

HEIFER INTERNATIONAL – Beginning March 4th, we will collect donations for Heifer International by distributing plastic Easter eggs to our members and friends. We ask that you bring the eggs back on Easter Sunday filled with coins and/or dollar bills. For as little as $20 we can buy a flock of ducks, chicks or geese; for $120 we can buy a goat, a sheep or a pig. Giving an animal is like giving someone a small business, providing wool, milk, eggs and more. Animal donations can provide families a hand up, increasing access to medicine, school, food and a sustainable livelihood. Please help us make a difference.

Easter Food Baskets: The Mission Ministry will be putting together Easter Food Baskets, which will be given out at our Lyonsville Food Pantry. If you would like to donate towards a ham dinner, we will be collecting canned fruit, canned vegetables, boxed potatoes and money (for the purchase of the hams). We would like to provide 20 dinners, if possible. Thank you.

Pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House
We are collecting pop tabs to take to the Ronald McDonald House.  We will have a collection container located in the fellowship hall. If you have any questions please see Cindi Fiandaca.

Box Tops for Education
We are also collecting Box Tops for Education to give to Byrne School.  Collecting Box Tops is an easy way for schools to earn cash.  It’s easy to find Box Tops (a list will be by the collection box). In fact, you may have some in your home right now.  All you have to do is clip the Box Tops from your favorite products and put them in the collection container located in the fellowship hall.  If you have any questions please see a member of the Mission Board.

Community Nurse Collection
New onesies, new receiving blankets, baby hats, bandages designed for children, and small, soft animals (e.g. Beanie Babies) are being collected.
Please bring donations to church.
