What should you expect on a Sunday morning at Byerland Church? Well, you should expect to feel welcomed once you walk through our doors! When you arrive, you will be welcomed by one of our greeters, who will assist you with any questions you may have, and direct you to where you need to go. Below, you will find some answers to some of those questions you may already have about what to expect on a Sunday at Byerland Church….

Worship

Every Sunday Byerland church gathers at 10:00 – 11:30 am for a time of worship and preaching. Our Sunday service begins with a time of expressive worship & praise using a combination of contemporary and traditional music interspersed with scripture and prayer. Our accompaniment is piano, guitars, bongo drum, and occasionally flute and/or violin. This is then followed by a special message that is preached by one of our pastoral team. Attire varies from blue jeans to business casual. Click here for livestream on Facebook.

Sunday School & Growth Groups

Sunday School and Growth Groups meet from 9:00 – 10:00 am Sunday mornings. For more details see schedule in the BMC News.

Growth Groups meet to take what the Bible teaches and talk about how it affects everyday life.  The groups provide a private space for adults to share the joys and struggles of everyday life as we grow in love and character and are transformed by the word of God. Groups meet on both the lower and upper levels.

Children’s Church Beginning at age 3 through grade 3, children gather during the message time in age appropriate classes to learn Bible stories, memorize scripture, and apply what they are learning to everyday life.  The children begin the Sunday School hour with a time of large group singing. All Sunday School classes are located on the lower level (basement) of the Byerland Meetinghouse.

Parents will be instructed to sign their children IN & OUT of  Sunday School. This is part of our Safe Church Program that has been implemented by our Child Protection Team. All adults who participate or interact with children have passed a thorough back ground check. Your child’s safety and welfare is our number one priority here at Byerland Church!
