Online Worship – Sundays at 10:00am
All our worship services can be found by clicking on our YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsvQgAY8Y3PyvTcCNAmUnUg You can either view previous services here or tune in at the time of a service to watch it live. (Live services won’t appear on the page until a few minutes prior to the service.)
Wednesday Night Outdoor Worship
Although we are still continuing our online services on Sunday mornings, we will also begin offering a mid-week outdoor worship on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket to the church’s back lot and enjoy a casual, in-person, socially-distanced worship. We will enjoy prayer, music, a message, and holy communion (bring your own bread & juice!). Face masks are required. If there is inclement weather that night, the service will be canceled.
Racism Book Study – Mondays
In light of continued acts of racism, we would like to continue our conversation about issues that are present today. We are meeting on Mondays at 1:00 pm or 7:00 pm and are studying Ibram X. Kendi’s book, “How to Be an Anti-Racist”. Contact Rev. Mary for participation info.
Summer Lunch Program - Begins June 30th!
On Tuesdays & Thursdays throughout the summer from 12:00 - 1:00 pm we will prepare and deliver 300 free lunches each week to those in South Lyon who might not otherwise get a lunch. We will be distributing sack lunches at four different locations: South Lyon First UMC (back parking lot), Country Estates mobile homes, Kensington Place mobile homes, and South Lyon Woods mobile homes. Due to COVID-19 all foods will be pre-packaged this year. We have a core group of volunteers who will be assembling the lunches, but volunteers are still needed for the Tue/Thu deliveries. Contact Jordyn Walkup if you would like to help. Monetary donations are appreciated, as our expenses will be higher this year. Donate on our website or by mailing a check to the church. Designate as Summer Lunch Program (or June Mission of the Month).
