MARCH 2024

The ByneLine communicates what we celebrate, what we do, and how we do it with unity, purpose, and passion!

Our 2nd Annual Night To Shine was truly unforgettable, leaving a lasting impression on all who participated and volunteered. It was a remarkable and touching occasion, witnessing love and positivity transcending from one room to another, showcasing the divine presence at Byne. The joy on the faces of our VIP guests and the dedication of the hardworking volunteers, who collaborated tirelessly to ensure the event's success, made it an exceptional Night to Shine. Here's to a fantastic event and we eagerly anticipate the next one!

DNOW

Byne Youth and Gillionville Youth are teaming up from March 8-10 to organize DNOW.The current cost is $60.
DNOW is a weekend retreat dedicated to rejuvenating and energizing middle and high school students. Participants will engage in both small and large group studies, enjoy lively worship sessions, and partake in exciting recreational activities with other teenagers. Throughout the weekend, students will stay in host-homes and on the Gillionville campus. This event is a highlight of the year, and we would love for you to join us!

We look forward to having our kids (K5 & up) join us for worship one Sunday each month, usually on the last Sunday. They can participate in various ways, such as leading music, praying, and engaging with the message. Don't forget to grab a kid's worship guide and after the service take it to Pastor Mark for a special prize!

For younger children (K-4 and under), we offer a nursery. It's a fantastic opportunity for families to come together and experience the power of faith.

Invite your loved ones to join us!

Discover what it means to join in the mission of Byne Church and how to be a part of the Byne family. We will have a time for questions as we share lunch directly following the service. If you would like to sign-up, click on the picture above. We hope to see you there!

SUPPORT WITH LOVE GROUP

If you're struggling with loss, the Support with Love Group is here for you. This group provides a secure environment where you can come to terms with your experience. You'll have the chance to connect with others, express yourself, and learn healthy ways to cope.

We meet every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month at 10:30am in the small group room.


OVERCOMERS

Join us on Friday's at 6:30pm in our small group room.

We are a supportive community for individuals struggling with a range of challenges, including mental illness, addiction, poor health, grief, and more. Together, we can work towards overcoming these obstacles and emerge stronger and more resilient.

Every day, I enjoy a session of, "Where did I leave my _______?" I am sure you have played it in your home as well. It is the game that no one chooses to play, but it always seems to start on the days when we are in a hurry. Those are the days we lose things. I typically play it in several rounds. "Where did I lose my keys" is typically followed by "where did I leave my wallet". Some days it is my phone, other days it is my bag.

Losing. Lost. Those words never have a positive connotation. No one is happy to be lost. No one is happy to lose something. Jesus threw His disciples for a loop when He told them they need to lose their life in order to find it. Intentionally, on purpose, willfully, lose your life.

This month, we will dig into the lives of characters in the Bible who came to a crossroad. Each had something to lose - everything. Each found something to gain - everything! The moment of salvation comes in the moment of surrender. Each moment of growth and development is preceded by another decision to submit and surrender to the Lordship of Christ.

Great news - there is unimaginable joy in "finding", especially in finding abundant, eternal life in Jesus!

What is the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering?

The offering was started in 1895 by Woman's Missionary Union® (WMU) to benefit the work of the Home Mission Board (now North American Mission Board). In 1934, it was named in honor of Annie Armstrong, a bold missions advocate and WMU's first national executive leader. Today, more than $2 billion has been donated by Southern Baptist churches and individuals to support thousands of missionaries in church planting and compassion ministries. Because of this sacrificial giving, millions of lives have been and continue to be transformed by the power of the gospel.

Your gifts move the mission forward

Your prayers and gifts to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® provide support for thousands of missionaries. These men and women are planting new churches in unreached communities and meeting needs through compassion ministries. Every day, lives are being impacted and transformed.

Byne's Offering Goal:$6,000
