 Please mark your calendars for Sunday October 27th to come and share fellowship time and a meal together with Pastor Lynnette.


Tryon Downtown Halloween Stroll Thursday, October 31st, 2019:  TUMC will have a table set up at the Tryon Halloween Stroll again this year.  Please donate candy for this event by dropping off your candy donations at the church office.  Last year we handed out over 500 small bags of candy!  We also need volunteers for the day of the event both to set up, man the table and take it down.  We set up between 4:00-4:30 pm.  There will be a costume contest at 5:30 pm followed by the stroll, which lasts until around 7:30 pm.  Please contact the church office if you are able to help hand out candy and/or participate in set-up/take-down.


Page Turners - Wednesday, October 23, 2:00 pm:

We will discuss The Girl in the Letter by Emily Gunnis.  In the winter of 1956, pregnant young Ivy is sent in disgrace to St. Margaret’s, a home for unmarried mothers in the south of England, run by nuns, to have her child.  Her baby daughter is adopted.  Ivy will never leave.  This promises to be a tender, unforgettable story.
