 Tryon UMC is no longer live streaming its Sunday morning worship service, but will record and upload each week’s worship service to our church’s website as well as to Facebook.  Online viewers can watch each Sunday worship service anytime they wish during the week. Every effort will be made to have each Sunday’s worship service video available to view online no later than Monday at 6:00 PM.

On our church website, www.tryonumc.org, use the dropdown menu and select “Worship Video”. On our church’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/tumctryon, click on the menu item “Video”.



 We continue to encourage you to make your offerings to the church so that we can continue to operate and take care of the essential day-to-day things to keep us functioning as a church.  You can mail in your offering or come by and drop it in our locked mailbox.  You can also give on-line with your credit card.  Click on the link on our website under Giving.

Advent Bible Study  Sundays at 9:45 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall:

November 28—December 19, 2021.  What is His Name?  Jesus was called by many names.  Why did he have so many and what do they mean?  During the season of Advent, as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior, we will be studying some of the names given to Jesus and why they have meaning for us in this season and always.  We will use the book Names for the Messiah: An Advent Study by Walter Brueggemann.  It is available on Amazon for $11.69.  

For more information, contact Pastor Lynnette.


  Midweek Advent Meditations:  December 1st , 9th , 15th  and 22nd at 12:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary.  Light lunch in the Fellowship Hall following our time of meditation.  Plan to join us each Wednesday in December for a time to spend some quiet and reflective moments with God and each other in the season of Advent.  Each week we will spend time in prayer and conversation with the words of focus for each of Advent—Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. 

A light lunch will be offered following each gathering.  Please join us and invite a friend to come and enjoy and be part of these quiet moments in the midst of busy days. 


  New Men’s Group: A new Men’s Group has formed to learn more about the Bible and engage in discussions on matters important to them. The group will be meeting in the Library every other Sunday at 9:45 a.m. The first meeting was November 14. The group will start by reading the Gospel of Luke at a pace the group decides. All men are invited. The meetings will be informal. Contact Jim Holly for more information (803-221-4276).  Be daring and give it a shot! 


This year we are going to participate in the Tryon Christmas Parade, Thursday, Dec. 9th.  For the next few Sunday’s, please bring in bagged candy for us to pass out as we ride the float in the parade.  Also, if you would like to ride on the float, please let Kathleen know.





 Please fill out the attendance book which you will find at the end of each pew and then please tear off the completed attendance sheet and place it in an offering plate located at both exit doors at the conclusion of worship.  If you are a visitor, please provide your contact information as well as your name(s) the first time you visit so that we may get in touch with you.
