Sunday, June 26, 2022 Service



 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.

 Page Turners Book Club On Wednesday, July 27th, the Page Turners will meet to discuss the novel Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan. Pino Lella wants nothing to do with the war or the Nazis. He’s a normal Italian teenager―obsessed with music, food, and girls―but his days of innocence are numbered. When his family home in Milan is destroyed by Allied bombs, Pino joins an underground railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps, and falls for Anna, a beautiful widow six years his senior. In an attempt to protect him, Pino’s parents force him to enlist as a German soldier―a move they think will keep him out of combat. But after Pino is injured, he is recruited at the tender age of eighteen to become the personal driver for Adolf Hitler’s left hand in Italy, General Hans Leyers, one of the Third Reich’s most mysterious and powerful commanders.  Come join us as we delve into another WWII story. We meet in the church library at 2PM, usually on the fourth Wednesday of each month.  For more information, contact Lynn Montgomery. 


➢Upper Room:  July - August 2022 copies are now available outside of the office.
