Welcome visitors!

A word of welcome to visitors to Byrd Presbyterian Church. We appreciate you worshiping with us and hope to see you again. Please feel free to contact Rev. O’Connell (514-6260) if you want any information or assistance.

From the Session

The session will be meeting on Wednesday, October 8th.  This is a change from the usual first Wednesday.
The Session is always interested in hearing from you.  If you have any concerns or praises, please talk to any Elder or Rev. O'Connell.
New Members and Baptism
Sunday, September 14th, we welcomed six new members to the Byrd community!  At the same time two youth were baptized and several baptism were renewed. What a joyous set of events!
Picnic and Fun!
Sunday, September 28th, we will be going to Powhatan State Park to sit back relax or play games.  Bring you own picnic, games and chairs or blankets.  Plan on arriving sometime between 2 and 3.  This will give us plenty of time to eat and play, and get the kids in bed on a school night.  All are welcome, and, if you have any questions, please contact Kristi Bunovich.

Powhatan State Park is just off of 522 in Michaux, which is south of the James River.

Welcome them to the church!
Byrd welcomes Brenda Martin and Catherine Blackburn to the church.  Brenda will be helping out with the cleaning of the church, and Catherine will be our new Choir Director.  Please welcome them to the church!
Byrd Youth
The Youth committee started working on the planning of a youth program that will include outing and worship involvement.  If you have any ideas please contact either Kristi Bunovich or Ian Armitage.
Community Outreach
Stay tuned for monthly updates how Byrd Presbyterian Chruch is reaching out and impacting the Goochland community in many ways.
A word from Reverend O'Connell:

I would like to visit all the members of the congregation.  I will start off with the present Elders and then work through the member list.  I will either contact you by phone or email to set up a time to visit.  In the meantime, please fee free to conta t me whenever you feel like it and I will come to visit.  I hope to see you soon!

Please bring any donation to church, leave them up front, and they will be delivered to the food bank later in the week.
