Thank you all who contributed who contributed to the donations that went to The Meadows and Goochland Women's Prison work-release program.  19 residents at The Meadows were given gift bags for Christmas.  The work-release program received a donation of jewelery for the women to use when they go for job interviews.
Church Growth
The Session asks all members and visitors to invite friends and family to come and visit Byrd.  We believe that through "Life Style Evangelism", reaching out to others in word and deed, we can grow the church of Christ.  In order to best implement this plan, we invite all members and visitors to share any thoughts, positive or negative, concerning the growth of Byrd with either an Elder or Rev. O'Connell.  We look forward to hearing from you.
Adult Sunday School
Byrd offers an Adult Sunday School class at 10 am every Sunday and all are welcome.  The class discusses the previous Sunday's sermon and looks ahead to the next sermon text.  We look forward to see you there.
Goochland Food Bank still needs our support!
The local food bank is in need of any kind of food and toiletries.  This is an ongoing urgent need.  Please bring any kind of food and or toiletries to church on Sunday and they will be taken to the bank.  Your support for the important outreach is appreciated.
Invite Your Friends To Byrd
Byrd is an unique faith community.  Let us share this uniqueness with our friends by inviting and encouraging them to come and worship with us.  Byrd, through the work of the Holy Spirit, changes and impacts the lives of many.  Your friends and neighbors can be experience this as well. Invite them and bring them along to experience God's caring and loving for all His people.
