Heyward Street United Methodist Church


Thank you so much for the love offering you gave to my son and our family. Michael just got out of his 9 hour heart surgery and into ICU. I will be able to visit with him there in about 45 mins. I appreciate all of your support and prayers!
Thank you so much for the love offering. It was so kind and generous . It has really helped to take some of the stress off during our time at the hospital. I will keep Tammy updated on his surgery progress.

Four Viruses Afflicting the Pre-COVID Church (And Their Vaccines) — Pinnacle Leadership Associates


The attached article gives good insights into what church looked like pre-March 2020 and how we have, or have not, adapted to church in the midst of Covid. I found the article to be clear, warm, engaging and thought provoking. Give it a read and let me know what you think.

pinnlead.com Rev. Mark Tidsworth, Team Leader Romans 8:28 says God works all things together for good, not that God causes all things. I suspect God is even more grieved over this Coronavirus afflicting this world than any of us, given God’s great love for humankind. So, where is the good in this life disrupti...


In the middle of the week or the middle of the afternoon, it is good to be reminded.


Please encourage your friends with preschoolers to check out Heyward Street Preschool. We have openings available.
