WHAT IS HERE FOR YOU AT LOYD CHURCH

 

You and your family are important to us. We believe that you will want a healthy environment and safe place for your family to grow in faith:

 

IN CHRISTIAN LEARNING

  • GOD’S PROMISED LAND is our innovative Sunday School program for children ages pre-school through fifth grade. Members of our congregation teach rotating classes of Bible-based lessons.
  • YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL creatively speaks to the needs of middle graders and high school students as they mature physically, emotionally and spiritually.
  • ADULTS are offered three different classes, of varying interests, to assist them in their spiritual growth: using traditional  Bible study materials, contemporary-concerns, and discussions of marriage and child-rearing.

 

IN CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND OUR COMMUNITY

There are a great many opportunities for Loyd folks to serve one another and the world around us, including:

  • Timely visitation to hospital patients and homebound members.
  • Annual Mother-Daughter Banquet, hosted by the Men of the Church, a popular  day-before-Mother's-Day tradition..
  • Souper Bowl Sunday, a yearly youth sponsored event on the big football Sunday, to raise money to feed the hungry in our community
  • Mission Luncheons to benefit Christian outreach around the world, including the support of a child at Thornwell Home in Clinton, SC.
  • Regular offerings of time and money to the local Food Closet and LaGrange Personal Aid.
  • Vacation Bible School provided for a whole week each summer as an outreach ministry of the congregation.
  • Co-Hosting the Camp Viola day camp experience in July for the less-privileged children throughout the area.

 

IN FELLOWSHIP

You will never be without something to do at Loyd Church!

  • “40 Something” Group (Ages 40-50): Finding ways to share in fellowship and common interests.

  • Presbyterian Women (PW): In addition to numerous ministry projects – mission luncheons, a Women’s birthday celebration and meals for families in grief - the women of Loyd Church also have two circles meeting monthly for Bible study and fellowship.

 

IN PRAISE

Congregational hymn singing is a vital part of our worship together. Special music for worship is highly valued, and we provide talented musicians to inspire our congregation. The Adult Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. and at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings in preparation for the 11:00 a.m. worship service. We encourage individuals to offer their musical gifts in service to God.

The Christian Seasons are vital in our worship and music. We glorify God in special ways during Lent and Advent, on Pentecost, during Baptism and Confirmation, and to Celebrate the Gifts of Women in Christian service.
