K-WAM! Kids With A Mission
Come join Tyrone’s 3rd through 6th graders on monthly service project opportunities in the community!
January/February Service Project-Share The Love of Reading!
Share The Love of Reading! KWAM (Kids With A Mission) will be collecting books now through the end of February.
We will be sending them to a ministry in Davao called Seeds of Dignity (SOD). They create partnerships with various ministries and communities to help raise the extremely poor up out of poverty (see their website – they say it so much better –http:// http://seedsofdignityministries.com/
They are in need of books – theological type for the seminaries and fiction and non-fiction for K-12.
Please place your gently used books in the box in the Narthex labeled KWAM BOOKS FOR SOD.
Thank you and Happy New Year! Marta Shaw
If you have questions or would like to help plan some local mission opportunities for K-WAM!, please contact Marta Shaw.
Great work on the KWAM books for Casa Bernabe in Guatemala
Tyrone’s Christmas Gift to the Community
Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year. For many, it is a season steeped in tradition and ritual; from the way we open the gifts under the tree to what family members cook what foods for Christmas dinner! One of those traditions which have been established by many families both locally and statewide is attending Tyrone Covenant Presbyterian’s annual Jesus Walk. Please join us Saturday, December 17th & Sunday, December 18th from 5:00-8:00 pm and journey with us through the live production of the true meaning of why we celebrate this season: from the prophecy of God’s promise of sending a savior for his people, through the events leading up to that glorious birth…the birth of God’s own son. If this is a tradition which you already look forward to each year, we welcome you back! If this is your first time in attendance, we pray that for you this would be a year of new tradition: of families celebrating together the birth of our Lord!
Jesus Walk Highlights from 2016
After the 20 minute walk is concluded, our guests are invited inside for homemade refreshments (coffee, hot chocolate, punch, cookies, finger foods, popcorn, etc…). Musical performances take place inside each evening.
This is our gift to the community. It is our joy to share the good news of the Gospel and the events that led up to the birth of Jesus Christ with those who attend each year.The Jesus Walk begins at 5:00 pm and closes at 8:00 pm both nights of the event.
Upward Basketball is locally sponsored by Tyrone Covenant Presbyterian Church, Fenton United Methodist Church & Linden Free Methodist Church
Upward basketball is a huge undertaking with over 500 players and it takes many people to make it happen. If you would like to be a part of this awesome ministry please contact Marta Shaw for Tyrone volunteers or Deb Rogers for FUMC volunteers. Areas that you can get involved are:
|Evaluations||There are 4 evaluation nights. Needs include setup/cleanup, uniform sizing, registrations, hall monitors, and child evaluations.|
|Coaches||If you are interested in coaching your child’s team, please indicate your commitment on the registration form. If you are interested in coaching any team.|
|Referees||Referees will be for Saturday games. Normally two referees per game. Includes controlling the game and helping the children to learn the game.|
|Scorekeepers||Games are only 1 hour long. Consider keeping score for your child’s game. Best seat in the house!|
|Concessions||Help our program by working the concessions table. You don’t have to do it all day. Only when you can.|
|Prayer Partners||This program needs prayer. Consider praying for us.|
|Devotions||3-5 minutes long during halftime of each game hour. Everyone has a testimony or something to share to affect the heart of a child.|
|Hall Monitors||Keeping people moving and in the right place ensures a smooth program. We always need help here.|

Kids Hope USA
Next Meeting: Sunday, February 19th immediately following morning worship. Please meet in the youth room for a light lunch, spouses and children are invited to eat with us.
THANK YOU for supporting our KIDS HOPE USA this year! Because of your love for children, we were able to give 15 children at North Road Elementary two very special gifts… a mentor, who faithfully showed up each week to help a child learn and remind the child that they are special AND a behind–the-scenes prayer partner.
We are grateful for the mentors and prayer partners who ministered to the children this year. God continues to transform lives through simple, one hour meetings between KIDS HOPE USA mentors and children.
And when you change a life, it’s no small change.

TITUS WOMEN…WHO & WHAT ARE THEY?
Titus Women are you and me! We are the women of the church from Senior High School girls to the Senior gals and all of us that fall in between. Our mission is to minister and mentor one each to the other as instructed.
Titus 2:3-5 tells us “Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.”
