The Pastors Message

The Epistle - November 2014

Welcome to Antioch United Methodist Church!

Whether you are seeking a new church home or exploring church for the first time, we are glad you are here.

Antioch UMC

We, the congregation of Antioch United Methodist Church, believers in one true God,
come together in love and unity to nurture all people and enrich the lives of the community.

Our congregation’s roots trace back over 200 years. The sanctuary has been in continuous use since 1857.
That’s a long time, and we are proud of our tradition!
Yet in the tradition of the Christian faith, we are relative newcomers!

We honor and respect our past while looking ahead to the future. And we are excited about what we see!
We are growing in spiritual vitality, outreach and mission, and in people participating.

On a typical Sunday morning, over 50 people of varying ages gather to worship at 11:00 am. We offer nursery
services for infants and toddlers, although children of all ages are welcome in worship. Children’s Church
is a ministry to children ages 3 to 11 that exposes them to the beginning of the worship service,
and then they retreat to age appropriate Bible lessons and activities.
Sermons are recorded and available on our website,
The Pastors Message.

Here are some of the ministries in which we’re involved:
An engaging daytime Bible Study that meets each week
Monthly worship services with the residents of Pine View Rest Home
Sending a team of volunteers to repair homes in eastern North Carolina
A “Conversation on Forgiveness” small group study
Provide a “Longest Night” worship experience for those grieving at Christmas time
Assemble emergency response kits in case of natural disasters anywhere in the world
“Lord, Teach Us to Pray” classes on how and when to pray and study God’s Word
Distribute weekly recorded worship services to area homebound and nursing homes
An inspiring and challenging word to the commuting community via message board
Join community churches to be a “Neighbor Helping Neighbors,” a construction ministry
Gleaning vegetables from area farms for those experiencing poverty and hunger
Children’s overnight “lock-in” for recreation, fellowship and scripturally-based life lessons
Celtic style prayer services each week during Advent
A mission – oriented group of the United Methodist Women
Food-For-Thought offering light lunch and discussion about the day’s sermon
Vibrant “Prayer-gram” ministry
Two annual food drives for those in need
Gift ministries for local and international children
Quarterly congregational fellowship meals

You are invited to come worship, learn and serve with the Antioch community as we seek to be
the presence of Christ to the world around us. 3311 South Hill Road Kenbridge, Virginia 23944 (434) 676-2314 Pastor Alan Layman Email Services each Sunday Sunday School 10:00 AM Worship Service 11:00 AM
