Prepare a way for the Lord! In both services, the waving of palm branches, and the music and voices will open our morning services as we prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of the Lord!
**For the children on Palm Sunday in the 9:30 am service**
Calling ALL families with kids... Join us for our traditional Palm Sunday procession during the 9:30 am service. Meet us in front of the steps of the sanctuary at 9:15 am. No child is too small to participate as they will be walking with you as a family. We encourage all families to participate and join us for an amazing service.
PALM SUNDAY PROCESSIONAL -- Imagine being part of the crowd welcoming Jesus into Jerusalem. . . waving branches and shouting Hosanna. What excitement and joy that day, celebrating and seeing Jesus. It was only a few days later, that those cries of Hosanna, became cries to "crucify Him."
We take part, every year, in a commemorative procession as a celebrating body of believers, waving palms and singing as we walk up the Sanctuary isles. It is within the shadow and presence of the cross that we celebrate and mourn on Palm Sunday- in preparation for the greatest sacrifice this world has ever known- that of our savior, Jesus Christ.

PATHWAY TO DISCIPLESHIP - Over the last year our pastors along with some lay leaders of our church joined with other congregations to participate in a year-long stewardship program by the Texas Methodist Foundation to learn how to foster healthy, significant, and effective discipleship practices in the local church. The end-product of this process is our Pathway to Discipleship! Initiative. The purpose of Pathway is to provide practical information and instruction to deepen the spiritual life of the members of Tyler Street Church and to empower and encourage them into faithful, joyful, and fruitful discipleship.
PROJECT HOPE is a holistic ministry that helps people look at all aspects of their lives. Together families and coaches focus on these 7 areas: family, faith, education, career, budget, health and personal issues. Together our goal is to break the cycle of poverty and help families be healthy, happy stronger Christians. We started over 3 years ago and have seen growth within ourselves, determination, happiness and successes. You may say, how can I help? Do I need something special? We need people willing to be coaches. A coach will receive some training, have some back up help when they need it and God watching over them. If you have about an hour a week to encourage and pray with someone else or know how to budget and are willing to guide someone in that area God needs you to volunteer to help his people. If you are interested, please contact Kathy Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
