Lent begins

Image result for lent

Lent is a forty-day period of reflection and repentance (not counting Sundays) that honors Christ’s time in the desert.  Christians remember the temptations of Christ by giving something up or taking something on.  According to Twitter, the top things people are giving up in 2019 are social media, chocolate and alcohol; the item that rose the most on this year’s list is plastic.  57% of those taking something on chose going to church!  Consider these suggestions as well: starting and/or ending each day in prayer; keeping a spiritual journal; reading one of the Gospels; or volunteering.  May we grow closer to our Lord during Lent as we await the celebration of Easter!

Welcome to the Sayville United Methodist Church!

IMG_3614The Sayville United Methodist Church is a community of faith that celebrates the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Our church welcomes people of all ages and stages of faith.  We offer many Bible studies as well as programs for youth, senior citizens and everyone in between. We are located at 164 Greene Avenue in Sayville, NY, at the intersection of Greene Avenue and Montauk Highway, across from Dunkin Donuts.  Parking is available in the lot across the street on the Greene Avenue side.  The church also has a small lot reserved for our seniors and others who may need assistance.

We hope you’ll join us Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. (9:30 from July 1 through Labor Day Weekend).   Throughout the year, we also offer a number of special services, including Youth Sundays (led by our youth group) and Music Services (featuring creative instrumentation and a short sermon).  Our average attendance is 100.  Be sure to pick up a visitor’s packet while you’re here!  Feel free to call us at (631) 589-0624 or email us at umcsayville@optonline.net if you have any further questions!  May God bless you this day and always!
