Our Mission


Oh how easy it is to get lost!  With our cell phones and iPads, our 24-hour news cycles, there’s virtually nowhere to go for a moment of peace and quiet.


That’s where Lyerly Evangelical Church comes in. We provide a holy place of respite in the tumult of life. So come, put aside the cares of the week and find yourself in the presence of God.

Lyerly Church adopted a new logo on April 30, 2017.  Here's its meaning:

HANDS lifted in praise and worship;

DOVE representing the Holy Spirit;

7-LEAF OLIVE BRANCH symbolizing perfect peace;

CROSS as our redemption in Jesus.

Q:  What kind of worship do we have?

A:  Our Sunday morning service is Spirit-led and the pastor preaches from the Bible.  The blended worship format is relaxed but reverent.  A projection system allows for multimedia elements.  Music is a blend of traditional hymns, old spirituals, contemporary Christian, and praise songs.

Q:  Is there an invitation at the service?

A:  Worshippers are invited to come for-ward at the end of the service to pray silently, accept the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Savior, talk with the pastor about specific needs, or just praise God.

Q:  How do worshippers dress?

A:  As our pastor says, "We don't care what you wear as long as it's enough."   On most Sundays you'll find everything from jeans to suits and ties.

Q:  What is an "evangelical" church?

A:  ​Evangelicals are Christians whose emphasis is on spreading the gospel, both locally and globally.  See our Missions link for more information.

​Q:  What about the church budget?

A:  Each fall the Stewardship Committee prepares a proposed budget after getting input from the church family.  The congre-gation must approve the budget.  No pledges are asked, rather we rely on the tithing principle for God's people.

Q:  Is the church building handicapped accessible?

A:  Yes!  The main entrance is ground level, and there is a wheelchair accessible restroom on the ground floor.


Our Church Family

We are a diverse group of believers who have come from many denominational backgrounds...United Church of Christ, Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterian, to name a few.  We have those who have been believers for decades, and we have some who have just come to know the Lord.  We take care of one another through acts of service, financial help, and prayer support.
