Special events planned at First Assembly of God Church

First Assembly of God, located on 12th Street and Blair Avenue in Tyrone, has several special events to look forward to in the upcoming months.
On May 28, the MAPS/RV volunteers scheduled for Sunday morning have been canceled, however, an old-fashioned hymn sing will be held in the evening, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Men are invited to join in fellowship at the men’s breakfast on June 10 at Joe’s Place at 8 a.m. The breakfast is a good opportunity to bring a friend and get to know the other members of the church.
On June 20, the Women of Purpose family picnic will be held at Reservoir Park.
The church also has special guests lined up. On August 13, Evangelist Richard Rothkind will speak at 6:30 p.m. Then, on September 17, Jeremy Sweeten, missionary to the Jewish people, will be at morning worship service.
Finally, the Fall Mission’s Banquet with Missionary Rick Wislocky will be held October 14.
Also, this year, the church is planning the first ever Homecoming Sunday, which is scheduled for Sunday, October 1.
The morning speaker will be Rev. Leroy Wiley, who was pastor at First Assembly of God in Tyrone from 1969 through 1974.
Following the morning service, there will be a covered dish fellowship dinner in the fellowship hall. There will be no evening service.
It is the hope of the church that many who have moved away, including family members and those who formerly attended church, will be able to come back to visit the church family for this special day of fellowship.
There will be special music and other activities as well.
Although Rev. Wiley will be the speaker for this first homecoming event, church members extend an invitation to all former pastors to join in the festivities.
They also encourage anyone who is unable to attend the celebration, to send along works of greeting that can be shared with those in attendance.
