The Congregational Church of Tryon’s Church Beyond The Walls – What is it? The celebration of Easter challenges us to live lives of resurrection, loving God and loving our neighbors. A week later, on Sunday, April 28, for the second year in a row, members of the Congregational Church of Tryon lived out the resurrection by spending Sunday worship time doing good and spreading love in our community. It was a time of community, and service, with opportunities to serve for people of all ages and abilities.  


Worship began at 10:00 AM, one half hour earlier than usual, site work was from 10:30 p.m. to noon, when there was recap and worship with lunch provided following.
