Why Haywood Street?

Titus 2:11-14
11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purifyfor himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

Mark Siler,

Associate Pastor

Why Haywood Street?
Because, in the end, all I can really hope for is a place to wrestle with this wonderfully mysterious God of the Good News. The God who is always putting me in different holds, playfully pinning me to the mat, lovingly lifting me up and stretching my too small notions of kinship.

Michael, Respite
Program Manager

Why Haywood Street?
So often in life things just seem to happen. The days go by quickly. It is easy to lose focus on the important things in life. People!!!! Being a part of Haywood Street is being a part of people. Being involved in other people’s lives. Letting others be involved in your life. Our hopes and dreams. Sharing our stories. Taking the time to stop and just be present. To laugh, to smile, to cry. To not be alone. To live in community. To feel and to share the beauty of God’s love for us.

Haywood Congregation Staff Laura
Laura Kirby, Executive Director

Why Haywood Street?

I became involved at Haywood Street before it even began, when it was still an idea, a vision, a Holy inspiration. In 2009 as the ministry was developing I was completing the steps necessary for consecration as a Deaconess in the United Methodist Church.  I raised my hand to indicate that I wanted to be a part of it, though what “it” was remained unclear.  A Deaconess is a lay person (versus clergy) who makes a lifetime commitment to ministries of justice, service and love, and works in ministry settings where professional skills and training can be put to use.  My background is in the nonprofit sector, with master’s degrees in social work and public health. I like to describe being a Deaconess as having one foot in the church and one foot in the world. At Haywood Street, I am able to be who I believe I am called to be.

Dave, Banquet Steward

Why Haywood Street?

When I found Haywood Street, I was searching for a different way of life because the one I had was not working anymore.  Years of anger and rebellion had painted me into a corner.  I was tired, confused and thirsty.  I found Haywood Street through its founding Pastor, Brian Combs, in the spring of 2011 and discovered a brand new life, and a Church that I could believe in. It is such an honor to be here.  I think that Haywood Street fits me best because I can only experience Christ at the lowest point of the day and this is a place where many worlds collide, in the sweetest of ways.  Table to Pew, Haywood Street beckons the heart to heal and the spirit to fly.

Why Haywood Street?

I’ve never experienced a more authentic and genuine community than Haywood Street. As Companion Coordinator I get to watch people fall in love with this place and feel connected to community in a way they never have before, reminding me every day of my own call and connection to this transformational community.
