April 10th Announcements and Connection Links
Dear TBC Family & Friends,
Tomorrow morning I am starting a series on the life of Elijah. He is a good example of someone who stood for God in the midst of a nation that had outlawed the worship of the true God. Jezebel had massacred many prophets of the Lord and installed Baal worship in its place at state expense. Ahab was the most godless of the kings up to that time. We can learn much from Elijah as we may face some of the same issues in our country. We will look at 1Kings 17:1 in the message, but reading 1 Kings 17 & 18 will give you a good foundation for this study.
Sunday evening we will discuss why God used someone as unconventional as Elijah do do such a great work.
Next week we will have Ray Hoover preach for us before he and Wanda return to Ethiopia. Keep them in prayer.
1. MEMBERSHIP: We will be voting on Terri Barahman for church membership this Sunday, April 11th.
2. TRUTH BASKETBALL: We have a few spots left, so you can still register your 7-12 aged children on our website until the slots are all filled. Please invite friends in your community as space allows!
3. TEENS: We are having a parent meeting on April 11th after the morning service. The teens have a preglow at church hosted by the Christophels on April 18th after the morning service.
4. VBS: VBS week is July 5-9th this year. If you would like to help with VBS, please plan to attend a Zoom VBS meeting at 7:30pm on Sunday, April 11th. You can also mark your calendars for the next two VBS meetings on May 16th and June 6th.
5. As a general reminder, please don’t come to church in person if you or anyone in your household have any flu-like symptoms or Covid-19 symptoms. Please continue to pray for God to protect our church from this virus.
