April 30th Announcements and Connection Links

Dear TBC Family and Friends,

Earlier this week, the weather was great! I was taking walks outside with the dog, enjoying the sunshine, until midweek or so, everything got cold! But of course, I am learning the CT mantra, “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a day.” And so I did, and things got better! What a whirlwind CT weather can be.

But how great is our God who is always constant and never changing. Please join us tomorrow as we worship God with communion. As one of two ordinances we have from the Lord, it is important for us to take communion and remember what Christ has done for us and the salvation we have in Him.

Also, if you are able, I encourage everyone who considers TBC their home to come to our Family Meeting taking place on Sunday evening service. We will be talking about some future visions that I hope to take with TBC, particularly with the Children’s Ministry. There will be a time for Q&A as well for the topics discussed tomorrow. Afterward, there is a church fellowship so all the more reason to make it Sunday evening if you are able.

I hope that I will be able to see you all tomorrow, worshipping alongside you.

In Christ,

Pastor John
