August 1st Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends,
Last Sunday evening I asked Eli to do a message on marriage and family. It was so helpful that I asked him to preach it on Sunday morning and then continue the discussion on the Sunday evening Zoom. I know that it will be very helpful to our church for every person since the broader applications are for all relationships. If you were on the Zoom on Sunday evening I know that you will be as interested as I am to review the 7 points that Eli made and try to understand how to apply them. Invite a friend to either come or to watch the livestream on Sunday morning.
We are looking forward to a great, but completely redesigned Vacation Bible School. Please pray for God to give health and great spiritual advancement. Let’s ask God to give the exact kids that would most benefit.
1. Our in-person, outdoor VBS is coming up on August 10-14th as a way to reach out to our community. The registration link is open. We are only able to accept the first 100 children who fit in our classes due to extra restrictions for COVID-19. You MUST preregister your children this year, and we suggest registering ASAP to make sure your kids can get a slot! You can also share the link with people you are trying to reach in the community. If you have any questions, please contact John or Alisa Dannecker or Jon or Chloe Mission.
2. We welcome Dave and Amy Pepe as the newest members of TBC!
3. The ladies of Truth Baptist Church are invited to Elisa Atwood’s baby shower on Saturday, August 8th, from 1-3pm, held at 1 Alexis Dr, Bolton, CT. This shower will be held open house style. Come and enjoy snacks & fellowship anytime between 1 & 3pm. Please RSVP to Raquel at 860-716-8134 or moc.liamg@017akr. Elisa is registered at Target & Amazon.
4. If you would like to sign up for text messages for urgent prayer requests from the CareTeam throughout the week, please register your phone number here.
