August 28th announcements & connection links

Dear TBC Family & Friends,


Toward the end of Elijah’s life on earth, God had him send an unpopular message to the King.  The King was not happy and sent a captain with 50 men to arrest Elijah.  Elijah prayed that God would send fire and destroy them – God did.  The King sent another captain and his 50 and the same thing happened.  The King sent another captain with 50 who humbly appealed to Elijah for mercy.  Please come tomorrow morning to explore the very real world where we live applications of this passage to our lives.  

On Sunday evening Zoom we will discuss how to apply Elijah and the captains of 50’s in our world.  Why was God so offended?  What can we learn?  If we have time I would also love to explore how Ahab’s moodiness left him open to influences that made him feel better but brought God’s judgment on his life.  How can we apply this to ourselves and those we can encourage?

We are excited about the great turnout on the first day of soccer.  Please pray for the coaches and leaders so that God can touch many people this season.  If you have time, please come on Saturday mornings or Thursday evenings to get to know people that we may reach with the gospel.

Keep on going for Christ.
