August 29th Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends,
This morning will be the last message in the 2 Timothy series. It marks Paul’s last words of encouragement to Timothy and the Church of Jesus Christ as a whole before his death. In these words Paul gives Timothy and us encouragements to keep focused even when many want to surround themselves with preachers who tickle their ears with messages that are little more than fables. But Paul reminds us that if we are faithful, there will be a great reward when Jesus comes for all who are looking forward to His coming.
Don’t miss the Sunday evening videos and discussion. A 4 minute video presents a question that many struggle with: “Do all religions lead to God?” The author will present a 10 minute answer from his perspective. Then we will have the opportunity to discuss the question from a practical and biblical point of view.
Next week, I would like to start a series about True Spirituality. We will find that God’s ways are exactly opposite of man’s natural ways. God has designed life so that no flesh will be able glory in HIs presence. Understanding this will help us put several aspects of the Christian life into proper perspective. Please invite a friend.
Also after the morning service we have two people coming to be baptized. This is exciting for them and for us.
1. Sunday School promotion is happening on September 6th at 9:15am in the auditorium. If your child is moving to 1st grade, 3rd grade, 5th grade, 7th grade, or 10th grade, if you haven’t already, please reply to this email with your child’s name and grade so we can get your kids properly promoted. :) We are planning to transition back to in-person Sunday School classes (with a Zoom option as well) on September 6th. If you have any questions, please contact Melanie.
2. Most mid-week Sunday School classes will not be happening this week due to back to school schedules and in person/Zoom classes beginning at the new time of 9:30am next Sunday.
