December 19 Connection Links and Announcements
Dear TBC Family & Friends,
This is Christmas Sunday. As a pastor I always face Christmas with the question of what can be preached that I have not already exhausted. But every year I am amazed at the inexhaustible Word of God, and this amazement is true again for the message I’ll be preaching tomorrow morning. We have been looking at the God who has His highest glory as the rule by which He chooses the course of history. Looking at the Christmas story from this focus as I have this week, I have seen the Christmas story in a completely different perspective. The story is the same but the lessons about God and for us are new and refreshing. Please come or join in online to look at the Christmas story from how this story most greatly glorifies God by using people in a way that no human being can take the praise.
Sunday evening we have a Christmas music program with a light fellowship afterward. I really appreciated the program by Truth young people last Sunday evening and am looking forward this music program tomorrow evening.
Please invite a friend to come or tune in on Christmas Sunday. I invited a couple people I have been developing a relationship with over the last couple months. It is exciting to be used of God in the task of fishing for people for His kingdom.
1. Tomorrow, Sunday evening at 6:00pm, we will be having our Christmas music service entitled “Once Upon” - a musical journey through the Old Testament prophecies and a celebration of the Savior who fulfilled them. This service will be livestreamed and in person. We will have a light fellowship with prepackaged snacks in the gym following the program.
2. TEENS: No teen group this week on 12/23. December 30th teen group will be Zoom only. January 6th teen group will be in person and over Zoom for the Christmas party!
3. 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.
