December 4th Announcements & Connection Links

Dear TBC Family and Friends,

I hope everyone has been able to stay warm and dry this past week!  It has definitely been one of the coldest week of my life, but I am still loving Connecticut!  In fact, the Lord has blessed our family with a house! Kristen and I were able to close on a house on Tuesday, and it’s only about 2 miles from TBC.  We are overwhelmed with thankfulness to the Lord for TBC and our new life here in CT.

Tomorrow morning we will be having a communion service. The goal and focus of the service will be prayer, meditation, and singing as we corporately take Communion together as an act of worship to God. I hope that tomorrow’s order of service will be a blessing and a time of reflection and worship.

Also, if you are able, please come back and join us for the Sunday Evening service. Once a person gets saved it is important for them to take the Next Step in their Christian life.

As soul-winning Christians, it is important for us to learn how to encourage new believers to take that Next Step.  PR will give some ideas on how to encourage new or wavering Christians to want to grow in their Christian lives.  

Looking forward to seeing all of you and worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ together!

In Christ,

Pastor John
