January 15th Announcements and Connection Links

Dear TBC Family and Friends,

While Pastor John is suffering in Southern CA, we are enjoying single digit temperatures.  Thankfully the joy of the Lord has nothing to do with temperature or even the weather. :)

In the morning I am going to look at a message entitled “Fully Convinced and Intentionally Humble in Matters of Christian Liberty” (I stole the title but the message is mine!).  We are living in very divisive times in our country and among Christians.  Romans 14 deals with God’s plan for how to love each other while at the same time having opposite and even strongly held positions on issues that affect our lives.  Satan wants to divide but God is glorified when we respond properly.  Please come if you can or livestream if you must, but don’t miss. 

In the evening, Dave Pepe is going to open our eyes to how the Ultimate Discipler and Faithful Shepherd enables us to experience His life living through us.  I hope you can come back in the evening!

Thanks, PR
